2021 Virtual Dronfield 10k

until

A virtual event is where athletes and runners compete virtually, aiming to run for a specified distance over the course of the designated race window.

2020 has been an odd year to say the least. We're now at the point where the Dronfield 10k committee should be getting together, usually in a pub, to discuss and arrange the 2021 event. This time, due to the many unknowns that lay ahead, we have decided to not host the race this year, for the first time since it's first, back in 1993! Thanks to some amazing support and encouragement on our Facebook page, we have decided to host a virtual event in it's place. We want to keep our runners active and engaged so we'll hopefully see you next year! What is a virtual race? A virtual race is a concept that has been gaining traction over the past few years and, with Covid restrictions in place, has really boomed throughout 2020. A virtual race is where participants can run the event in their own time, at their leisure, then submit 'proof' of completion - usually in the form of a Strava (or similar) activity screenshot. Rules Runners will need to .... ... sign up to the event here. Entries will close on Sunday 28th March 2021 and cost £6. ... complete the 10k, at your leisure, at your own pace - walk, jog or run, anytime within March. ... capture proof of their run (for example on Strava, or another fitness tracker) of 10k. ... upload their proof before the closing date of 13th April. Further details: Everyone who completes the event will receive a medal. As we're trying to keeps costs low, reduce waste and raise money for the Scout Group, we'll be handing out the 'Harry' medals from previous years. As well as whenever, runners can run wherever they like. All results will be posted on our results page, we will have a table for the official route and a table for all other routes. Detail on how to submit proof will be emailed to you on entry, so please keep hold of your confirmation e-mail - although we can resend if needed. Where will proceeds go? As always, our proceeds will be primarily destined for 7th Dronfield Scouts. This is typically spent on improvements to the scout facilities, such as an accessible entrance, tents and other camping accessories and subsidies for more costly activities so that no scout is costed out of participating. However, this year, there's shortfall from scout subscriptions and income from other groups using the hall, so entry fees will cover the day to day maintenance costs of the hut.
