Evening All,

I've seen on social media (Instagram mainly) a think called Pow Virtual running.
They have different events each month and medals to match the events.... A run on May 4th gets you a Star Wars like medal.
Most of them are £10 to enter and each one is for a different charity.

Has anyone seen or heard of this and taken part?
What are people's views on it?

Thanks
Churchy

20% - £2 - goes to the charity, the other £8 is so someone can send you a medal for just going for a run by yourself? That's a bit steep.

I don't understand the attraction, but I'm guessing it's more for people that don't want to or can't do a regular race?

Yes it is steep. They are obviously taking out their costs of posting, admin and buying the medals (and profiting)

Got something to say?
