Virtual is on the rise @ The Running Bee!

You may Bee aware that recently the Running Bee Foundation hosted our very first Virtual event – the Virtual Tour of Tameside! This offered experienced runners and new runners alike the chance to complete their chosen distance of the Tour of Tameside – one of our most popular annual events – in their own time and in a location of their choosing, keeping within current social distancing guidelines.

The event was such a tremendous success and we’ve had such a fantastic response, it got us thinking: Maybe there really is a big future for virtual running events!

Which is why we’re thrilled to announce…

Tameside Virtual Run

Once again, Tameside is going virtual! The brand new Tameside Virtual will allow you to run a 5K, 10K, HALF-MARATHON or FULL MARATHON from a location in of your choosing. You can also achieve your chosen distance over a number of runs if you wish, so not having to complete it in one go!

As long as you’re running your chosen distance and staying safe, the route is really up to you! The entry for this special event is just £10 with all profits from entry sales going straight to the TAMESIDE SCANNER APPEAL; A worthy cause that’s sure to help save lives throughout the region if enough funds are raised.

Once you’re done, simply upload a photo of you running or celebrating your big win and that’s it! You’ll even get your own finisher’s medal, just like in a real race! Reserve your place at the button below. Once you’re all signed up you have until August 10th to finish.

Just like Tameside, it looks as though Preston is getting the virtual touch, too! The very first Preston Virtual will, once again, see runners going for their choice of  5K, 10K, HALF-MARATHON or FULL MARATHON.

The same rules and pricing as above apply (£10 entry, August 10th deadline). All profits from this virtual event will go to CASH FOR KIDS, a wonderful charity with an amazing history of supporting young people in need.
