Live Life Virtual 5km & 2km Runs
Interested in some fun, friendly competition while getting your daily exercise, while also raising money for a good cause in local communities?Why not take part in a virtual run which aims to raise money for the Sandpiper Trust, a Scottish charity which works to improve rapid response medical care? It’s been organised by Live Life Aberdeenshire's events team, which runs events like the Great Inverurie Bike Ride and local triathlon and duathlons.
Our timing partner in those events, Thistle Timing, is supporting the virtual run, making live results available online as they're submitted.
You can take part as many times as you like from Friday May 15th to Monday, May 25th, with the top participants highlighted on social media afterwards.
Choose to run either 2K or 5K on a route close to home - whichever you can complete in your hour of daily exercise - then upload your time.
You can also choose to walk if you prefer - the main thing is to get some exercise and have some fun.
While it is free to take part, donations to the Sandpiper Trust are encouraged through its JustGiving page.
All participants should follow national social distancing guidelines and only organise to run with others where they are part of their household, staying two metres apart from other people.
