Sustrans is the charity organisation behind funding the regeneration of the wonderful Two Tunnels route. As with our real life events, we will be donating £1 per medal to Sustrans to ensure the tunnels are maintained for the enjoyment of all for many years to come.
Our 2017 Two Tunnels series event has been the most popular series so far. Lots of people have come across the series mid way through and are keen to collect the medal set, but ran out of events to do so. Therefore we are offering these medals out via a virtual event. All you have to do is;
- Complete a run, walk or jog of the appropriate distance; 5km, 10km or Half Marathon and we will send you a medal with a virtual Relish Running Races ribbon.
- If your route takes in at least one of the tunnels of the Two Tunnels races route then we will send you a Two Tunnels 5km, 10km or Half Marathon ribbon
- The minimum distance to be completed is 5km. Beyond that, the distances do not need to be round numbers eg a 12km run qualifies for a 10km medal. You do not need to copy the race routes, just incorporating a tunnel does the job
Once you have completed your run, you need to send us your proof and we will send you your medal. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see how we number the medals and which ones you need to complete the set. The proof can take the form of a photo of your watch, a screen shot of your strava, or just a picture of your training log. We can't accept GPS, gpx files or other fanciness I'm afraid. We will send out medals once a week, usually on a Friday, so they should arrive early the following week.
The runs can be completed any time. We will end this event mid March 2019 when the 2019 real world series kicks off, or when all medals of any particular number are claimed that will close that medal out from the virtual event, we will not be making a top up order..
Please note this is a virtual event; there is no insurance, no first aid cover provided by the event organisers. We recommend you build up the distance of your runs gradually and that you should seek professional medical advice should you have any concerns about your health, or ability to complete your own personal challenge.
