The Lions Martian Virtual Race 2020

3k, 5k, 10k and 21k run, anywhere, any route, any time – before 30th September 2020

Medal Update

Thanks to all our runners who have signed up and are taking part already. Sadly the uptake on the run has not been what we originally anticipated and its difficult to gauge how many more will register and take part, although over the last couple of weeks we have put out posters widely and have an article in this week’s Woking News & Mail to publicise the Run. We want to raise as much as possible for LOCAL GOOD CAUSES and minimise the cost of medals by over-ordering medals as we have been unable to get the cost sponsored this year – every penny counts particularly at this difficult time. We have therefore decided to order the medals after 30th September when we know exactly the numbers we need. Once they arrive, we will mail or deliver them out to all are runners.


While the world is in lockdown, its very important to be active and to look after your physical and mental health. The virus also having a significant effect across our local community and we are conscious of the impact on those who heavily rely on donations at the very hour of their greatest need.

This is why we have decided to host the Lions Martian Virtual Race 2020. Every penny raised from this volunteer based event will go to charity including the NHS. With a choice of distances what better way to stay fit and bond with your family and help those in need?

How does it work?

A virtual run works exactly as any other type of run but the difference is that it can be run at any location and anytime before Septemeber 30th 2020. All you do is choose a distance, run it and enter the time. We will send you a medal in the post.

Choose you distance

You can choose from a distance of 3k, 5k, 10k and 21k.

Run the distance

Run it on a road, woodland trail or a mixture of both, its entirely up to you. You can even do the distance on a treadmill if you wish.

Upload time / evidence

Once you have run it, upload your time on to athlinks optionally adding your run evidence link if you have one. All finishers will be awarded a custom designer lockdown medal which will posted to you or available for collection if more convenient.

Virtual Races are on the honor system. We figure if somebody is going to take the time to cheat, they’re going to cheat.
