Ely Runfest

Date: 27/09/2020

Location: Palace Green, Ely

Website: link

Given the current climate and restrictions on mass gatherings, it is unlikely we will be able to host the RunFest in the usual format. Therefore, for 2020 we are opening the RunFest as a virtual endeavour.

Distance options are: 2k, 5K, 10k, Half Marathon, Marathon, Ultra Marathon 70k

Ultra Marathon 70k

Note: Not to be completed as a single activity. To be completed as an accumulated distance. Evidence submission: Maximum 42.2km per activity, and up to a maximum of 8 activities.

When: Complete your distance within the month of September (1st – 30th)

Evidence: Submit your evidence using Strava, Garmin, Map my Run or similar. Either by sharing your race URL from your tracker or by uploading a screenshot of your completed race. This can be done in your user profile on Total Race Timing. Guidance for this will be given below.

Cost: £10 (all distances)

Number of places: 300

Age limits:

Under 8: 2k max
2k: 9 and over
5k: 11 and over
10k: 15 and over
HM: 17 and over
Marathon: 18 and over
Ultra: 20 and over

Participants under 18 must be registered by an adult.

The Reward: firstly, that warm, fuzzy feeling of accomplishment. But it is also all about the BLING!

Earn ones of these sparkly ETC medals (above), plus a certificate of completion outlining your achieved distance.

The boring bit: Runners undertake their virtual distance at their own risk. ETC will not take responsibility for any accidents or injuries sustained from participation in this virtual event. You should be sufficiently fit and physically healthy enough to complete the race distance chosen unaided. If in doubt, please seek medical advice. You may run, run/walk or walk the distance. Your chosen distance must be completed in one session unless you are participating in the Ultra.

Ultra Marathon: Participants will need to record each leg of their run and submit the links for all the completed legs at the end of the event, as evidence of the accumulated distance.

By entering your chosen distance, you are confirming your acceptance of these terms and waiver you right to claim against Ely Tri Club in the event on an accident.

All participants will be required to submit evidence of completion by 1st October to qualify for your reward. The run can be completed at any location, but you must adhere to relevant Government guidelines at the time of your participation.

Please use common sense when selecting your run route. We would suggest that you run in a park, along footpaths or trails, away from road traffic where at all possible.

We advise that all participants under the age of 11 be accompanied by an adult.

All race entry fees are non-refundable, and cannot be deferred towards a future race.

Already entered? - you may participate in the virtual race and we will refund you the difference, or a full refund can be given. We are unable to defer places to the 2021 event on this occasion.

Find us and follow us on Instagram, virtual_elyrunfest_2020 and share photos and your success with all the other entrants, local sports clubs, and friends of Ely RunFest. Good luck everyone and enjoy.

Entries are non-refundable and unfortunately cannot be deferred but transfers are available until midnight on 19/09/2020. Login to transfer your entry.
