Chesterfield Half Marathon – virtual events
Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon Virtual events
The Redbrik Half was cancelled due to Covid-19 creating safety concerns, with the brand-new Redbrik Foundation Chesterfield 10k replacing the event from 2021. A range of Virtual events have now been confirmed for the original event weekend of 16th to 18th October.
Runners will still have an opportunity to claim a 2020 Redbrik Chesterfield Half Marathon medal, with participants invited to run a Half Marathon, Five Mile or 10k distance before publishing post-run pictures and/or times on the page’s Virtual Events Facebook page, or tagging the event on Instagram and/or Twitter.
Runners who have not entered either event but want to claim a Virtual Event medal can also enter online for a small fee, with details to be announced soon.
With the Redbrik Half Marathon’s charity partners – Ashgate Hospicecare and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice – due to miss out on funds pledged by those running this year’s Half Marathon events, organisers have encouraged Virtual Event participants to raise funds for good causes which would ordinarily have received tens of thousands of pounds in donations.
John Timms, Event Director said: “We’re really looking forward to seeing people take to the streets safely for the Redbrik Half Marathon’s Virtual Events weekend.”
