Norwich School company 'Velocitas' creates virtual 5k race for Priscilla Bacon Hospice

05 May 2020

Are you missing your local Park Run? Or want to test your 5K time and receive a medal? Members of Norwich School company ‘Velocitas’, one of the school’s Young Chamber groups, have been working in collaboration with local Running Club, Norwich Road Runners and the Priscilla Bacon Hospice charity to create a virtual road race, all for a brilliant cause.

RACE FROM YOUR PLACE VIRTUAL 5K RACE asks people to donate £10 so they can individually take part in a 5K run from their home between 13th and 31st May, with all proceeds going to the hospice appeal. All runners will receive a medal, certificate and the chance to top the leader board!

Pupils will be managing all aspects of the race including marketing (Olivia White U5 produced this flier), validating and producing results (including an in-house school version) and sending out the race medals and certificates.   

Before the start date of the race, pupils will email a race number to entrants, which can be printed and worn on your individual race day.  Why not wear your school /house colours then send us a picture of you starting or finishing your race?

To find out more, full details can be found on the flyer below or via the Race booking site; https://totalracetiming.co.uk/race/221
