Owing to the current pandemic and for a second year, the Rotary Clubs of Chelmsford Mildmay and Chelmsford Rivermead are replacing the Great Baddow Charity Races by organising a VIRTUAL 10 mile Road Race, (under UKA licence) and a VIRTUAL 2 mile Family Fun Run over the weekend of 22-23 May 2021.
Simply by downloading one of the free designated Apps, that will certify timing and gain entrants a free medal and certificate, runners will be able to compete on their own course locations.
It is important to remember these are charity races and this year the main beneficiaries are City of Chelmsford Mencap and PARC. All runners are welcome to gain sponsorship for their own charity and the Rotary organisers encourage a donation to their nominated charities as listed on the website www.baddowraces.co.uk where all information about the Virtual Races conditions and entry details can be located.
“We know that many runners would like the opportunity to run and also to raise money for charities which are currently hard pressed for funds. Going virtual is our way of supporting our loyal athletes and in consideration of the health and safety of both runners and volunteers.”
Run safely and good luck! In 2022 we will celebrate the 40th year of the Great Baddow Races.
back Our main fundraising event takes place in May. A 10 mile road race and a two mile fun run. Due to COVID-19 the Races will be VIRTUAL this year on 22-23 May. Check out the Races website below.
