More Virtual Running Medals

The brother of a work colleague set up Run for the World, where medals were available if you ran a certain distance (read about my previous blog here). When the company was started, it wasn’t uncommon for there to be only a dozen people ‘racing’ for each medal. However, during lock down, virtual running has come into it’s own, with over 200 people for some of the more popular medals.

A year ago I joined a couple of multi-medal challenges, which I have only just finished. The first was to run 400km every three months, or each season, for the very nice set of jigsaw style medals seen below.

The other challenge was to run 100km every month with each medal representing a different Wonder of the World; Grand Canyon, Rainbow Mountain, etc. Again the medals were in a jigsaw style, which was a little harder to put together than the four seasons challenge. This bling was also very nice.

Both of these sets of medals are still available if you want them. Currently there is a continents set of medals, which I have Europe so far. Some of their other medals are a bit naff, in my opinion, which is why I am selective with which medals I go for.

Anyway, they can be found here if you’re after some nice lock down bling.
