I’ve been rerunning season 2 of Zombies, Run! ahead of the April virtual race. Running along trains, heading off bandits and keeping Able safe has been fun to experience again.
Following in the footsteps of the hugely popular Run the Solar System, Run to the Deep is a 10k ‘virtual race’ which involves journeying from the sea surface to the bottom of the ocean– accompanied by music and audio commentary from explorer Pierre-Yves Cousteau, son of the famous marine conservationist Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Discover mysterious creatures, amazing seascapes, and explore alien environments as you run down to the depths of the ocean.
My running today wasn’t as strong as I might have liked, but it was fun. I made the mistake of ending my run at Dartmouth Crossing, a hideously anti-pedestrian shopping zone, so there was a lot of stopping and starting at poorly designed traffic lights.
The race is free to enter and is running from March 9th until March 18, 2018.
This morning I ran Racelink (Six to Start) and the British Science Association‘s Run the Solar System virtual 10k. It scaled down the solar system to the 10 km length of the run so that as distances were reached new facts and comments were shared about each planet passed between the sun and Neptune. Like the other Six to Start virtual races I’ve done (Zombies, Run!’s 5 virtual races) it was an engaging audio experience.
Run the Solar System is a 10k ‘virtual race’ which involves journeying across the Solar System from the Sun to Neptune in just 10 kilometres, accompanied by music and audio commentary from science broadcaster Dallas Campbell.
This virtual race was first created for British Science Week 2017 (10-19 March) and is supported by Yakult UK. Now, due to the race’s huge success, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve reopened it. You can download the app and take part wherever you like, whenever you like, with no time limit!
The virtual race will be available to run until June 20, 2018, and I recommend you take advantage of the free entry.
My pace was a bit slower than I would have hoped, but overall I’m happy to have run 10 km in under an hour.
I had another run with a steady pace this afternoon. I’m hoping to line up a string of virtual races in the next few months, so I am planning to make daily runs a priority.
I had my most consistent pace of the year for my run this afternoon. I’m hoping to get below 5 by the time I do my next virtual race.
