The Virtual Marathon Series are also offering two prizes;

1.    The first one is for the fastest time in fancy dress, become our Easter run world record holder

2.    Secondly, to the person who raises the most money for their chosen charity by Easter Day 

They will donate £250 to the charities chosen by the 2 winners and they will also receive a running goodies pack from the Virtual Marathon Series partner, RunThrough in the post.

To apply for the fastest runner you will need to enter your time through the Virtual Marathon Series portal and complete the 5K in fancy dress on Easter.
