The Mad March Hare launch their 2021 event which will be a virtual event this
The annual event started in 2008 and has raised over £123,500 for Breast Cancer
Now. The event will take place throughout March and participants can sign up and
complete the event virtually.
If you are looking for a challenge for 2021 then you can sign up now.
Event organiser Margaret Nicholson said ‘This year will be very different for us but we
have been offering virtual runs for the past few years and have always had great support
from around the world with people taking part from as far away as Australia. We are
looking forward to another fantastic event this March. This year we can reach far more
people with their challenge to complete the 5k or 10k distance by walking, jogging or
running to raise money for Breast Cancer Now’.
Breast Cancer Now, as with all charities, have been hit by the impact of Covid 19 and the
local support of Swindon and national support is needed now more than ever before.
Mad March Hare volunteer Esther Newman said, ‘as a past participant of the event the
virtual event is a great way to include more people, challenging people to maintain their
fitness and get out of the house in the fresh air has never been more important. Not only
is it a great way to keep physically active it is also good for our mental health too.
I would encourage people to take advantage of our Bubble offer for £60 and sign up as a
group of 6 and get the whole family involved. The last year has been difficult for
everyone and we hope this year people come out and support us, get dressed up, take
the children out and complete the virtual event. Having a goal is always a good
motivation to keep active and all participants will receive a finisher medal. Participants
can also join our Strava team to upload their evidence.’
Mad March Hare have always been extremely proud of its promise to make sure 100% of
your registration fee goes directly to the charity and this year is the same.
