“Everyday life can provide honour and valour, and let’s hope that from now on, this country can find its heroes in smaller places.”
Whovian Running Club is pleased to present the fourth event of the 2020 season:
Human Nature 10k!
Evading one of the most dangerous adversaries in the Universe, the Tenth Doctor used the Chameleon Arch to lock away his own identity in a simple object, hiding himself as a human professor in 1913. The heart wrenching and yet terrifying story has become one of our favorites, so we had to pay tribute to it this season!
Your registration includes this beautiful 4″ medal resembling the mysterious fob watch that contained the Tenth Doctor’s memories. As with every WRC medal, all registrants also receive the beautiful custom sublimated ribbon, and the always-popular personalized digital bib!
NOTICE: This event has SOLD OUT completely! UNLIMITED registrations will be made available again in September for our Timey Wimey year-end celebration event!
“My father Sidney was a watchmaker from Nottingham, and my mother Verity was, er. Well, she was a nurse, actually.”
At this time of global pandemic, our world is focused on its health. The fight for safety and well-being touches us all, and impacts our lives in ways we likely couldn’t have imagined. And among the heroes we cherish and to whom we owe so much, are our nurses.
Our charity partner for the fourth WRC event of 2020 is Nurses House!
Since 1924, Nurses House has provided short-term financial assistance to nurses in need as a result of illness, injury, or disability. And while it is often difficult for nurses to ask for help in their hour of need, they who live their lives giving “little unremembered acts of kindness and love” deserve extra special care.
Our support of Nurses House will help fund grants for their COVID-19 response fund, which directly assists RNs, LPNs and LVNs who are unable to work due to a COVID-19 infection, caring for a family member with COVID-19, or are under employer mandated quarantine.
“I sometimes think how magical life would be if stories like this were true.”
The Doctor’s human persona kept a journal of extraordinary things, but you’re taking an extraordinary journey on the path to personal health and fitness! Commemorate it with the official Human Nature 10k event shirt.
Available in multiple fabrics and styles from tees, to tanks, to hoodies, proceeds will also support Nurses House!
“Sometimes when you look in his eyes you know, you just know that there’s something else in there. Something hidden. Right behind the eyes, something hidden away in the dark.”
Remember that this is a ‘virtual’ active event, so you can complete your ten kilometer distance however, wherever and whenever you want! How? You can walk, run, skip, dance, or saunter. Where? You can do it around your neighborhood, at the park, on the treadmill, or on your favorite trail. When? You can do it on a Monday night, a Thursday morning, or a Saturday afternoon. It’s all up to you!
For some extra fun, the optional ‘run day’ for the event is June 21: National Selfie Day! (What better day to show off a post-run sweaty selfie? 😆 ) If you want to join hundreds of others around the world completing some or all of the distance on that day, you’ll be in some wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey company!
Registration closes at midnight on July 5. Medals will ship out the following week.
