“I’m sorry. I am so, so sorry. But you’ve got two shadows.”


Whovian Running Club is thrilled to announce the second event of the 2021 season:

Two Shadows 10k! 💀

Your registration includes this stellar 3.5″ medal featuring the horrific demise of poor ‘Other Dave’ as a result of the terrifying Vashta Nerada!

As with every WRC medal, all our registrants around the world also receive a beautiful custom sublimated ribbon, and your very own personalized digital bib!

“It’s what’s in the dark. It’s what’s always in the dark. Lights! That’s what we need, lights. You got lights?”


We’re so pleased to tell the world that our charity partner for the next Whovian Running Club event is Unite to Light!

This amazing nonprofit organization is dedicated to providing low-cost solar light and power to those without electricity across the globe.

Our support of Unite to Light will help fund their most critical and impactful programs: education; disaster response; midwives and global health; and local health for the homeless.

“Hey, who turned out the lights?”


It’s one of the most immediately recognizable phrases — and chilling images — from the entire Doctor Who program. Test the resolve of anyone seeing you wearing the official Two Shadows 10k event shirt, complete with the never-ending question that haunts Whovians everywhere!

Available in multiple fabrics and styles from tees, to tanks, to hoodies, proceeds will also support Unite to Light!

“Daleks: aim for the eyestalk. Sontarans: back of the neck. Vashta Nerada? Run. Just run.”


Remember that this is a ‘virtual’ fitness 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, on the treadmill, or on your favorite trail. When? You can do it on a Monday night, a Thursday morning, or a Sunday afternoon. It’s all up to you!

For some extra fun, the optional ‘run day’ for the event is March 31: World Backup Day! If you’d like to join hundreds of others across Planet Earth completing some or all of the distance on that day, you’ll be in some wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey, Donna-Noble-has-been-saved company!

Registration closes at midnight on Sunday, April 12. Medals will ship on the honor system the following week; there’s no need to report your distances to us. Just get out there and be amazing!

Don’t take time to look down and count the shadows…just sign up and run!
