Whovian Running Club continues our 2019 season of incredible and otherworldly places with: 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐫 𝟔𝐤!
The seat of power at the center of the mighty Sontaran Empire. The cradle from which thousands of the Universe’s fiercest and most fearless clone warriors emerged. The planetary origin of our favorite merciless battle potato!
We would never question the honor of going into glorious battle “open skinned”, but like any good infantry, we suggest you take your helmet with you. All participants will get this amazing 3″ medal featuring the iconic Sontaran battle helmet. As with all WRC medals, it comes with the custom satin ribbon and a personalized digital bib!

Whovian Running Club is thrilled to announce that our charity partner for this event is Turtle Conservancy! Turtle Conservancy is dedicated to protecting threatened turtles and tortoises and their habitats worldwide.
The Geometric Tortoise is one of the most imperiled tortoise species in the world. Originally widespread in the fynbos habitat of the Western Cape province of South Africa, near-complete conversion of this habitat to vineyards, orchards and wheat monocultures has decimated the population. In 2015, the Turtle Conservancy purchased one of the largest remaining fynbos habitat patches where the tortoise still thrives, forming the Geometric Tortoise Ecosystem Preserve. This preserve contains 80% of the remaining Geometric Tortoises on the planet! The Turtle Conservancy was recently made aware that the owner of an adjacent 34 hectare farm including fynbos habitat intends to plow this land, and irreversibly destroy its biodiversity value.
This is where WRC comes in: we’re going to help raise funds to help purchase this land, and preserve it for the Geometric Tortoise!
