RACE 2 - Friday 8 January 2021 - Monday 11 January 2021
RACE 3 - Friday 12 February 2021 - Monday 15 February 2021
UPDATED 4 DECEMBER:
WE HAVE REACHED OUR CAPACITY FOR MEDALS FOR THE SERIES - ANY ENTRIES FROM 4 DECEMBER WILL AUTOMATICALLY "ADOPT A TREE" INSTEAD OF RECEIVING A MEDAL.
1. What time frame do I have to complete each virtual event?
You have a long weekend for each event; anytime Friday to Monday of each of the event weekends.
2. Can I run any course?
Yes, you can run any route/course you choose (except down a mountain!) or on a running track.
3. Where & how do I upload my result?
This will all be done via your RaceNation account (which you'll set up when you enter). The RaceNation App makes it very easy to upload your results too.
Please follow instructions here depending on what platform you use.
4. Do I have to use Strava?
No, you can track your run on any device and upload the relevant URL or email us photo proof to email@example.com.
5. When will I receive my bobble hat?
With the medal for your first event
6. Will there be Series results/rankings/trophies?
Yes, your times from each event will be included in the overall series rankings if you do all three events.
5km/10km Series - there will be SERIES trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Male and Female overall and 1st V40, V50, V60 & V70 Male and Female in the 5km/10km.
2km Series - there will be SERIES trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd boy and girl overall as well as 1st 5 - 7, 8 - 11, 12 - 16 aged boy & girl.
No one wins more than one trophy - i.e. 1st Male doesn't also win 1st in age group, we like to share the love!
There will not be trophies for each individual event.
7. What is the minimum age for the events?
2km - 5 - 16 years
5km - 9 years +
10km - 16 years +
8. Is there an option to not have a medal?
Yes, there is. We understand for some runners a medal just doesn't do it for them.... So, we have partnered up with the National Forest and at point of entry you can chose the option to Dedicate a Tree rather than receive a medal.
"The Virtual Summer Series quite literally saved me from Lockdown as it gave me the motivation to get out and run to try and improve over the series. Thank you"

Just to say, I set no records with my monthly 10k, but while working at home with a busy job plus an energetic 18 month old off from nursery, signing up to the Dinton series meant at the absolute minimum, I ran 10K a month! Not a great way to do it, but it meant I at least ran this race as a minimum. The now nearly 2 year old is back at nursery and I'm trying to prioritise a healthy diet and regular running back into this 'new normal'.
So thank you for getting me out the house once a month!
Thank you for your continued effort to keep us ‘running’ as a community together!
I can only imagine how challenging this must be for the business at the moment so thank you for continuing to give us all the opportunity to compete and enjoy all the fantastic events you run.
