Year of the Fun Walk 2019—2019 Support Our Girls & You Are My Sunshine Virtual Runs (October)
My October fun runs for my Year of the Fun Walk 2019 were the 2019 Support Our Girls & You Are My Sunshine virtual runs.
The 2019 Support Our Girls virtual run was hosted by www.virtualrunevents.com. This run was their fifth annual Breast Cancer awareness themed virtual race—SUPPORT OUR GIRLS: Fight Like A Woman. There was the option of five distances in this run: 1 mile, 5km, 10km, 13.1 miles, and 26.2 miles, I chose to complete the 1 mile distance.
I completed the 1 mile (1.70km) distance in 19 minutes and 40 seconds. The entry fee of the race was donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The You Are My Sunshine virtual run was hosted by the Australian virtual run site, Heart and Soles running. The You Are My Sunshine virtual run raised money for Down Syndrome Australia and was unique as its distances symbolised the 3 copies of the 21st chromosome that causes Down Syndrome. Participants had the option of completing four different distances: 213km, 3x21km, 21.3km and 2.13km, I chose to complete the 2.13km distance and completed it in 25 minutes and 11 seconds.
