A CENTRE which provides specialist therapy for children is holding a running event throughout the month of April.

The Movement Centre at Gobowen’s Orthopaedic hospital will be giving people the chance to pick up a medal by taking part in Monty’s Virtual Running event.

Those wishing to pick up a medal need to run, jog or walk 5k at any point during the month.

Virtual running works exactly the same as any other type of running event, but the difference is that a virtual race can be run at any location, at any pace, inside on a treadmill or outside on road or trail.

To enter the challenge, runners must provide evidence that they have completed 5k by sending The Movement Centre a screenshot of their activity.

This can be done with a picture of their activity watch or screenshot of a phone running app.

A spokesman for the centre said: “We would love people to join us for our first virtual run.

“Runners will get some extra special medal bling while supporting a local charity.”

Once participants have completed their 5k run, jog or walk they must send proof of completion and address to curtis@themovementcentre.co.uk to receive their medal.
