MORE medals have been released following the success of the Hope House Virtual 10K throughout lockdown.

Since June many Hope House supporters from Oswestry have been running to raise money to in aid of the charity which helps and supports seriously ill children and their families.

The virtual running idea was set up in response to the cancellation of various running events across the country as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Lynsey Kilvert, fundraising team leader, was pleased with the participation levels in the event, and as a result, more medals are available for those looking to complete 10k in aid of the charity.

She said: “With scheduled running events being cancelled due to Covid-19, we decided to set up our Virtual 10K so people who were planning to run races locally, as well as up and down the country, could still take part in an event while also raising vital funds.

“The take up was great, and therefore we have decided to release some more medals and allow more of our supporters to run.”

Registrations are open with a minimum donation of £20 for people to take part and receive their medal.

Each runner who raises a minimum of £100 will also receive a limited edition Hope House & Ty Gobaith running vest.

“We only have a limited number of medals, so if you’re wanting to run 10K for Hope House this summer then please do sign up quickly because when the medals are gone, they’re gone,” added Lynsey.

“Good luck to all of those who sign up, and thank you for your support.”

People can sign up for the Virtual 10K at or through the Hope House and Ty Gobaith Facebook Page.
