I signed up for my first Virtual Run last week, a 5km run with racethedistance.com. It was fun and pretty straight forward!
The back story (or run objective) for this medal was short and sweet, run the 5km before the First Order catch you and get their hands on the map to Luke Skywalker’s whereabouts.
I took it at a very steady pace and chose to jog my 5km through Heaton Park and Jesmond Dene in Newcastle. The route followed the stream and took in the Armstrong Bridge and some farm animals.

For completing this race, I got a large and colourful BB8 medal, as well as a certificate! I also got the warm glow of satisfaction that comes with every medal. They even gave me a discount code for my next purchase with them so I might head on over tonight and sign up for their other Star Wars themed runs.
