"I’m the Doctor. I’m a Time Lord. I’m from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. I’m 903 years old, and I’m the man who’s gonna save your lives and all six billion people on the planet below."

Whovian Running Club is chuffed to announce the fifth event of the 2021 season:

The Ten K!

Your registration includes this stellar 4" medal featuring the trenchcoat, the suit, the time, the glasses, the trainers, and the most expressive hair in the Universe! 

As with every WRC medal, participants around the world all receive a beautiful custom sublimated ribbon, and a personalized digital bib.

"The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You don’t just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand."

It warms our hearts to tell the world that our charity partner for the next Whovian Running Club event is Daphne Legacy Tour!

DLT facilitates all aspects of the transportation of Galgos (Spanish Greyhounds) from Spain to adoptive, loving homes in the United States.. While the breed remains unfamiliar to most Americans looking to adopt dogs, the creation of new Galgo families in the U.S. increases the awareness of their plight, and creates more forever homes for them in the future.

Our support of DLT will continue to help more of these gentle animals come home, where they can be loved and cherished.

"Bang! Rose Tyler, Martha Jones, Donna Noble, TARDIS! Shamble bobble dibble dooble. Oh, Doctor, you're so handsome. Yes, I am, thank you."

Calling the Tenth Doctor's era 'iconic' feels like an understatement, but when anyone sees the red trainers and 3-D glasses on The Ten K event shirt, there may not be a Whovian out there that won't immediately know who you're showing the love for. And might there be some hidden extras in the artwork? "Oh, yes!"

Available in multiple fabrics and styles from tees, to tanks, to long-sleeves, proceeds will also support the Daphne Legacy Tour.

"He's like fire and ice and rage; he's like the night and the storm in the heart of the sun. He's ancient and forever, he burns at the center of time, and can see the turn of the universe. And...he's wonderful."

Remember that this is a 'virtual' fitness event, so you can complete your ten kilometer distance however, wherever and whenever you want. How? You can run, walk, run, roll, row, dance, or wander. Where? You can do it around your neighborhood, on the TARDIS treadmill, or out on your favorite path. When? You can do it on a Monday night, a Thursday morning, or a Sunday afternoon. It's all up to you!

For some extra fun, the optional 'run day' for the event is "Dogust" 1st: the Universal Birthday for Shelter Dogs! If you'd like to join hundreds of others across Planet Earth completing some or all of the distance on that day, you'll be in some wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey company.

Registration closes at midnight on August 15. Medals ship on the honor system in the following week, so there's no need to report your distances to us. Just get out there and be brilliant!
