Sign up for our Virtual London 10k!

We're very excited to announce the SpecialEffect Virtual 'London' 10K on Sunday 5 July. Same date, same time and same distance as the official race would have been this summer - but run in your own neighbourhood, park or garden! It's free to sign up!

When news that this year's ASICS London 10K was being indefinitely postponed came through a couple of weeks ago, it hit us pretty hard. This event has been such a big part of our history for over ten years, we felt needed to find a way to still make it happen.

Just as we're finding new ways to continue our life-changing work through the lockdown, we've also been looking at ways to keep our challenge events going too! So now we're looking for 100 runners to join our 'Virtual Team SpecialEffect' and help keep the London 10K flame alive.

If you’re looking for a reason to start running or motivation to take your training to the next level, then this is the perfect excuse! We have big plans for the day itself, including pre- and post-race meet-ups and even the chance to claim a special edition finisher's medal! And of course, if you want to still run through your local streets dressed as your favourite games character, that is absolutely fine by us!

So what are you waiting for? Sign-up today and be part of something truly memorable this July, while at the same time helping SpecialEffect to keep levelling the playing field for gamers with disabilities.
