Beckbusters Virtual Races 20th September 2020

 Beck Busters 10K and Fun Run.


Normally at this time of year, The Beck Busters team would be busy preparing for our upcoming 10km and 2km fun run on September 20th by encouraging you all to enter, securing sponsorship and ordering medals, prizes and goodies ready for all of our competitors.

Due to the current social distancing restrictions, we are not going to be able to run the event as normal. This is a real blow financially to the school as over the last two years the Beck Busters race has raised much needed funds.

Not wanting to disappoint the many people who now regularly take part in the event, or the many of you that have taken up running over the last few months, we are pleased to announce that we are able to offer a Virtual !0km and a fun run this year. This way, we can still hopefully raise a little for school as well as continuing to promote the event ready to come back bigger and better next year.


Virtual 10km

Just sign up and run 10k by September 20th 2020. Record your run on your GPS app (such as Strava, Garmin, runkeeper etc) or take a picture of your treadmill stats or sports watch and send it into us at  You can run any route (of course, if you are local why not have a go at the Beck Busters route!) but please do observe the current social distancing rules at all times. As you will all be running different routes, there won’t be the traditional prizes this year, but why not use it as the opportunity to challenge yourself with a 10km PB.

£5 entry fee, and every competitor will receive a medal. There will also be spot prizes available to win which we will announce via our Facebook page.


Virtual Fun Run

This is open to all ages and for any distance that you find challenging to either run or walk. This could be 1k, the traditional 2k Beck Busters route or we know how some of you have been getting out during the past few months and could really challenge yourself with a 5k! If you have a means of recording your challenge, then email it into us at or send us some pictures. We would love to share some of these on our Facebook page so please do let us know if you would not like your picture to be shared. Again, the run needs to have taken place by 20th September 2020. It costs £5 to enter and you will receive a Beck Busters medal as well as the chance to win any spot prizes via our Facebook page.
