Hilly Helmet 2021
After much deliberation, we’d like to announce our plans for Hilly Helmet 2021.
As you all know, our objective in addition to providing a unique fun night for all our running friends is to help raise money for Brain Tumour Support and we hope you will help us support them again for the 5th year.
After converting to a virtual event last year, we were fantastically warmed by the response from everybody who still signed up and took part and alongside our event partners, enabled us to make another healthy donation of over £2500 to Brain Tumour Support for which we can’t thank you enough.
All charities were hit very hard in 2020, with Brain Tumour Support having to move to smaller premises and really scale their service down just to survive as a charity, so once again we’d like to raise as much as we possibly can through our event again this year to help them continue to offer their service to all those whos’ lives are affected by a brain tumour diagnosis.
With mass participation events still being cancelled or put back to later in the year, we’re going to set up as a virtual event once again for 2021 and hope you’ll support us by taking part. If circumstances allow, we’re hoping there may yet be a chance for an event on the night if current world events ease enough in time for us to do so, but at this stage the main focus will be on the virtual event.
Entry fees will be held at 2020 prices and once again we’re offering a family ticket (two adults and two under14s) and junior entries so the whole family can once again get involved and we’re looking forward to seeing the imagination and enthusiasm that goes into the headgear for our event once again this year.
We’ve some exciting news we’re hoping to announce very soon as well. We’re currently in talks with a company with a view to them providing hosting for your run times and downloadable run number bibs for you to print off and wear on your virtual run this year. Once we’ve sorted the detail, we’ll let you know more. As usual, every finisher will receive a pottery memento PLUS, if it’s your 5th Hilly Helmet you’ll be receiving a special extra gift to mark that too.
To many charities, events like ours are lifeblood which is why we have decided to offer another virtual event this year. We hope you’ll support us once again and that 2022 brings us all an opportunity to run together once again.
