Virtual Run: General Information

Welcome to a run/walk that anybody can participate in. Young or old, runner or casual walker. All we ask you to do is dedicate just 1 hour to run or walk and let us know the distance covered. Our goal is to rack up enough kilometers to complete a run around the earth. Every kilometer counts! No need to find your own sponsors or do any fundraising, you can just sign up, run/walk and report your kilometers.

Low starting fee: 100 SEK (≈10USD, 10EUR, 10CHF), 50 SEK for kids. Additional donations are always welcome.

Sign up individually or as a team, and help us make a difference. Join the general virtual run or any of our local events. Welcome!

You track your own distance during your hour's run, using any watch, app or other tool you want. You will get an email before the run with instructions on how to report your distance.

We are 100% volunteer powered. Except a small fee for handling the sign ups, every cent from sign up fees and donations goes towards ovarian cancer research. 

Kindly adhere to any local Covid-19 regulations regarding social distancing etc.

Please share your experience on social media, tag @lenawfoundation and #lenasrunforlife
