LADYBUG FOUNDATION

RAISING AWARENESS FOR NEUROFIBROMATOSIS

When is it taking place?


Running Bug's Virtual Run is taking place any part of the year.

How far should I run?

This is your race, so you choose how far you run. We recommend that you have a distance in mind, for example 1km, 5km, 10km, or more. Why not give yourself a challenge - something to work towards?

Should I take photographs?

Yes please! We would love to see them and share Virtual Run photos on our social media pages. You can either send them to us at l[email protected] or use the hashtag #rRunningBugsVirtualRun.


If you are recording your run on your phone, why not screenshot your distance and time too?

Can I get Sponsored?
