Friendship 100 KM Team Challenge
September 4th-12th, 2021
With the cancellation of both the Friendship Run for PCH and the Annual PCH/QEH Bedpan Trophy Relay in 2020, the PCH Foundation, in consultation with Dr. Michael Irvine and Sheila MacMurdo, proposed a new virtual event that could be held with social distancing in mind. The Friendship 100KM Team Challenge saw much of the team camaraderie and healthy competition from the Friendship Run and the Bedpan Relay without the crowded start or finish lines or the handing off of a baton. In 2020, we raised $11,000 for medical equipment at PCH and we know you can help us top that number in 2021!
This year we are working with Race Roster to make your run even easier! the site will allow you to quickly set up your own profile with your team to raise funds, submit your times and so much more.
Teams will assemble 10-20 people who will divide the 100km goal into increments of 5 or 10km, utilizing the well-known run routes of the Friendship Run. Runners must complete their solo 5 or 10 km continuously (in one run) between September 4th and 12th along the Friendship Run courses on the map provided. Please run your exact distance. Any extra distance will be removed based on your average distance/second. Once your run is complete, you are to take a screenshot of the app you are using and send it to runforPCH@gmail.com . The screenshot should include distance, time, GPS mapping of the route, and the date to qualify. Suggested apps -Strava, Garmin, Nike + Run Club, Map My Run (All are free downloads. Apps require data to use). Please ensure your submission includes your name and team name. Individual times will be compiled into a cumulative team time by race coordinators.
The team that completes the 100KM with the lowest recorded group time is declared the winner!
Runners are asked to gather pledges in support of medical equipment at Prince County Hospital using the pledge forms provided. The minimum pledge amount/entry fee is set at $25 per runner to take part in the event. Donors can also support runners on their personal pages at our Race Roster event page.
