Together We Run 2020 – The Virtual 2,000 Mile Challenge

Date: Monday 14 September - Sunday 20 September

Location: Wherever you are!

Run or walk 2,000 miles and celebrate 20 years of saving lives, together. 

“2,000 miles? Are you sure?” – we hear you ask.

We know 2,000 miles is a long distance to accomplish on your own but we’re in this together. So simply pledge the distance you hope to achieve and as one big team, we will reach it! 

Whether it’s a 6 or 10 mile run, or a 24 mile trek, every mile you complete will go towards the overall target of 2,000 miles. Sign up today and support East Anglian Air Ambulance!

Join an EAAA team! 

Before you set off to complete your chosen distance, we’ll assign you to a team, with your very own team captain from the EAAA crew. Keep your eyes peeled on our social channels to find out who our EAAA crew team captains are.

Once you are signed up you can join the official Strava club here: www.strava.com/clubs/togetherwerun

  • T-EAAA-M points are awarded for reaching your pledged goal, whatever it may be
  • T-EAAA-M points are awarded for every extra mile completed beyond your pledge
  • T-EAAA-M points are awarded for every £1 raised for EAAA on JustGiving

The stats

From our calculations, to complete a collective distance of 2,000 miles, it would require on average:

  • 100 people to walk or run 20 miles
  • 200 people to walk or run 10 miles
  • 400 people to walk or run 5 miles

Every mile counts! But, who will lead their team to victory? Well, that's up to you to decide!

Sign Up Now

Make sure you sign up for your place in our challenge via Eventbrite before Monday 7th September 2020. You can choose the standard ticket option and only receive a medal if you reach £30 in fundraising, or you can choose the Golden Ticket option if you would like to receive your medal automatically for taking part in this mammoth challenge. Also, why not celebrate the first ever Together We Run event and EAAA’s 20th Anniversary by purchasing a limited edition running vest!

When you sign up, you’ll need to let us know how many miles you wish to pledge and aim to complete. No amount is too big or too small, every mile counts and will go towards the overall 2000 mile team target!

Once you have secured your place it will be time to get those walking/running shoes on and start your training and fundraising! We would highly encourage you to join the official Strava club by visiting www.strava.com/clubs/togetherwerun, so that you can meet other teammates and keep a close eye on that leader board. The app is free to download, all you need to do is sign up (if you haven’t done so already)! You can also set up a JustGiving page here to spread the news about your challenge and encourage friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you!

And then, (technology is a wonderful thing) you can link your JustGiving and Strava accounts together so your supporters can watch those miles clock up! Amazing!

Now the fun really starts (we know you’re already excited, but it’s about to get a whole lot more fun)... shortly after you’ve signed up, you’ll be allocated into one of two teams and we’ll assign you a Crew Captain. Your Crew Captains are there to guide you and provide you with their pearls of wisdom and motivational pep talks in the run up to event week. Although both teams will be reliant on each other to complete the overall 2000 mile target together, each individual team will be competing against each other to earn points for a bit of healthy competition. There will be more information to follow about how you can earn points for your team, with prizes up for grabs for the champions!
