A virtual 10K against Welsh Olympian and Healthspan Ambassador Iwan Thomas
The I Beat Iwan challenge was the first race of the R4W Virtual Challenge Series, a set of virtual events designed to provide a motivating incentive to train and race during the Coronavirus pandemic.
The virtual 10K race was inspired by the popular #ibeatiwan initiative which saw thousands of runners earn bragging rights by racing alongside Welsh Olympian and Healthspan Ambassador Iwan Thomas at the Barry Island 10K in 2018 and Healthspan Porthcawl 10K in 2019. The virtual race ran throughout August 2020.
Entry included a commemorative finishers medal, training advice from R4W partner Healthspan and the chance to run (virtually) with a Welsh Olympian!
