Hogwarts Running Club is pleased to announce our fourth event of 2015: The Dept of Mysteries 6.2442! Why 6.2442? Because if you dial that number on a phone, it spells "MAGIC!" And, 6.2442 miles is just few meters longer than a 10k.
All participants will receive a one-of-a-kind 3" medal which features the iconic red telephone box (the visitor's entrance to the Ministry of Magic) and blue, transparent epoxy for the prophecy crystal ball. All HRC medals feature a top-of-the-line custom sublimated ribbon and every participant will receive a personalized digital bib via email with their own name/nickname and number. In honor of the prophesy of the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord, we are asking as many participants as possible to complete their 6.2442 miles on July 31st...Harry Potter's Birthday!
All proceeds from this event will go to support Brotherhood Ride, a Florida-based group of firefighters, police officers and EMTs who ride bicycles to honor those who have died in the line of duty. They ride hundreds of miles on or near the anniversary of their ultimate sacrifice to remind the families, friends, and the community of the fallen that they are not forgotten. Finally, the proceeds of this event will be donated by the Brotherhood Ride directly to the families of those firefighters, police officers, and EMTs who gave their lives to protect others.
Event details and schedule
Since, this is a virtual race, it can be run at any location at any time at any pace. You can walk, use the treadmill, run outside or you can participate in another "real-world" race. It's completely up to you! You can run your race at your own pace wherever and whenever you like.
That said, we encourage as many people as possible to save thier 6.2442 miles (or the last portion if you're breaking up the distance) for Harry's birthday on July 31st. Hundreds of runners, all over the world, running on the same day for a great cause!
No "proof" of your time or completion is required, but you are more than welcome to post selfies of you with your bib to the event page on Facebook and on your personal page after you've completed your distance so you can get the congratulations you deserve!
