Race overview

Welcome to our website for the Virtual Total North Lincolnshire Half Marathon & 5k 2020. We really hope that you will support this exciting and unique Virtual Event.

We have held this race as a live event since 2012 and it has been hugely successful. Due to Covid-19 this years race had already been postponed from May to August, we have now decided the safest way to host this years event is an exciting and unique Virtual Race.  We have already taken delivery of some fabulous medals, ordered the T-shirts and engraved the Trophies, so would welcome the opportunity to forge a fabulous unique virtual event with you all to celebrate its 9th year as we fight this virus.

This Virtual Race is for EVERY ability, you can run, jog or walk the distances, this can be in one go or if you wish in small chunks. If you are missing competing this is also right up your street, we will have results and also be posting out prizes…..so yes you CAN still race and compete against others! (to win a prize the distance has to done on one go)

We are very grateful to all our Sponsors especially TOTAL who have continued to support us to make the virtual event possible.

#RunTogetherApart
We know it’s a difficult time for everyone at the moment in many ways, our thoughts are with those that have lost love ones as a result of the virus. As a small business here at Tape2Tape we have been greatly affected by the virus, we are trying to remain positive and are still committed to uniting, motivating and inspiring the running community. We also believe that by keeping you all moving this will greatly help with your mental health and physical well-being. We’d also like to continue supporting the regular community groups and charities that come out year on year to support this event.

HOW THE UNIQUE VIRTUAL RACE WILL WORK
To give you the full race experience we will:

> Post you out the fabulous EVENT MEDAL, EVENT T-SHIRT & RUNNING NUMBER – you will receive this before the 16th August. (the medal hosts the original 2020 race date)
> Virtually start the race at 9am on Sunday 16th August with a fully erected arch (at a location!) we’ll sound the horn to kick start the event!
> Give you until the 31st August to run the distance and register your times – (you can run, walk or jog the distance all at once, or in small chunks)
> Enable you to submit your results manually or via a DIRECT LINK from STRAVA OR GARMIN CONNECT
> Have an extensive PRIZE POOL – Trophies will be posted out to all the winners (Yes you can still compete!!)
> Enable you to print off a personalised certificate with your accomplishment and finish time
> Publish a full set of RESULTS
> Continue to support our regular community groups and charities that come along to this event year on year
> Bring you altogether virtually and share your endeavours on our social media platforms
> Hand out spot prizes for the best pictures wearing your race tee and running number

Presently 6 people can meet up to exercise together if they are socially distanced, this would be a great way of taking part in the event and supporting each other.

Tape2Tape is made up of Nicola and Neil, a small team of fantastic people who work with us in the run up to our events, plus the amazing race crew volunteers in their thousands who make things happen on the day at the events.

As keen runners ourselves we initially set set up Tape2Tape as a hobby back in 2011 to organise safe and enjoyable races that involved the community. As time progressed we loved what we did so much that it is now our job. We feel proud that we have managed to inspire and motivate many people to lace up their running shoes, not only improving their health and fitness but also their mental health and well-being. We are proud to have raised and donated thousands of pounds to local community groups, charities and causes, we feel so honoured that our daily work involves our passion for running.

When Covid-19 hit in March it brought misery to many people all over the world, misery in ways which we could not ever have imagined. As the situation starts to improve we sincerely hope that the suffering of many also reduces.

From our perspective our income and livelihood stopped overnight once the pandemic hit. This is why we will always be so grateful to Total and our other sponsors who have stuck with us in support of this virtual race, also you as our runners, for entering the virtual race. Without this Tape2Tape would cease to exist and we would not be in a position to put on super races for you once we are out the other side.

Thank you to you all, please stay safe and enjoy taking part in the virtual race.

FAQs

  • When will I receive my medal/tee shirt

    #RunTogetherApart These will be with you prior to 16th August.

  • How do I upload my results?

    #RunTogetherApart You can do this manually or via a direct link to Strava or Garmin Connect Full details can be found HERE

  • Public liability insurance

    This has been obtained through Run Britain

  • Medal design

    #RunTogetherApart The medals are fantastic and have a different ribbon for each distance. We had to order these in February in readiness for the race which was due to take part in early May, before being postponed to August. The medal has the May date on, but really does not detract from it looking amazing. We feel sure given the thousands of pounds we spent on the medals that it was absolutely not practical nor environmentally friendly to dispose of them just for a date.

  • Can I transfer my virtual place to another runner?

    Yes you can transfer your virtual place to another runner. Deadline 8am 6th July Please follow these INSTRUCTIONS

  • Can I run the established race route

    We do not recommend this on the grounds of safety. For the actual race itself we have extensive road closures in place to keep runners safe. In our view it is dangerous to attempt to run the route with the benefit of road closures.

  • I need to update something in Results base such as my address or tee shirt size.

    You can easily do this yourself. Please see HERE

  • Prize eligibility

    You are only eligible for prizes if you have completed your chosen distance in one go and not over multiple runs.
