In an exciting addition to the series of 5km Poppy Runs British Military Fitness & The Royal British Legion are hosting this month, a special Virtual Poppy Run has been launched to cater for anyone and everyone who wants to fundraise for a good cause but doesn’t have a participating Poppy Run park nearby.

The brand new Virtual Poppy Run offers a unique opportunity for everyone of all ages, to get up and do their bit this November to fundraise for the Royal British Legion – be it on the treadmill, walking the dog or running in a group at the park. Now everyone can be involved – there’s really no excuse!  Sign up now for £10 to join thousands of Poppy Runners walking, jogging or running 5km throughout November, and the UK’s undisputed leader in outdoor fitness, British Military Fitness (BMF) will send you a congratulatory medal and T-shirt in the post to commemorate your achievement.

Harry Sowerby, Managing Director at British Military Fitness, commented:“We are looking forward to seeing our newest partnership with The Royal British Legion get underway for both the Poppy Run and Vitrual Poppy Run. It’s a charity so close to our hearts as a brand, and also to our 400+ instructors across the country who are ex or serving military, many of whom have been supported in the past by the charity.

“The Poppy Run is a really great way for the whole family, of all ages and fitness levels, to get together to raise awareness and funds for what is such an incredibly important charity for all of us at BMF.”

Claire Rowcliffe, Director of Fundraising at The Royal British Legion said:We are delighted to be working with British Military Fitness and the Poppy Run. We’re grateful to all those fundraising for the Legion and this will help members of the Armed Forces community, from Serving personnel, veterans and their families live on to a more hopeful future.”
