Missing a medal from a previous Christchurch 10km Series, day or night, and need to finish off your collection? Are you spending your days going on runs or walks and miss getting a glistening medal for your hard work?
We have medals from all the previous 10km Series events, there's organisations out there who need help and we want to help you keep active and healthy during Covid-19. So, the Virtual Fundraiser is here.
Sign up for $10 plus booking fee of 0.60c, choose your charity, do a 5km or 10km run or walk in your local area, and we put your medal aside ready for you to collect at the Forest Run Fest in Bottle Lake Forest. You need to complete your distance within 2 weeks of signing up.
You only need to complete the distance - and not the terrain due to Covid-19 restrictions at Level 4. If you are able to complete your distance on the correct terrain, all the better, but we acknowledge that you may not be able to do this at Level 3 or 4. If you are taking on a Night Series distance, please stay safe and make sure you use a head torch, maybe even convince someone from you bubble to go on a bubble run with you! Don't forget its all for charity and a lil bling dosen't hurt either!
When you register you will be able to select the medal you are after and choose your charity. If you want more than 1 you can select multiple medals, but, you need to do a 10km for each medal.
Strava or other confirmation of your run/walk is to be uploaded to your registration or sent to

Orana Wildlife Park is NZ’s only open range zoo that is home to over 70 species of endangered wildlife from NZ and the world, including NZ’s only Gorillas. Over 95% of our income is from visitor entry fees. During lockdown, like many organisations, we have no visitors and no income apart from the government’s partial wage subsidy.
Unlike many organisations, the high costs of maintaining the care and welfare of our 400 precious animals continues during lockdown. These costs are impossible to put on hold and include: enormous food bills (e.g. our lovely gorillas alone munch through $800 worth of vegetables every week), huge electricity bills to keep our animals warm in the cooler weather and essential veterinary costs.
