"We're all running. All the time. Just being alive is running. Even when we're standing still, every molecule, in creation, racing."

Whovian Running Club is thrilled to announce the fifth event of the 2020 season:

The Four K!

The Fourth Doctor is manic and wily, but with a firm sense of morality and boundless love for humankind. Irreverent and witty, his strategy in tense situations is often to diffuse them with a droll comment, or the offer of a jelly baby. The Bohemian adventurer, he's known throughout pop culture for his floppy hat, long coat, and ridiculously longer scarf. His googly-eyed grin captures both the genius and madness that makes him one of our absolute favorite incarnations.

Your registration includes this stellar 4" medal featuring some of the most iconic aspects of our merry madman, the Fourth Doctor! As with every WRC medal, all our registrants around the world also receive a beautiful custom sublimated ribbon, and your very own personalized digital bib!

"I can call K9 him if I want to. He's my dog. Aren't you, K9?"

Whovian Running Club is thrilled to announce the charity partner for our final event of 2020 is Daphne Legacy Tour!

Daphne Legacy Tour’s mission is to facilitate all aspects of the transportation of Galgos (Spanish Greyhounds) from Spain to the United States to adoptive, loving homes. The WRC considers it among our proudest accomplishments to have helped bring more than 100 Galgos home to their new families through its support of Daphne Legacy Tour. 

Now with the challenges of a global pandemic deterring international travel from the US to Spain, your support is more important than ever, as DLT is looking to bring on Spanish team members to assist from that side of the Atlantic!
 

"First things first, but not necessarily in that order."

1974 brought a famed British spy to the big screen, but that was also the year the Fourth Doctor sauntered onto the world's televisions sets...the "man with the golden grin", perhaps? Enjoy the timely mashup with The Four K official event shirt!

Available in multiple fabrics and styles from tees, to tanks, to hoodies, proceeds will also support Daphne Legacy Tour! 

"It may be irrational of me, but human beings are quite my favourite species."

Remember that this is a 'virtual' active event, so you can complete your four kilometer distance however, wherever and whenever you want! How? You can walk, run, skip, dance, or saunter. Where? You can do it around your neighborhood, on the treadmill, or on your favorite trail. When? You can do it on a Monday night, a Thursday morning, or a Saturday afternoon. It's all up to you!

For some extra fun, the optional 'run day' for the event is August 10: National "Spoil Your Dog" Day! If you want to join thousands of others around the world completing some or all of the distance on that day, you'll be in some tail-waggy, wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey company!

Registration closes at midnight on Sunday, August 16. Medals will ship the following week.

Let's earn ourselves a jelly baby, and go for a run!
