The Royal British Legion (RBL) is encouraging people to lace up their trainers this October and November to take part in its free to enter Virtual My Poppy Run to help support service and ex-service personnel and their families.

The RBL’s Poppy Run events are unable to go ahead in their usual format this year due to social distancing measures.

Instead, people can show their support for the 2020 Poppy Appeal with the virtual version.

The My Poppy Run participants can choose to run, jog or walk a distance of their choice and get family, friends and pets involved too.

Wherever and whenever runners choose to do their Poppy Run, from the treadmill to local park, they will be helping to transform and support the lives of many in the armed forces community, raising vital funds to ensure that those who have served are offered the life-changing support they deserve.

Sharon Wells, events partnerships manager for the RBL, said; “My Poppy Run is a fantastic way for people to show their support for The Royal British Legion and have some fun with family and friends at the same time.

"Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic has created huge challenges for the Legion, as we approach our 99th Poppy Appeal, there will be more ways than ever for people to show their support.”

My Poppy Run can be completed any time between October 1 and November 30 and is free to enter.
