Sportsvendo has announced the launch of the Justice League Virtual Run series in South Africa with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment.
Every month from July to November, South Africans can run or walk from their homes in the first-ever DC Super Hero Virtual Runs, starting with the “Superman Virtual Run”. Each month will see another Super Hero take the lead – the “Wonder Woman Virtual Run” in August, celebrating Woman’s Day, followed by the “Aquaman Virtual Run” in September, the “Batman Virtual Run” in October, and the series will finish off with “The Flash Virtual Run” in November.
Participants are encouraged to maintain social distancing.
Organisers have limited the entries for the first event, the Superman Virtual Run, to 20 000 places nationwide.
They are also partnering with institutions and making contributions to beneficiaries such as Headstart Kids (providing food packs and nutritional support to children aged six months to five years). Their target is to aid in the distribution of 150,000 meals and/or nutritional support over the remainder of the year.
Super Hero kits (themed to the respective Super Hero per run) will be couriered to all entrants, containing (using the first run as an example):
- Collectors edition Superman medal
- Limited edition Superman t-shirt
- Limited edition Superman button badge
- A special personalised certificate will be issued to those entering all five runs simultaneously.
The 2020 Justice League Virtual Run Series will take place as follows:
Sunday, 19 July: Superman Run
Sunday, 9 August: Wonder Woman Run
Sunday, 6 September: Aquaman Run
Sunday, 4 October: Batman Run
Sunday, 8 November: The Flash Run
