Blesma are delighted to launch our inaugural Remembrance 11K, a Blesma fundraising event, which will both commemorate  the significant day of Remembrance  and raise vital funds for our limbless and injured veterans.

Our 11K event brings together the community of Blesma supporters creating a communal feel that there are hundreds of other supporters taking part in the event in their local parks and neighbourhoods across all regions of the country, uniting everyone connected to Blesma on a this very important day.

From  08.30 on Sunday 8th November 2020, you may join the Blesma team at this inaugural event which will see the Blesma community come together to complete  11K in Remembrance of the fallen, and those who came home injured. We will be streaming the live invitational event from our head office in Chelmsford on Sunday 8th November from 8.30am, so you can join us virtually for a live warm up led by a local personal trainer and experience the pre-race build up.  Post-race we will also be streaming the two minutes silence which we invite you to observe with us.

Track your 11K

To track your run you will need to set up a Blesma fundraising page. There is no obligation to fundraise, this is just to help track the distance. After you have completed the fundraising page set up, you can link your Strava account to your registration (you will have this option when you sign up). You will need to link your Strava account in order to verifiy your 11K and so we can send your finishers pack. If you don't already have Strava, it is free to download from the Apple or Android app store.

How to take part?

Click on the registration button to sign up for this event. There is a £25 registration fee payable when you sign up and no minimum fundraising amount.

Participants will receive a special Blesma finisher’s pack which will include our Remembrance Day 11K medal and a Blesma buff. Please note before we send these out, we will require verification from Strava of your 11K, which should be automatically sent to us if you have linked your Strava account during your registration. We are here to assist if you have any difficulty with linking the accounts.
