We are #OneHRC and together we do #somuchgood! In celebration of our unity, we offer you the largest, most amazing medal ever...correction...it's FOUR medals! The four separate 3" house medals connect via magnets to form one HUGE 6" x 6" medal with the OneHRC "keystone" in the middle...which can be used as a keychain!
Yes. It is a marathon. No. You don't have to run/walk it at once. In fact, we've deliberately made it four separate events: 5k, 6k, 10k, and 21k. Add them together and they equal 42k...or a FULL MARATHON! And since these are virtual runs, you can break up those distances to make them more manageable. It's your race...at your pace...at your place!
In honor of our four HRC Houses, the #OneHRC House Marathon has FOUR Charity Partners which will equally split the proceeds from this event. Each of them are dedicated to saving the lives of the animals who represent our four houses:
The Gryffindor 21k will help Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida, build a new bobcat rehabilitation facility that minimizes human contact so these big cats can return to the wild. Learn more at: http://bigcatrescue.org/
The Ravenclaw 10k will help International Bird Rescue in San Francisco, California, build a new aviary to help save birds who are the victims of oil spills and natural disasters. Learn more at: https://www.bird-rescue.org/
The Slytherin 6k will help Friends of Scales outside of Chicago, Illinois, build their reptile rescue facility and provide life-saving veterinary care for abandoned and injured snakes, turtles, and other reptiles. Learn more at: http://www.friendsofscales.com/
The Hufflepuff 5k will help the Save Me Trust outside of London, England, organize three teams in Southern England to catch, vaccinate and release badgers to stop the spread of bovine tuberculosis and, more importantly, stop the Badger Cull which has killed thousands of badgers. Learn more at: http://www.save-me.org.uk/
In return for the $50 donation, participants will receive all FOUR beautiful 3” two-sided custom medals (and the center keystone!) on custom sublimated neck ribbons with velcro attachments so you can display them perfectly with your other medals.
Sign up today and help our charity partners save the lives of thousands of animals in need!
The challenge is daunting, but the reward is great! Each Hogwarts house has a distance and a medal all their own… but lock them together as they belong and you have #OneHRC in the palm of your hand… or hands, because it is enormous!!! Even better, in addition to four times the bling, you are helping do four times the #somuchgood!!
We have FOUR Charity Partners for this event!! Each charity represents an HRC house, working together to save the lives of animals all over the world. The funds from each campaign will be combined and divided equally amongst these four amazing charities!
All funds raised will be paid directly to Hogwarts Running Club for Equal Distribution between Big Cat Rescue, The Save Me Trust, International Bird Rescue, and Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue.
In its first two years, Hogwarts Running Club has raised over $420,000 for deserving charities making a direct impact in the lives of veterans, animals, literacy campaigns, and children battling (and beating!) terrible diseases. With our charity partners, we are changing the muggle-world one mile at a time. Check out our past events for more information on these incredible organizations.
Members of Hogwarts Running Club who have distinguished themselves by registering for all six events plus the Challenge event for a total of seven events in a given calendar year are named Perfect Prefects and enshrined in the hall of fame for all time.
