Run to the Deep

This my second Saturday in a row enjoying a virtual race from the British Science Association and RacelinkRun to the Deep takes a horizontal 10 km and maps a descent of the same distance onto it, so that sea life, ship wrecks and the barely known depths are explored. The run is narrated by Pierre-Yves Cousteau and it’s every bit as good as I had hoped.

Following in the footsteps of the hugely popular Run the Solar System, Run to the Deep is a 10k ‘virtual race’ which involves journeying from the sea surface to the bottom of the ocean– accompanied by music and audio commentary from explorer Pierre-Yves Cousteau, son of the famous marine conservationist Jacques-Yves Cousteau. Discover mysterious creatures, amazing seascapes, and explore alien environments as you run down to the depths of the ocean.

My running today wasn’t as strong as I might have liked, but it was fun. I made the mistake of ending my run at Dartmouth Crossing, a hideously anti-pedestrian shopping zone, so there was a lot of stopping and starting at poorly designed traffic lights.

The race is free to enter and is running from March 9th until March 18, 2018.
