To join us in supporting the NHS & Marie Curie during these unprecedented times, here''s what you need to know.
When can I enter?
Entries are now open and will close on Friday 22nd May at 5pm.
How much does it cost?
There is an admin fee of just ?2.99. This covers the post and packaging for delivering your medal. Although, as this is a fundraiser for the NHS Appeal and Marie Curie, we do ask that you strongly consider donating: ?10, ?15 or ?20 as part of your entry process. This is clearly sign posted during sign-up. 100% of your donation will go to the two charities, split equally.
Where will the money I donate go to?
All donation proceeds will be split 50/50 between Marie Curie and the NHS Charities Covid-19 Appeal.
How far do I need to cycle?
Although we won''t track this, and we suggest that you only take on whatever you feel comfortable with. For those that wish, we think that cycling a total of 85 miles over the 31 days in May might be a good way to approach the virtual event.
How do I record my rides?
If you wish to send us proof of one of your rides (note: this is not mandatory), please:
1. Log in to MyEvents
2. Select The Virtual Etape event from your list of current events - the ''upload'' prompt will be visible
3. Upload your screenshot or image displaying your result (acceptable formats: PDF, JPG, GIF or PNG. Size: less than 1MB).

How long do I have to complete the event?
The Virtual Etape Caledonia - supporting the NHS Charities Covid-19 Appeal & Marie Curie will run from: 9am on Friday 1st May - 7pm to Sunday 31st May 2020.
Can I take part indoors?
Yes, absolutely. If you have a static bike or roller - you can enter too. Anyone who supports the Virtual Etape Caledonia - supporting the NHS Charities Covid-19 Appeal & Marie Curie will be sent their participation medal.
Will I get a medal?
Of course! Those taking part will be sent a 2020 Etape Caledonia medal. Please note that medal numbers are limited and only the first 4,500 entrants will be posted a medal. These will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
