By competing in The Samurai you help Beating Bowel Cancer, a charity that supports and campaigns for everyone affected by bowel cancer. We will donate 20% of the profits from this challenge.
Your reward for completion of this challenge is a high quality 60mm* enamelled Virtual Warrior medal.
The medal is supplied on a black woven ribbon printed with the race name. But as we’ve had feedback from our runners that they would like to display their medals in different ways, this medal is also designed as a bottle opener, and comes with a metal attachment to use as a keyring.
Please note: for child protection purposes, please do not submit photos of your child swimming, either with your evidence or on our social media pages. Thank you.
* Larger medals! We have regrettably had to increase our entry fee from £10 to £12 for races from June onwards; the sinking pound has finally caught up with our medal manufacturers. But as the cost of metal remains unaffected we took the opportunity to increase the size a little, so we are sure you’ll agree they still offer great value for money!
