Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re switching things up for the ACLT Run 5, Save Lives 5K this year.

Drumroll….. we’re making it a VIRTUAL 5K!

We’ve had so many of you reach out to us still wanting to do the run/walk, so we’re changing things around to make it happen.

Date: Sunday 16th May 2021.

Start Time: 10am

ACLT runs are ALWAYS about the family! Participants can be from toddler age (participating with their parents) right up to a senior age. It doesn’t matter what your fitness level is, everyone can register and be part of the fun!

The virtual run works exactly the same as our face-to-face 5K run, the only difference is that you can do the run at any location, at any pace, inside on a treadmill, or outside on a route of your own close to home.

You can run, walk or jog it too… still choosing to participate in support of our lifesaving work, in memory of loved ones or to support family, friends, colleagues, or others battling blood cancers or other illnesses where a lifesaving transplant is needed.


1. Email to provide evidence of the distance you’ve run by providing a screengrab of the run result captured by the app. (You can use a tracking app like Runkeeper, Couch to 5k or Nike Run Club – there are others you can choose). Within the subject heading for your email, please include “I completed the ACLT 5K.”

2. If you’re on social media, you’ll be in our good books for posting a screenshot of your app results using the hashtag #ICompletedACLTVirtual5K2021. Include a sweaty pic of yourself too, just for fun!

All participants should submit their run results by 5pm on the day of the run/walk.

Once we’ve reviewed your results, we’ll add you to the leaderboard. The fastest runner will be announced winner later that day and everyone will receive a participation certificate!

The ACLT 5K Run 5 Save Lives virtual event is sponsored by Mielle Organics, a hair care and beauty brand that believes healthier ingredients encourage healthier hair and skin.
