Doctor Who Companions 13k



By Whovian Running Club

The Whovian Running Club (WRC) is honored to partner once again with SOS Galgos and Gaglos Del Sol to present the third in our Defenders of Galgos Series of virtual races, the Companions 13k.   Throughout the half century that the fictional Doctor Who universe has been in existence, The Doctor has nearly always travelled through time and space with a companion.  The Companions 13k is a celebration of the Doctor\'s companions in all of their diversity. All proceeds from the Defenders of Galgos Series will go to support two of the foremost charities working in Spain to save the lives of Spanish Greyhounds, better known as galgos.  The sad fact is that tens of thousands of galgos are abandoned and brutally murdered every year in Spain once they reach the end of their \"usefulness\" as racing dogs.  SOS Galgos and Galgos Del Sol are working to change public attitudes in Spain through education campaigns, and advocate to change local and national laws to make animal abuse a thing of the past in Spanish society.   Each person who registers for the Companions 13k event will receive a customized digital bib, and a 4” x 2 3/8” finisher’s medal featuring a full color insert under acrylic of the TARDIS console room with more than a dozen \"easter egg\" items representing fan favorite companions sprinkled throughout the image.   Each medals comes on a full color dye sublimated 1.5” ribbon with velcro closure.   The suggested run date for this event is Friday, May 12th which is the birthday of actress Catherine Tate who played companion Donna Noble in the Doctor Who series. All medals will be mailed on Monday, May 22nd.
