Run the Solar System

This virtual race was first created for British Science Week 2017 but has been relaunched due to popular demand. While you’re waiting for British Science Week 2018 to kick off, why not dust off your trainers and travel through space with us?

Run the Solar System is a 10k ‘virtual race’ which involved journeying across the Solar System from the Sun to Neptune in just 10 kilometres accompanied by music and audio commentry from science broadcaster Dallas Campbell.
