Virtual Balloon Race

Date: 4th Apr 2021

How about joining a VIRTUAL Balloon Race, organised by Rotary in Harpenden and Ecoracing?

A cash prize of £500 goes to the balloon that travels the furthest and 11 runners-up get prizes, too.
No real balloons are used so it’s a 100% eco-friendly event. But actual weather data are used and will affect the progress of your balloon, as calculated by computer.

The seven-day race begins in Jerusalem on Easter Sunday, 4 April, so buy your balloon for £3 before that date and follow its progress on-line with your computer, smart phone or tablet. All proceeds go to Rotary’s END POLIO NOW charity campaign.
