Run, run, run!

This weekend was the annual running of the gnomes. It’s a fun in game event created by some lovely people to raise money for breast cancer research. It’s a great event that the WoW team even featured this year!

This was my second year running it, so I was a bit more prepared – I had my tabard already from last year, and had at least a vague idea of where I was going. The servers went down a fair bit, but Blizz were hard at work getting them going for us all again. In the end the start was a little rough, and people ended up just starting to run as soon as they were able to. Which ended up working out fine. I managed to find Klor and we grouped up at Ironforge, but got split up when the servers kept crashing for us at different times.

I successfully went the wrong way a few times and died. But in the end I made it! I was really glad to be there for the forming of a the heart – last year I missed it. And even better – we all actually managed to make a heart shape!

It was a lot of fun, and I hope it continues on in years to come. This year they managed to raise over $5000 and had a bit over 2800 people do the run in total. If you didn’t make the even but still want to make a donation you can, just head over to the donation page.

    I’m a little sad I didn’t see anyone I knew but I should have turned names on so it was easier to recognise people. This was my first run so I was glad I finally made it after missing out last year.

      aww I wish I had have seen you, too! The sharding makes it difficult to see other people unless you’re in a group, though. I would have run along with you if I saw you, though. Or at least grabbed a selfie with you 🙂 It is definitely loads more fun when you have people to run with. Hopefully next year!
