August 1: Our run date** for the Royal 10k, and a day of infamy in the fandom.
On what should have been a day of celebration and the wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour, Lord Voldemort’s supporters infiltrate, attack, and ultimately topple the Ministry of Magic.
Kingsley Shacklebolt sent his patronus to the wedding festivities, altering them to the attack, and spurring them to action.
So today, we run like the lynx, in honor of this great Auror, and in commune with one another.
** This is a suggested run date, and like all our virtual run events, you can complete your distance whenever and however you choose! We will be sharing photos of runners who tag the #royal10k event on Facebook and Twitter, or who tag us directly “@hogwartsrunningclub” on Instagram, though, if you want to run “with” us on this day!
