Nethersphere 9k


Nethersphere 9k


A face that seems familiar, but can't be placed...a terrifying discovery that threatens us in this life and the next...and the return of not one, but two relentless adversaries. All of this awaits the Doctor and Clara, beyond the reach of the tangible, living world, and inside a virtual reality created within a slice of the Time Lord database Matrix.

Whovian Running Club begins our 2019 season of incredible and otherworldly places with a race through:

The Nethersphere 9k!

In the two-part story "Dark Water" and "Death in Heaven", our Doctor and companion have to reach beyond this world to discover the truth behind the 3W Institute's real research. And behind this complex challenge is the unmistakable, unforgettable, unparalleled mistress of mayhem: Missy! As we finally learn the true identity of the sinister "Scary Poppins" who wove her way through Series 8, we're hit with a one-two punch in learning that she's harboring -- and creating -- armies of Cybermen!

All participants will get this amazing 3" medal that looks just like the Nethersphere! Of course, it comes with the custom satin ribbon and the always popular custom digital bib.

The Dark Water revealed a terrible secret...but we're going to talk about water and reveal a terrible truth. Today, in 2019, roughly 1.3 million Americans still don’t have hot and cold running water, a bathtub or shower or a working flush toilet. Many more don’t have clean water that’s safe to drink. And in the Navajo Nation in New Mexico, 40% of households risk disease and other medical issues because they don't have running water in their homes. Whovian Running Club is honored to announce that our charity partner for this event is Dig Deep and their Navajo Water Project. Whovian Running Club's goal with the first event of 2019 is to fund a complete home water system with solar power for the pumps as well as home lighting for at least TWO Navajo homes...and if we do very well, we think we can fund three or four! That's at least two homes where families can bathe, prepare meals and live better with clean, running water. Learn more at

And don’t forget to get your event shirt! Our very first Missy-themed shirt and she has a simple request before she murders you: Say Something Nice. All proceeds will go to Dig Deep. Get your shirt here:

The suggested run date for this event is January 22, Sir John Hurt's birthday. Remember, this is just a fun suggestion. You are welcome to complete your miles/kilometers whenever you want. All medals will be mailed the week after registration closes.
