Join our 100% eco-friendly virtual balloon race this Christmas and, together, let's Beat Macular Disease!

You'll be blown away by how simple it is to get involved:
1. Buy a balloon or gift one to a friend or relative (£3 each) - you'll be asked to create an account so they know who each balloon belongs to
2. Decorate your balloon and change its flight parameters
3. Sit back and watch your balloon as it races from Santa's Village in Lapland (Race starts 12 noon, 25 December 2022)
4. Will your balloon fly the furthest by New Year's Day?

Prizes (provided by EcoRacing for Overall winners of the Christmas Race)
1st place - £100 cash
2nd place - Amazon Alexa / Echo Dot 4th Generation!

Ecoracing is an internet based, virtual balloon race that uses real weather data and interactive mapping for real-time flight path tracking. No wildlife is harmed, climate change isn't affected and there's no litter!
