Friends of St.Michael's PTA High Wycombe


We are delighted to share our first ever ‘Virtual’ Balloon Race – a computer simulation race where everything is real except the balloon !
It’s 100% eco-friendly with no risk of harm to wildlife.

How to get involved ?

Each virtual balloon costs just £3 and you can buy as many balloons as you would like. For full details and to buy balloons please visit: https://ecoracing.co/user/page/1076. Once on our Balloon Race page, simply sign-up (so we know who you are if you win). Once you have
paid for your balloon you can then name, personalise, and decorate your balloon via your dashboard by choosing the shape, colour, and pattern, plus the helium content and rubber thickness.

Setting off from Santa's Village in Lapland, the balloons will be ‘released’ on Christmas Day at12pm (noon) and race for 7 days.

Enjoy taking part in this fun event from the comfort of your own home and track your balloons live as they gently float across the virtual sky. The specialist software uses live weather data to determine the progress of each balloon and they can be tracked on Google Maps and satellites once the race has launched.

You can alter your balloon’s parameters at any time to increase your chance of winning.

The race finishes on New Year's Day at 12pm (noon). Winners will be contacted directly and announced on our Facebook Page on 4th January 2021.

A balloon for you, a balloon for me, a balloon for our family...
