The Virtual Balloon Race is a balloon race with a difference – there are no balloons! It’s not because we can’t be bothered to blow them all up. It’s because when real balloons come down, they litter the countryside and fall into the sea, where creatures like turtles can mistake them for food.

Amazing Race Features

The virtual race system has some great features including a decorator function which allows you to colour-in a balloon shape of your choice and add a few words of text. Similarly you can change the amount of helium inside the balloon, thickness of rubber and the shape. All these parameters affect the speed and vulnerability of your balloon. And you can check out progress on Google maps too!


SHINE is Europe's largest organisation dedicated to supporting individuals who face the challenges arising from Spina Bifida or Hydrocephalus. And over the last 3 years they have used to run 10 races per year and raise in excess of £3 million. So if can work for SHINE, it can work well for you too!.
