Tokyo Olympics balloon race

Have some fun this Summer and join our Tokyo Olympics Balloon Race.

It’s a 7 day computer simulation race where everything is real except the balloon, and is 100% environmentally friendly with no litter or risk of harm to wildlife.

Each balloon costs just £3 and you can buy as many as you like.

Setting off from Tokyo, Japan your balloons along with hundreds of others will be ‘released’ on Sunday 8 August 2021 at 12pm (noon) and race for 7 days, finishing on Sunday 15 August at 12pm (noon). The balloon which travels the furthest distance in that time is the winner!

You can personalise each balloon by giving it a name, colour, shape and pattern and can select different features, such as thickness of latex, weight and the amount of helium which will determine its flight performance to increase your chances of winning.

Raise funds for Rennie Grove and enjoy this fun event with friends and family from the comfort of your own home where you can track your balloons live 24/7 on Google Maps and satellites as they gently float across the virtual sky. The specialist software uses live weather data to determine the progress of each balloon once the race has launched. You can alter your balloon’s parameters at any time to give yourself a better chance of winning.

Please note: sign up for the Balloon Race takes place directly on the Ecoracing website with proceeds coming to Rennie Grove when you select us as the charity you wish to support.
