“Steampunk is modern technology – iPads, computers, robotics, and air travel – powered by steam and set in the 1800’s.”
This virtual race features a detailed antiqued gold, 4-inch, 3-D modeled finisher’s medal. The Victorian era novel “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” written by Jules Verne inspired the design of this medal. The ribbon also complements the medal’s anachronistic feel.
Proceeds from this virtual race benefits Engineers Without Borders. Engineers Without Borders is an organization that builds a better world through engineering projects. These projects empower communities to meet their basic human needs and equip leaders to solve the world’s most pressing challenges. They find solutions for water supply, sanitation, energy, agriculture, civil works and structures.
