Distance Challenges

Challenges start on a Monday, so you can choose to start on the Monday just gone, or the next Monday in the calendar. Each challenge costs £10 to join – your entry fee includes a unique finishers medal, access to training plans & tips, and support throughout the challenge.

The 7 miles in 7 days challenge can be completed in as many or as few runs as you like. Simply complete 7 miles in total over the 7 day period to complete the challenge. After all, a mile a day keeps the doctor at bay! There are three 28 day distance challenges ensuring there is a challenge for all – 50k, 100k and 150k. The challenge is to reach or exceed the distance total over the 28 day challenge period. This can be done in as many or as few runs as you like.

Our Junior challenge is for runners aged 14 and under. The challenge is to complete 7km in 7 days and this total can be completed in as many or as few runs as you like.

Once you’ve completed the distance or at the end of your challenge period, you need to submit your results in order to complete the challenge and claim your hard-earned medal. Once you’ve got your shiny new medal hanging around your neck… why not take the next step up & earn your next medal!

Your virtual start line awaits…simply pick your challenge below.
