How it Works

Run up to Christmas is a virtual running event – so it can be run anywhere in whatever way you want.

We love running, we love a challenge, we love quirkiness and we love being inclusive. We want to get as many of you up and out as we can, and we want to support you every step of the way.

Run up to Christmas is our new festive themed virtual running event.

You have from the 1st December to christmas day to run as many miles as you want, or even better as you can. We have 5 Milestones to reach, and you can do it on your own or with your best running buddies!
-50km (avg. 2K a day)
-100km (avg. 4k a day)
-150km (avg. 6k a day)
-200km (avg. 8k a day)
or a whopping 250km (avg. 10k a day)

This is not a run streak challenge, you do not need to run every day (but you obviously can if you want to). You just have to set a goal to hit one of our targets, track your runs through whatever running site you use, and at the end of the 25 days send us a link to that site so we can count up your miles.

If you've hit one of our milestones you get one of our festive medals (with unique lanyards for each milestone). Surpass our goals and run even further and they'll be an extra special festive treat!

As always we will have prizes and quirky ways to keep you motivated to run this festive season!
