New Year? New lockdown? New challenge!

Wait! Don’t waste all this New Year fitness enthusiasm on a couple of aimless runs around the local ring road. Sink your fitness chops into a really juicy challenge like, well, like running the length of Route 66…

It’s one of the Conqueror Challenges, which offer motivating options like walking the equivalent distance of Hadrian’s Wall or Land’s End to John O’Groats, each with their own awesome medal. Our own Becky Frost has jumped in with with both feet this month and undertaken to climb Mount Fuji (well, virtually at least)!

Conqueror Challenges aside, what about setting your own personal challenge? Our ambassador George Osborn aims to run 100km each month throughout 2021! The great thing about setting personal goals of this kind is that you can pick the level of challenge that's right for you. Head over to our Virtual Events page for more ideas.

We’ve also got some good old-fashioned real world running events to tempt you with in 2021 with the hope that they’ll be able to take place later in the year. As it stands, you can sign up for the London 10K, Cambridge Half and Oxford Half. Our ambassador Oscar Clark, who’s always first to sign-up for the London 10K, has already been clocking up the kms.

Let us know what you decide to do! We're behind you all the way. Literally, judging by the fitness of many of our team.
