GNR Solo January – Run Away from 2020!

Great Run have announced a January fundraising challenge to help put 2020 firmly behind us and start 2021 strong as you mean to go on.  The RUN AWAY FROM 2020 themed challenge starts TODAY (1st January) and finishes on 31st January, making it the perfect training partner if you’ve set yourself an active New Year’s Resolution.

The challenge is to complete 21 activities of any distance in January – it’s a challenge for all abilities that celebrates all activity.  Walk, jog, run, or do a mix of everything, it all counts! Complete 21 activities or more and your efforts will be rewarded with a snazzy 2-in-1 medal (it doubles up as a fridge magnet!).

To add extra motivation into the mix, the challenge includes an optional distance element. Depending how far you run over your 13 (or more) runs, you will be awarded with a bespoke digital finishers certificate to download and share:

  • Over the first hurdle – 35 Miles
  • Off to a flying start – 70 Miles
  • Firing on all cylinders – 125 Miles

The challenge is now open for entry and closes on Monday 11th January at 10.00am. Entry costs £15, which includes a finishers medal, access to training plans & tips, and access to an online run tracking tool.  Find out more and enter here:

Don’t forget to get your friends and family to sponsor you for taking on this challenge too! You can set up a fundraising page for Tiny Lives via Enthuse ot Just Giving

Happy Running!
