RunTogether challenges came about during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our current virtual running challenge - open to groups and individuals - is the Weekly 30 Challenge.
Weekly30 Run Challenge
Do you need a new reason to get running each week? Are you keen to represent your club and your sport in a new virtual competition?
If so, our Weekly30 Run Challenge is just for you!
With group running and mass participation events currently restricted, the Weekly30 Run Challenge gives you a perfect incentive to run on a weekly basis whilst also proudly representing your group. You’ll be competing against an online community of other runners from across the country.
*UPDATE* We have launched a new Weekly30 running challenge for 2021 – entrants from our previous 2020 challenge have been automatically assigned an entry to the 2021 version.
How to take part in the Weekly30 challenge
You are challenged to run as far as they can in 30 minutes on Saturday or Sunday each week (following government guidelines while running). Simply register free via the dedicated Weekly30 Run Challenge section of the OpenTrack virtual running platform (users only need to sign-up once).
Once registered, participants complete their weekly run at any time on a Saturday or Sunday and then upload evidence of their run to OpenTrack. Every runner will see their results added to the scoring tables, with both total distance and average distance contributing to overall league tables.
Our groups have been busy over the last year creating their own challenges and virtual running events in times when they’ve not been able to run together. We’ve highlighted just a few of many group challenges – check them out below:
Please keep tagging us in your running challenges - we love to see what you’re all getting up to and feel inspired by your continued positivity during this difficult time. And who knows, your challenge might inspire other groups to do something similar. Happy running everyone!
