Running challenges for all the family

Running challenges are big at the moment; you’ll have seen them online.

We’ve been investigating some of the great ones our clubs and running groups have been up to. They’ve completed everything from virtual running challenges of 26x1mile on London Marathon Sunday to 5k time trails. Read on to discover a fun running challenge for you to try as family.
