The Advent 100k/50k Virtual Challenge

Join us for the Virtual Advent 100k Challenge!


Advent is all about counting down to Christmas. This Challenge is all about counting up those kilometres! Your gleaming medal is not just for Christmas, it’s for life!


Our Advent Challenge is all about keeping fit and getting active in the lead up to Christmas. Register a total of 100k before Christmas day to complete the Challenge. Get ready for the festivities and challenge yourself - before all the festive madness begins!


It’s your decision how you tackle this Challenge. You can complete it in as many segments as you like (or as few!). Although the Challenge may seem daunting to many of us, 100k spread out across 24 days is just over 4k per day.  You can run, jog, cycle or walk – anything you like, we don’t mind! However you decide to complete your 100k, we look forward to following your progress.


We have a magnificent advent calendar themed bespoke medal for everyone who completes the Challenge. Prizes will be given for those who run the furthest – so you don’t have to stop at 100k!


When the Challenge begins on December 1st you can start clocking those miles - and your target is to complete 100km in 24 days, with the final date for entry to the Challenge being the 24th December. 


What is a virtual challenge?
This is a virtual challenge, which means you can take part anywhere in the world, in your own time and at your own pace. This also includes treadmill run / walks and indoor turbo cycles. You can run, walk or cycle!
This is a family- friendly event, for our younger runners and those new to running, we have a 50k option. Enter as a family (there is a discounted price for family groups) and, in addition to a bespoke medal each, there will be spot prizes awarded to families!

How do I take part?
It's easy to take part, once you have booked we will send you a step-by-step guide.
Simply enter the Challenge and we’ll send you a logbook to record your distance. Then return the completed logbook to us by email at the end of the Challenge and we’ll send you your exclusive Advent Challenge medal. Alternatively, you can send us traces or screenshots from your favourite fitness device. If you complete the Challenge using indoor sessions, then just take a quick snap of the treadmill displays.
We look forward to you joining us and taking on the Advent Challenge to celebrate this wonderful time of year.
