The Nice Work Summer Holiday Virtual Half Marathon, 10k, 5k and 1k

Stay fit and healthy this summer – and pick up some fab holiday bling!

Celebrate the start of the Summer holiday season with the Nice Work Summer Holiday Virtual Half Marathon, 10k, 5k & 1k Challenge.
If you are missing the excitement of taking part in live races and missing the camaraderie (aka competition!), then this is literally the next best thing! This summer may be somewhat different to what we’re used to – but if you’ve been in lockdown, this virtual event is just the tonic if you’re looking to grab some holiday bling.
Taking place over the weekend of 25th - 26th July 2020, all finishers will receive one of our exclusive bespoke medals.
Our first 3 Challenges have been an enormous success with runners loving the leader board and replication of a 'real' race. Our exciting results platform also has a Selfie Gallery, enabling you to see and high five your fellow runners!  
And that’s not all!
With a choice of four distances, including a 1k for youngsters and those brand new to running, the event also offers:

- Race trophies for leading runners
- Wide range of age group prizes
- Spot prizes for creativity and best selfies
- An official UK Athletics licence

This is a family friendly event – so why not get the kids involved? And, if you have taken on a previous challenge, why not see if you can improve on your time? Its a great way to track your running progress.

" I was struggling with running during lock down and it was great to have something to focus on"
"Thank you Nice Work, nearly as good as the real thing!"
"It was great to have a goal for my Sunday runs and see my speed improve during lock down"

Nice Work has teamed up with Let's Do This to bring you this Summer Holiday Virtual Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, and 1K Challenge. Taking place over the last weekend in July, it’s a chance to get active (within appropriate social distancing) and get your hands on a special bespoke medal. There will also be prizes for leading runners and age group winners - it's a virtual race with a difference!

This is a family friendly event, with an emphasis on encouraging our younger runners to get involved in the challenge. There is a 1k distance for younger runners and families to get involved too.

The challenge is a virtual running event, which means you can participate and complete the challenge from anywhere in the world, including treadmill runs. You can run your Half Marathon, 10k, 5k or 1k at any point over the three days, starting from 09:00am on Saturday 25th July through to midnight Monday 27th July. All the results will be collated into a leader board and prizes awarded to overall winners and age category winners.

All you need to do is record your run with a GPS watch or activity tracking app, and snap an epic finisher's selfie to submit with your time on the Let's Do This web page. All the results will be collated into a leader board and prizes awarded to overall winners and age category winners. Plus spot prizes for creativity and best finishers' selfies!

Participants that complete the Half Marathon, 10K, 5K & 1k will get a high-quality bespoke Nice Work medal, and there will be prizes for overall and age category winners.

The event carries a UK Athletics licence and results will be submitted shortly after the race has taken place.
