January 2020

 

Your new year challenge, wherever you are!

Ready…get set…run off Christmas! Get 2020 off to a running start and feel fantastic as you build your fitness AND raise money to help seriously ill children.

Your new year challenge

When December’s festivities are over, run 31 miles your way – whether that’s a mile a day or three miles a few times a week – you can break it up in a way that works for you. This is the run that suits everyone! Run in the park, by a river, through town or on a treadmill. Run by yourself, with a friend or with a team and choose your own fundraising goal so family and friends can sponsor you.
