Lace up for the Weekly30 Run Challenge

June 17th 2020

If you’re struggling to stay motivated with your exercise regime, England Athletics is launching a virtual running challenge that could make a big difference to your health and wellbeing.

Designed to encourage everyone regardless of physical fitness levels, Weekly30 Run Challenge participants are challenged to run as far as they can in 30 minutes on either Saturday or Sunday each week (following government social distancing guidelines while running). The fun starts on 20-21 June and is set to take place each week until the end of the year.

With group running and mass participation events currently restricted, the Weekly30 Run Challenge is a great incentive to run regularly while also proudly representing your club and your sport – you definitely won’t be alone! Athletes from other sports organisations are supporting the challenge including Badminton England, RFU, RFL, British Rowing, England Netball, and British Wrestling – with more set to join. You’ll be competing against an online community of other runners from across the country so expect some tough competition!

Fancy it? Runners simply register free via the dedicated Weekly30 Run Challenge section of the OpenTrack virtual running platform (users only need to sign-up once) – adding details including your club and your sport. Once registered, complete your weekly run at any time on either a Saturday or Sunday. Every runner will see their results added to a scoring table with both total distance and average distance contributing to an overall league table showing results for sport versus sport.

Don’t forget to share your run distances through your own social media channels using the hashtags: #BetterTogether #virtualrunning #Weekly30RunChallenge #runchallenge #runningchallenge #virtualcompetition #runsafe #socialdistancing #stayalert

Let us know how you get on too! @ArcheryGB
