About The Event
The Christmas challenge is a fun event for everyone to take part in. You can run or walk, or do a bit of both. You can dip in and out of it too. There is no pressure at all!
There is a different challenge each day which might be a specific run session, like a club run or a speed session or there might be a silly task.....you'll find out. If you can't make a session, don't worry....just run on your own!
The Rules of the Game:
1. There are no rules
2. You don’t have to do every run if you don’t want to run every day
3. If you take part on a day’s event…please take screen shot of your Strava……or a photo if that’s requested
4. There will be a post each day on the Facebook page and Whatsapp group to post your replies, photos and comments each day. Please do send photos or screenshots!
5. There are no prizes.
6. There is no winner
7. This is just for fun but the more people who join in, the more fun it will be
8. There isn’t a defined distance or time on most of the days to enable people to do their own thing
