Looking for a Solo Santa Dash? Take part in the Great Run Solo

Great Run have announced a December challenge that is sure to have you running on Christmas cheer and keep you from going crackers!

The challenge is to complete the 12 Runs of Christmas (or more runs if you wish) of any distance between 1 & 25 December.  Your reward is a tree-mendous medal that will light up any Christmas tree.

Everyone who enters will be sent a unique medal that can be worn with pride or hung on your Christmas tree, but which will you get?  Great Run have created 3 different festive medals and inspired by Secret Santa tradition, you won’t know which medal is yours until it lands on your doormat!

But wait, there’s myrrh…  the challenge includes an optional distance challenge.  Depending how far you run over your 12 (or more) runs, you will be awarded with a bespoke digital finishers certificate to download and share:

  • A round of santa-plause – 30 Miles
  • Run Run Rudolph – 60 miles
  • There’s snow stopping you – 100 miles

There is a separate Christmas challenge for runners aged 14 years and under:  The Little Star challenge is for ages 9 & under, and The Nightmare Before Christmas challenge is for ages 10 to 14 years.

The weather outside is frightful, but this delightful challenge will fire you up to keep on running through December! Whether you run in elf-isolation, or sign up with your tinsel troupe, may all your miles be merry!
