Get a free 2016 edition wristband

Add a race to your 'Doing' list and we'll send you a free wristband to remind you of your goal.

We all know we should exercise regularly. With regular exercise comes better sleep, a healthy appetite and less stress. In other words, happiness. But sometimes the inclination to exercise just isn’t there. 

Having a clear goal to aim for can make a big difference. It gives your exercise a purpose. Knowing that an event is getting close is often the only thing that gets you out the door for a run or a ride.

Find a Race helps you find that goal to aim for. From gentle 5k’s near home to once-in-a-lifetime adventures in remote corners of the world.

But they do all take a bit of willpower to achieve. So once you've found a goal, the wristband will be a wee reminder that the countdown to race day has begun.

How do I get one?

To receive your wristband, add an event to your 'Doing' list, fill out your delivery address in the form that pops-up and we'll send you a wristband in the post.

If you are not already a member, you can sign-up using the 'Sign Up' button at the top of the page or in the side navigation.

Brag time

Once you've found a goal, the next step is to tell everyone about it. Its no good keeping it a secret. Tell the family, tell friends, colleagues and even the postman if he'll listen. The more people know about it, the less likely you are to back out. Tell us on Twitter or Facebook and we'll help spread the word too.


The bands have left the building. Hundreds of them went out and we like to think they found good homes on strong and honest wrists across the UK. Thanks to everyone who shared photos on Twitter and Instagram, we'll continue to share the pics as they're posted.
