Challenge Club FAQs - Run21

What is Challenge Club?       

Challenge Club is a virtual run series from 

Entrants choose a cumulative or one-off distance to run, walk or cycle within a defined period. 

It's a great way to stay motivated throughout the month and to earn yourself a lovely looking medal.


What is a virtual race though?          

A virtual race is just that. You can complete it whenever and wherever you want. You can do it at the gym, on the roads... anywhere you can run, walk or cycle. Please keep respect current local advice for social distancing at all times.


What options are there for the Challenge Club?      

We have a couple of options for Team and Solo challenges.

1) Team - Invite one or more people to achieve a team goal.

2) Solo - If you don't fancy either of the above you can just choose a distance or a race challenge on your own.

For more information on each of these please visit the event pages 



What’s the difference between a distance challenge and a race challenge? 

Distance Challenges are for a cumulative distance over the time period, whereas a Race Challenge has to be completed in one go. Choose whichever works best for your goals!


Is there a start date / deadline?

Your challenge can start as soon as you sign up, though the idea is to provide a goal and motivation through the month of January 2021. You have until the deadline date of midnight on the 31st January 2021 to complete the challenge and upload your evidence. Medals and t-shirts etc will be shipped out once the challenge is over, so sometime around early to mid February.


What do I have to do to sign up?      

Super easy! Just choose the option that works best for you and enter your details. Once you've signed up we will keep you informed throughout the challenge. All you need to do is complete your challenge before the deadline, and upload your evidence.

For the collaborate options, your team members will get an invitation to sign themselves up to your team.  Each signed up team member will get a medal once the challenge has been complete.


What do you mean by race evidence?          

To get the medal we need to know you completed the challenge. We can take evidence in many forms; a photo of the distance on your watch/treadmill, a screenshot from any one of the running apps, an excel sheet you use to log your runs. We're the believing type so if you tell us you've done it, we trust you. You'd only be cheating yourself anyway and who would do that???


How do I upload my evidence?         

You can upload your evidence using the evidence form here.  If you have any problems just give us a shout by emailing

You can upload your evidence as you go along and your progress will be displayed on the tracker board.  Please use your unique booking reference number when uploading evidence.


Where can I get information on the races I’ve entered?      

We will send an email with all the information for your race and another to let you know to send over the evidence. If you have any questions at all just get in touch -


Who can enter a virtual race?

Everyone! We suggest that anyone under 18 should complete the distance under supervision. By entering a FAR virtual race you agree that any injury or damage caused by completing your race / challenge is your own responsibility. FIND A RACE Ltd accepts no responsibility for any damage or injury occurring during completing a race / challenge. Please see our terms and conditions for more information.


When will I get my medal?    

As soon as the challenge period finishes we will send out a medal to everyone who has completed their race or challenge - so medals for the Run21 January Challenge will start being shipped in mid February. 


When will I get my T-Shirt?    

T-Shirts are posted out with the medals, once the challenge has closed and has been completed.


Who can I contact if someone goes wrong?    

Please email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Please include your booking reference with any communications!
