Big Bear Challenge Virtual Event

Virtual Race

United Kingdom

Wed 31st March 2021

Organiser's Description

Missing our flapjacks, drinks and medals? Get involved with our virtual 10K event! The idea of this virtual challenge is to remind those who have run with us before of the joys of running with Big Bear Events. For those that haven’t yet run with us, here are some tips on what makes our events special!

It wouldn’t be a Big Bear Event without some laps involved, we normally try to make them 3.3 miles but any number would be very Big Bear esque! Our events are predominantly in the woods or country parks, and you can’t really do a Big Bear event without having a smorgasbord of food available, so get your jaffa cakes, battenberg or nutella wraps out and ready! Of course the best bit is the camaraderie between runners, which is trickier to pull off during lockdown, but why not run with a buddy to earn your Big Bear Challenge medal?

But feel free to run it however you see fit, be fore the end of March - just make sure to enjoy it and share your pictures with us all!!
How It Works

The process is simple. You sign up to the event and we will send your medal out in the post. Once it arrives it is then up to you when you run your challenge and where you run (within Government guidelines of course).

Entry cost, including medal delivery, is £13.

There is no set minimum or maximum distance and the Big Bear Event experience isn’t mandatory, just a nice to do addition! Just make sure you run safely and within your capabilities, we don’t want to be adding to NHS pressures!

Sending the medal out before you've completed the run means you can be out on your run knowing that the medal is sitting waiting for you at home once you've finished. That extra bit of motivation to get out!

We are trying to limit trips to the post office for everyone’s safety but will look to post medals out every few days.

If you’re looking to get involved in the fun but without the medal then why not let us plant you a tree with Trees not Tees instead. You can select this option during the sign up process.


Once you have entered there are no refunds if we have posted your order.

You are responsible for your safety while out on your run and must run within your local Government guidelines.

After My Run

Once you have completed your run use the link in your joining email to upload your results to the leaderboard.

More importantly get on to the Big Bear Events Facebook group and let everyone know what you did to remind you of a Big Bear Event! Pictures are encouraged and we’ll send out some merch spot prizes for the best and most creative ideas.
