Organiser's Description

Our December Accumulator challenge is sure to have you running on Christmas cheer and keep you from going crackers!

Complete the 12 runs of Christmas (or more runs if you wish) of any distance between 1 & 25 December and earn yourself a special Christmas tree medal decoration.

But wait, there’s myrrh… the challenge includes an optional distance element with a bespoke digital certificate awarded to anyone who completes a distance award. The challenge starts on 1 December and ends on 25 December, and you can join the challenge anytime from now up to Tuesday 8 December at 10am, when entries close.

It costs £15 to join – your entry fee includes a unique finishers medal, access to training plans & tips, access to our online tracking tool, and support throughout the challenge.

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!
