Land's End to John O'Groats Virtual Challenge
Sat 1st January 2022 - Sat 31st December 2022
Starting at 00:01
NEW for 2022! Why not push yourself like never before with our ultimate endurance test.
In this virtual challenge, your goal is to run, walk or jog from Land’s End in Cornwall to John O’Groats in Scotland. Don’t worry, we don’t actually expect you to literally do it. But this challenge allows you to complete the distance between the two points (874 miles).
The only rule is that you complete the challenge during 2022 (from 1st January to 31st December).
Download the Lands End to John OGroats Tracker
Run, jog or walk 874 miles from 1st January 2022 to 31st December 2022. Each time you complete an activity, record the miles on that particular day. We also accept treadmill activities.
The tracker automatically calculates the distance you have completed each month as well as the overall total. For example, if you ran 10 miles a week in April, it would show 40 miles for the monthly total and underneath it would show the total of any miles accumulated during January, February and March.
All participants will receive a beautiful white aluminum medal with a plain colour ribbon for their achievement.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY CHALLENGE?
Once you have completed the tracker and met the 874 miles requirement, you can email the spreadsheet to [email protected]
Then that's it! Your medal should arrive within 10 working days.
We do accept entries from overseas participants. However, please note that is an extra charge to cover postage costs. There may also be extra import duty charges and customs taxes depending on your country. You are liable to pay such charges. The Running Bug is unable to advise on these charges as they differ from country to country. We recommend you contact your local tax office.

What happens if I sign up for this challenge but then can't do it?
No problem. We understand that sometimes life gets in the way of your plans. If you find that you have signed up for one of our races then decide not to participate, we would be happy to defer your place onto another race at the same value. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refunds unless it is under special circumstances at the discretion of management.
How do I send you my evidence?
Submitting your evidence is really easy. Simply take a screenshot of your activity from your mobile and visit our secure submission form at https://the-running-bug.com/submit-your-evidence/ where you can upload your file. This will be emailed to us. We accept evidence from all activity apps including Strava, Garmin, Fitbit, etc. Once you have sent your evidence, you should be redirected to a confirmation page.
How long does it take to receive my medal?
Once your medal has been posted, you will receive another email to confirm. We aim to post your medals within 7 days of the conclusion of the event. All medals are sent second class by Royal Mail delivery. Medals sent to an address outside the UK can take longer. We do not take any responsibility for the loss or damage of medals in transit.
What happens if I don't receive my medal?
Sometimes items do get damaged or lost in the postal system. Unfortunately, we don’t have any control over this. However, we appreciate this can be frustrating and disappointing not receiving your medal. If in the event that you have not received a medal within 14 days after the event, please contact us with a photo of the damaged medal if appropriate and we will send a replacement medal for free. If in the event we do not have any replacement medals, we would be happy to transfer your place onto another race at no additional charges to you.
Do you accept entries outside the UK?
Yes we do. However, please be aware that non-UK entries incur a higher charge to cover extra administrative and postage costs. If a non-UK resident purchases a UK entry, The Running Bug reserves the right to refuse entry.
