The Advent 100k/50k Virtual Challenge

Virtual Event

Fri 25th December 2020

3 races

£11.60 - £54.10

COVID-19 INFORMATION

Please note the following changes for the event and please read the codes of conduct below.

1. The first change you will notice is the start time. Rather than a single start time for all runners, we are operating a pre-booking system with start times available in 3-minute slots. People will be allocated a place on the start line according to their anticipated finish time, with the fastest runner lining up on the front of the start line.
2. Please arrive ready to run. There are no changing facilities and no facilities for left baggage – this is in line with UKA Guidelines.
3. A sterile area will be in force around the start line with strictly no access to anybody other than participants and race officials. Once you enter this area you will not be able to leave until your race begins. NO SPECTATORS WILL BE ALLOWED WITHIN THIS STERILE AREA.
4. Again, in line with UKA Guidelines, water, in sealed bottles, will be available at the finish and you will be required to collect it yourself from an unmanned water table – hand sanitiser and gloves will be available for you to use. There will not be a water station on the course. Please dispose of the bottles and other litter in the bins provided.
5. Again, in line with UKA Guidelines, no results, race prizes or awards will be available on the day. Results will be uploaded immediately to our website and emailed to participants. Race and age group winners will receive a trophy in the post after the event. Medals will be available to be collected at the event.
6. There will be toilet facilities at the start / finish area and these will be sanitised regularly. Please play your part by washing your hands thoroughly and using hand sanitiser before and after use.
7. Hand sanitiser will be available – please use it regularly.
8. You must maintain social distancing at all times – before, during and after the race. When overtaking another runner please be mindful of the space available.
9. Spectators are not encouraged to attend – but if they must do so, they should not congregate around the race start or finish areas.
10. Once you finish your race please continue to walk through the finish funnel and return direct to your vehicle – do not wait for friends or family.
11. Please read the Participants and Spectators Code of Conduct - Please observe the ‘Rule of 6’ and do not gather in large groups to discuss the race or take team photos.

Organiser's Description

Advent is all about counting down to Christmas. This Challenge is all about counting up those kilometres! Your gleaming medal is not just for Christmas, it’s for life! Register a total of 100k before Christmas day to complete the Challenge.

It’s your decision how you tackle this Challenge. You can complete it in as many segments as you like (or as few!). Although the Challenge may seem daunting to many of us, 100k spread out across 24 days is just over 4k per day. You can run, jog, cycle or walk – anything you like, we don’t mind! However you decide to complete your 100k, we look forward to following your progress.

We have a magnificent advent calendar themed bespoke medal for everyone who completes the Challenge. Prizes will be given for those who run the furthest – so you don’t have to stop at 100k! When the Challenge begins on December 1st you can start clocking those miles - and your target is to complete 100km in 24 days, with the final date for entry to the Challenge being the 24th December.

Complete anywhere from Tuesday 1 December 2020 to 25 December 2020 - 12:00 am

It's easy to take part, once you have booked we will send you a step-by-step guide.

Simply enter the Challenge and we’ll send you a logbook to record your distance. Then return the completed logbook to us by email at the end of the Challenge and we’ll send you your exclusive Advent Challenge medal. Alternatively, you can send us traces or screenshots from your favourite fitness device. If you complete the Challenge using indoor sessions, then just take a quick snap of the treadmill displays.

What Is A Virtual Challenge?

This is a virtual challenge, which means you can take part anywhere in the World, in your own time and at your own pace. This also includes treadmill run / walks and indoor turbo cycles. You can run, walk or cycle!

This is a family-friendly event, for our younger runners and those new to running, we have a 50k option. Enter as a family (there is a discounted price for family groups) and, in addition to a bespoke medal each, there will be spot prizes awarded to families!
