The Great Reindeer Round-up Virtual Arctic Circle Challenge

Virtual Event from Iceland to Lapland

Organiser's Description

Rudolph needs your help to travel around the Arctic Circle, find his reindeer friends and get to Lapland in time to celebrate Christmas!

Sign up for the Great Reindeer Round-Up, turn your activity into distance and help speed Rudolph along his 14,000km journey.

Our fun virtual mission for all the family starts on Saturday 7th November. Sign up now and let's get Rudolph off to a flying start! We'll send everyone in your group a pair of antlers, and everyone who takes part receives a hand-finished, sustainably-sourced wooden medal.

Use our Activity Converter to calculate your daily distance, upload to the mission page and follow Rudolph's progress. All kinds of activities can count: Running, walking, cycling, swimming - even helping with the housework!

Don't feel daunted by the distance! Everyone will be working together as part of a super team to help Rudolph and his friends cover the distance and complete the challenge in time for Christmas Eve.

Customisable Race Bib
Download and create your own race bib! You don't have to wear one to take part, but it's a good way to show people you're taking part in the Great Reindeer Round-up.

Interactive Mission Page
Record and track your progress on the Great Reindeer Round-Up Mission Page.
Everyone in your group can record their own activity.
As soon as you've added each activity you'll be able to watch Rudolph's progress across the Arctic Circle.

Downloadable Participation Certificate
Once the challenge is complete you'll be able to dowload a Finisher's Certificate so you can share your achievement.

We have partnered with My Virtual Mission so you can track your activity and follow Rudolph's progress. Join the Mission, upload your activity and see the difference your kilometres are making.

You can record as many different activities as you like, as frequently as you like. If you've signed up as a family or group everyone can add their individual activities and they will all add towards Rudolph's progress.

You don't need to use a fitness tracker! Use our Activity Converter to convert your activity into kilometres, log it on the Great Reindeer Round-Up Mission Page and see where you are on the Leaderboard.

Follow us on Facebook (@reindeerroundup) for updates from Mission HQ and look out for information on ways you can turbo-charge your activity and help the team accelerate through the distance!

The Great Reindeer Round-Up is a team challenge - everyone is working together to put the kilometres in to help Rudolph find his friends. Watch the team's progress across the map on our Mission Page.

Our Leaderboard lets you see how your activities are helping towards the team goal.

You can also share photos of your activities and accomplishments with the rest of the team on the Mission Page and social media @ReindeerRoundUp

As Rudolph travels along the route there will be some fun challenges to tackle. These could hold the clue to the location of the nearest reindeer.

With 14,000km to cover and 8 reindeer to round up before Christmas, Rudolph will be relying on everyone in the team to help him!
