Welcome to Plan B: Act 2

Thousands of people took part in the first Plan B in April, raising more than £25,000 for The W.H.O. Now it's time for Plan B: Act 2, with a range of distance goals and gameplay options to keep you fully motivated: solo challenges; team challenges; or head-to-head.

We'll continue to raise funds for The W.H.O. to develop a COVID19 vaccine (and get us safely back out running together).

So what's it going to be? Compete or Collaborate?

Update: Act 2 closing soon, last few places remaining.

Act 3 going live 1 June.

What is the PLAN B Act 2 Virtual Challenge?

PLAN B Act 2 Virtual Challenge is a great way to stay motivated, get a great medal and do some good. 100% of the profits go to charity.

What options are there for Act 2?

There are a few more options for Act 2 which include Compete, Collaborate, Solo, and plus challenges for kids. Within these there are options for a distance challenge or a race challenge.

How does the charity donation work?

£2.50 from each entry will go to the World Health Organisation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. If you want to raise any additional money during your running that would be even better.

What’s the difference between a distance challenge and a race distance?

The distance challenges are for a cumulative distance in the time period and a race distance has to be completed in one go. Depending on your goals you can choose which works best for you.

Is there a deadline?

The deadline is a rolling 30 days, ie. all challenges need to be completed within 30 days of entering.

Is there a start date?

No. You can start your challenge as soon as you've entered.

What do I have to do to sign up?

Super easy! Just choose the distance or time challenge that you want and enter your details. Once you've signed up we will keep you informed throughout the challenge. All you need to do is complete your challenge by the deadline specified, upload your evidence and then your medal will be sent out in the post.

What do you mean by race evidence?

To get the medal we need to know you completed the challenge. We can take evidence in many forms; a photo of the distance on your watch/treadmill, a screenshot from any one of the running apps, an excel sheet you use to log your runs, a photo of you doing your home workout. We're the believing type so if you tell us you've done it, we trust you.

Who can enter a virtual challenge?

Everyone! We suggest that anyone under 18 should complete the distance/time under supervision. By entering a virtual race you agree that any injury or damage caused by completing your race/challenge is your own responsibility. Find a Race Ltd accepts no responsibility for any damage or injury occurring during completing a race/challenge. Please see our terms and conditions for more information.

How do I upload my evidence?

After completing your challenge, you can upload your evidence here:

Where can I get information on the races I’ve entered?

We will send an email with all the information for your race and another to let you know how to send over the evidence.

When will I get my medal?

Medals will be ready to ship out from the first week of June onwards.
