England Athletics has launched the Weekly30 Run Challenge – a free weekly virtual running challenge that encourages runners of all levels to compete each weekend whilst also enabling competition between different sports. With group running and mass participation events currently restricted, the Weekly30 Run Challenge gives individuals a perfect incentive to run on a weekly basis whilst also proudly representing their sport. You’ll be competing against an online community of other runners from across the country – the competition will be fierce and the pride of your sport is at stake!
From 20-21 June 2020, participants will be challenged to run as far as they can in 30 minutes on Saturday or Sunday each week (following government guidelines while running).
