Weekly30 Run Challenge - competition reset for 2021

We’ve created a new Weekly30 Run Challenge for 2021 – replacing the 2020 challenge so that competitors can see their scores count towards a new year!

All registered entrants to the previous 2020 challenge have been automatically assigned to the new 2021 version on OpenTrack. All participants should ensure they submit their results from upcoming weekends to the new Weekly30 Run Challenge 2021 OpenTrack page – accessible via the below link (which will incorporate any registered scores from the previous weekends of 2/3 and 9/10 Jan).

Click here to visit the Weekly30 Run Challenge 2021 page on OpenTrack.

The previous 2020 competition will still be accessible via OpenTrack for a period of time for anyone wanting to refer back to their previous stats. Please continue to refer to competition rules and follow government guidance including staying close to home, social distancing and planning your route.
