With a summer without sport, we have created our own virtual Olympics Challenge! You have three distance options to choose from that you will need to accumulate between 24th July and 9th August. Firstly, you can choose 15km. If you want to push yourself a little bit more, you can select 50km. Finally, if you want a huge challenge, you can go for 135km to complete in those 17 days. Which target will you choose?
We have gone for an old school medal for this with a mix between the RFTW 'running man' logo and the Olympic rings. It has gold coloured plating because whichever target you choose, you all deserve a gold medal! This is definitely one for your medal rack.
Any donations for this event will be going to The Running Charity. This is a fantastic charity that helps homeless 16-25 year olds in London and Manchester get on their feet (literally). We all know that running helps with mental health so this is a great help for those less fortunate to build mental, social and other life skills to build a better future for themselves.
As there are 15 different running/walking events in the Olympics, we will be giving away 15 lucky draw Prize Boxes of RFTW goodies worth £25. All runners who complete their chosen distance will be entered into the draw. In addition to these, the top three on the donations leaderboard will also earn themselves a Prize Box.
