Whether you’re feeling racy or you just love running, Great Run have announced a February challenge that will get your heart racing!

What is it?

The Valentine’s themed challenge is to complete 14 runs of any distance in February – your reward is a special medal, the best Valentine’s gift a runner could ask for!

To spice things up, the challenge includes an optional distance element.  Depending how far you run over your 13 (or more) runs, you will be awarded with a bespoke digital finishers certificate to download and share:

  • Running head over heels – 35 Miles
  • It’s a Love Hate Thing – 70 miles
  • Love bitten by the running bug – 125 miles

The challenge starts on 1 February and finishes on 28 February, making it the perfect run buddy to keep you moving through February.
