Back to School 2017 Challenge

Thank you for entering our Back to School 2017 challenge.

Below are details of how to take part.


Get out there and get training!

You then need to choose how you are going to complete the distance. You need to choose three different ways all beginning with the letter 'r' - hence the name of the challenge! This could include running, riding or rowing to name three. However, we are looking for creative ways of completing the distance. For example, why not walk whilst reading, compete in a relay or simply race!  

Whatever you choose, you must do this between 15th August and 30th September 2017. Once you have completed your race, submit your results online by clicking here. We will ask you to submit proof of you completing the race. This can be in a variety of formats include Parkrun times, Fitbit and apps including Run Keeper. Alternatively, just send us a photo. If you are not sure how to do this, contact us at [email protected]

You must submit your time and proof by midday on Saturday 7th October 2017.


We will email you to confirm that we have received your time and proof and that your finisher's medal is on its way to you. Once all times are received, we will also email you to confirm how much money we have donated to United World Schools - our chosen charity for this race.


Please send us your photos of taking part and any stories that we can feature on our blog.
