Marathon Challenge 2020

We are delighted to announce details of our Virtual Marathon Challenge 2020 for schools and groups.

This challenge has been specially launched as a result of the recent school closures and the prospect of weeks with children staying at home. Our marathon challenge is a straightforward but motivating concept. Throughout the next few months, run the distance equivalent to a marathon, not in one go but over a period of time. Keep track of your distance as you go along and when you've reached the magic number, we will send this fantastic personalised medal shown below. 

Marathon Challenge 2020

To enter this challenge, costs start at just £2.99 per person.  Parents can pay for their child to take part or,  alternatively,  if you would like to use your Sports Premium funding, parents can just sign them up using one of our specially created pages.  All you need to do is promote the challenge to your school community, we do the rest for you!

Drumoak Primary School - https://www.ukschoolrun.com/enterarace/prod_7120038-Marathon-Challenge-Drumoak-Primary-School.html and Thorn Grove Primary School -  https://www.ukschoolrun.com/thorngroveprimaryschool.html are just the lastest schools to sign up.

The personalised medal shown opposite comes with a plain navy ribbon.

Upon completing the challenge, parents simply submit evidence to us via a link on our website. This evidence can be in a variety of forms. This includes - fitbit, phone trackers, home made trackers and photographs. We are happy for people to be creative with their recording and we will be pleased to add photos of any homemade trackers to our website for everyone to see.

When evidence of completing the challenge is received, we send medals directly to home addresses, again taking control of all the organisation and admin work. Furthermore, we also email out a personalised certificate to every competitor to take back into school, hopefully later this academic year.

If you are interested or would like to find out more, please complete the form below and we will endeavour to get back to you in 24 hours.
