It wasn’t the start to 2021 that any of us planned; just when we caught a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel, our hopes were dashed again.  But we’ve got to carry on and be positive, we’ve done it before and we can do it again!   

January gives us a chance to set goals and ambitions for the year ahead. To help you start the year strong and build a routine you can maintain year-round, we’ve got a series of running challenges and events to set your sights on.

With the current circumstances and our runners’ safety always at the forefront of our event planning, we are looking forward to bringing you a new and adapted Great Run Series later in the year. Our calendar looks a bit different with some events later in the year than usual, but we’re pulling out all the stops to make it a great year of running. 
View all Great Run Series events here.

Great Run Solo virtual running challenges can keep you motivated year round, help you prepare for your Great Run start line and see you through your year of running. 
Find your Great Run Solo challenge here.


Now more than ever we need to prioritise our mental and physical health by staying active and supporting others. Whether it’s lining up again on a start line or taking on a virtual challenge, be part of a community who all find strength in one common thing... running!  

Be your greatest in 2021, whatever it throws at you.  We’re with you every step of the way.
