To keep you motivated through the darker days we thought we'd set you a Christmas competition.

Between the 15-21 December we want to see your winter running photos on the Great Run Instagram page; all you need to do is strike your best winter running pose, post it on Instagram and tag it with #WinterRunning.

Don't forget to follow us!

You can post as many pictures as you want!

We will select the best #WinterRunning image from each of the 7 days to win a prize.
