The Simplyhealth Great Aberdeen Run (25 August) provides an opportunity to inspire the next generation to keep fit and take on a running challenge.

That’s why we’ve created the Aberdeen Activity Challenge; a non-competitive, cumulative running challenge for kids. Not only will it develop healthy habits to exercise regularly, but its lots of fun also!

The challenge is simple: complete the Half Marathon course, 1 run at a time. You can do your run anywhere at any time. Every time a run is completed participants colour in the section on their Activity Tracker until they reach the finish line! Complete 13 runs to conquer the Aberdeen Activity Challenge.

Everyone who completes the challenge can download a certificate for their efforts. We’re also offering a special prize for all challenge participants who take part in the Simplyhealth Great Aberdeen Family Run on Sunday 25 August!
