Virtual Running Challenges
Great Run Solo virtual running challenges are designed to keep you moving, push you further, and to help you train for your next Great Run event.
There are a range of virtual running challenges across a series of distances, and a beginners Couch to 5k, ensuring there is a challenge for everyone. There is also a junior distance challenge available for the budding running stars of the future.
You can enter more than one Great Run Solo challenge, so when you’ve completed one distance you can take the next step up & earn your next medal. Challenges cost £10-£15 to join and your entry fee includes a unique finishers medal, access to training plans and our online tracking tool & support throughout the challenge.
Find your next virtual challenge below and join Great Run Solo – we’re behind you every step of the way!
Celebrate our 40th Birthday by travelling back in time with us to take part in the original Great North Run - wherever you are! GNR81 is free to enter.
