On your marks, get set....ACHE
We’ve got a brand new challenge that really takes the biscuit. It’s a chance for all you runners to unleash your inner star runner & earn yourself a guilt free treat every Tuesday night.
Complete a baker’s dozen of runs (13 or more) of any distance in November and earn yourself a mouthwateringly awesome medal.
The icing on the cake is an optional distance challenge, with a bespoke digital certificate awarded to anyone who completes a distance award. The challenge starts on 1 November and ends on 30 November. You can join anytime from now up to Monday 9 November at 10am, when entries close.
It costs £15 to join – your challenge joining fee includes a unique finishers medal, access to training plans & tips, access to our online tracking tool, and support throughout the challenge. Whether you’re tempering or tapering, why not rise to the challenge as a fun way to keep moving & motivated through November.
This challenge has all the ingredients you need to be your greatest in November… but have you got the recipe for success?
The monthly accumulator challenge is for runners aged +15.
You can run at any pace and distance comfortable for you. Complete a minimum of 13 runs by 30 November to finish the challenge, and you will receive a mouthwateringly awesome medal and digital certificate.
There are three optional distance challenges. Depending on how far you run over your 13 (or more!) runs we will award you a bespoke digital finishers certificate to download and share:
You can use our online tracker to log your runs - live from 1 November - or use your own tracking app or device to record your activity. Once you have completed 13 runs (or more) and your target distance, simply submit your results and confirm that you have completed the challenge.
Each week we’ll select our star runners and showcase their showstopping runs on this webpage & across our social media pages. Share your runs with us on our social media pages using #GreatRunSolo.
Complete the challenge by 30 November and we’ll send you a medal that is almost too hot to handle. Digital certificates are available to download when you submit your results.
Please be patient as medals will arrive approx. 1 month after you have completed the challenge. For international runners, there is an additional £3.50 charge to cover medal postage.
To keep you running!
To keep you motivated and smiling (not grimacing!), we’ve created a series of fun extras to see you through your month of running.
Finish the challenge off in style on Monday 30 November! Build up your distance over the month and aim to do your longest run on your final outing.
13 runs is a lot of running… and plenty of time for you to complete the challenge checklist.
How many can you complete?
We’re cooking up a November running playlist and we need your help! Add your favourite tunes to our Spotify playlist and then enjoy the soundtrack on your next run.

Hill sprints are the bread & butter of all good training programmes! Add an extra pinch of sweat into the mix by including six 30 second hill sprints to one of your runs!
Share your running pics & videos with us on social using #GreatRunSolo to appear in our November review video.
