April Accumulator Challenge

The Run

April Accumulator Challenge

Spring into action this April! Complete 16 runs (or more) and earn yourself an egg-stra special medal.

Go the Egg-stra

This month we challenge you tgo the egg-stra mile and put a spring in your step for a fantastic month of virtual running. No one needs an eggscuse to eat chocolate, so with longer daylight hours this month we reckon that we can not only challenge ourselves to a few eggs-tra miles, but I’m sure we can fit in a few eggs-tra treats too. 

Complete the ‘sweet 16’ runs (or more) and you will be rewarded with a unique finisher’s medal and digital certificate. There’s also an optional distance challenge, with a bespoke digital certificate awarded to anyone who completes a distance award. 

The challenge starts on April and ends on 30 April.  Don’t be an April Fool, make sure you get signed up to this month’s challenge in order to receive a cracking medal! 

Entries are now closed.
