The Reward

December Accumulator Challenge

Complete 12 runs (or more) to earn yourself a medal!

What you get

All challenge participants will receive a show stopping medal to reward your efforts;  the medal is a Christmas tree decoration and it might just be your favourite delivery through the post-box this Christmas.

Our aim is for all medals to arrive before Christmas* so that you can hang it on your Christmas tree with pride as soon as you complete the challenge.

If you submit your results at the end of the challenge (this is optional), you will receive a personalised digital certificate to download and display with pride.

Note: For international runners, there is an additional £4.75 charge to cover medal postage.

*Medals should arrive week commencing 12 December.
