Junior Christmas Accumulator Challenge
Little stars its time to shine! The Junior Christmas Accumulator challenge has arrived.
With the school holidays approaching, we’ve got just the thing to keep your youngsters busy and active in December.
The challenge is to complete 8 (or more) runs between 1 & 25 December, marking off each run on our tracker sheet below. Yule also receive a digital certificate with the number of runs you completed and the distance you covered.
The challenge costs £10 to join – the challenge joining fee includes a unique finishers medal and access to our downloadable activity sheets.
All Juniors will receive a tree-mendous Christmas medal and you can also download a certificate below to print and display. Creative prize-giving ceremonies are encouraged!
Entries are now closed.
Parents please note. Please don’t use your own Great Run login to enter children into the Junior challenge – this has your name and date of birth associated with it.
Use their existing login (if they have taken part in an event before) or follow the link to register on entry, and create a username and password for them.
Your Christmas Reward
Challenge participants will receive a special Christmas medal (it includes a Christmas decoration attachment) which we aim to arrive in time* to wear with pride and hang on the Christmas tree.
The medal will be delivered to the adult who completes the entry, for them to award once the challenge has been completed.
Note: For international runners, there is an additional £4.75 charge to cover medal postage.
*Medals should arrive week commencing 13 December.
