Taking part costs just £15, which includes access to our cracking tracking tool, a majestic medal, and a digital certificate for finishers.

Just make sure you do at least 12 runs (or walks) by 31 March to smash this spring challenge.   You’ll receive your very own Spring medal as a lasting memento of all the miles you’ve covered. Arriving in April, you can wear it with pride for the rest of 2024!

(Optional) Accumulator Distance Award

Fancy an extra challenge? We have three optional distances for you to aim for. Depending how far you travel over your 12 (or more) runs/walks, we’ll award you a special digital finisher’s certificate to download and share.

  • 30 miles – Easter Egg-cellence
  • 60 miles – A space-ial achievement
  • 100 miles – Chick you out!

From 9am on 1st March, you can log your runs with our online tracker, or use your own tracking app or device to record your activity if you prefer.  Once you’ve completed all of your runs and reached your target distance, simply submit your results and we’ll have your digital finisher’s certificate in a bloomin’ quick time.
