October 30 Minute Dash

This month we are racing against the clock to see how far you can go in just 30 minutes.

Unlike most of our races, your result will be based on your distance, rather than your time, with those who run furthest in 30 minutes winning the most points (go to our races page and scroll down to see how the points work). And, of course, everyone who takes part will receive one of this month’s Bonus Race medals.

Wonder Run Challenge

Ever wondered how far you could run? Now’s your chance to find out by logging your longest run with this year’s Wonder Run Challenge!

How It Works:

This challenge is all about the distance, so it doesn’t matter how fast you go, as long as it is one continuous effort (long walks and runs with walk breaks are allowed). For every kilometre that you complete, you will earn 2 Bonus Points for next month’s Leader Board and, of course, everyone gets a medal!

Plus, as a special bonus, one entry entitles you to submit a result each month until the end of the year, earning you even more points for this year’s Leader Board competition.

Points Guide:

  • 5K = 10 Points
  • 10K = 20 points
  • 10 Miler (16.09K) = 32 points
  • Half Marathon (21.1K) = 42 points
  • 20 Miler (32.18K) = 64 Points
  • Marathon (42.2K) = 84 points

These points are just a guide for standard distances, but you can complete any distance you like, no minimum or maximum!
