Great Run SO21 – January Accumulator Challenge

Great Run SO21 – January Accumulator Challenge

January 1 - January 31

For most of us 2020 started out with plenty of promise but ended up being one of the toughest years in memory. The start of 2021 brings new hope and promise, but it also brings the pressure of New Year’s Resolutions. A quarter of Brits will make a New Year’s resolution, but most won’t keep them… The Great North Run January accumulator will keep you motivated and help you start the year strong as you mean to go on!

The challenge is to complete 21 activities of any distance in January – it’s a challenge for all abilities that celebrates all activity. Walk, jog, run, or do a mix of everything, it all counts. Complete 21 activities or more and we’ll reward your efforts with a snazzy 2 in 1 medal (it doubles up as a fridge magnet!).

For those already firing on all cylinders, there is an optional distance element with a bespoke digital certificate awarded to anyone who completes a distance award.

The challenge starts on 1 January and ends on 31 January, and you have until Monday 11 January at 10am to sign up, when entries close.

2021, the year of the comeback!
