Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can you run on a treadmill?
Yes, we are fans of fresh air and muddy puddles, but appreciate it’s not possible for everyone to get out, so take a snap of the run, showing distance and time.
Q: Can this be done over a number of runs?
No, our Run events (5km & 10km) need to be completed in one go, that is not to say there isn’t time for a rest, just don’t go home half way through.
Q: Can I walk instead of run?
Yes, we encourage everyone to try and run as much as they sensibly can but appreciate not everyone is in a position to complete a distance run, but still want to participate in the challenge. We have set time limits on the events so you’ll have to keep walking, but they do allow completion at an average walking pace.
