Poppy Challenge 2017

Join the 2017 poppy challenge and help us smash the 2016 targets!


Sorry, this race is sold out!

This challenge is different from our usual races and is live between 1st – 30th November. In the month, run, swim, walk and cycle as far as you can to add to our collective km total. Our aim is to complete 88,824.6km. 888,246 is a significant number, as represents the number of poppies displayed at the Tower of London last year to remember the fallen soldiers in WW1.

Submissions for your full month will be required 5th December at 5pm to claim your medal and add your distances to the total. Examples of proof include running/cycling/walking apps, Garmin photos, Fitbit and VivoSmart data etc. You must submit a minimum of 33km to qualify for this challenge.

A 20% donation from every race fee will be donated to the British Legion.

Wait for the post to arrive with your medal!
