Santa Virtual Ultra Challenge

Join us this December for a very special challenge

The days may be shorter and the nights may be drawing in, but we think it's a great time to get out there and moving. So much so that we've set up our very own virtual challenge between 1 and 24 December - a great new addition to the UK running calendar. Book now >

You won't have to travel to a race; simply register, download Strava to your phone and connect any GPS watch to see your results get automatically added to our SVUC results tables. Even better, you don't have to be the fittest or fastest to take part - we're holding three challenges:

Challenge 1: Run or walk a minimum 50km over a single day, anytime between 1 and 24 December to earn a special Santa Virtual Ultra Challenge medal and festive buff

Challenge 2: Run or walk as far as you can within a single day during the challenge period

Challenge 3: See how far you can run or walk over the challenge period.
