virtual running challenge faqs

Who can sign up?

Anyone can sign up. Our virtual running challenge is for any runner or walker. You can choose between 75 to 1000km and we want you to reach your target. 

Can I start a challenge halfway through the month?


Yes, the start date is from 1st December 2021, if you are signing up for a distance over 250km then you may want to start from the beginning of the month. If you are signing up to a lower distance then you can sign up anytime until 20th April 2022. 

This is a 3-month challenge, so plenty of time to complete your distance.

Can I amend my distance?

Yes, if you feel that the distance you have chosen is not right for you, you can either upgrade or downgrade your distance. We want you to enjoy your challenge. If you feel that you are racing ahead of your prediction, don’t worry. Simply contact and we will be happy to adjust your target accordingly. Similarly, if you think the distance you’ve chosen is out of reach, then we can decrease your goal to make sure all your effort hasn’t gone to waste. We want you to succeed and we are here to support you.

The cut-off date to swap your distance is 20th April 2022. This gives you enough time to complete your chosen distance.

I’m an international runner. Can I join?

Of course - it’s a virtual challenge. We would love to welcome you into the Run To Be family. And for everyone to spread the word to your friends and family. Also, don’t forget to join our Strava Club to map your progress with our other runners. 

Can I walk?

Yes. At RTB, we feel that any exercise is good exercise for the mind and body, so all challenges can include a daily walk. Just remember to record your evidence.

I got an injury halfway through the challenge - can I have a refund?

No. Sorry.

When do I have to submit evidence of my runs?

Evidence submission opens on the 1st of June and closes on the 7th of June 2022.

How do I submit my evidence?

Evidence can be submitted via our Strava Club page or via email at

What will I receive if I successfully complete my challenge?


You'll get a lovely, shiny medal that has been designed specifically for RTB.
