Running From City
Group Of Runners

We try and offer a range of challenges for all abilities, and most of our challenges can be adapted to meet the challenger's needs. We are always looking to expand our range of challenges to include other activities, and are delighted when a member of our community puts forward a suggestion.

We take a concept for a challenge and create the perfect medal to represent the challenge, it's theme and the effort of the challenger to achieve the medal. This is the incentive but we want to be more than just a shop. We want to expand our platform so people can get the support they need from us and the community.
