You can take on your virtual challenge whenever and wherever you want, which means you do not need to worry about last-minute changes or cancellations. You can choose the distance you want to run -  from 3km, 5km, 10km or 21.1km to complete before the end of 2021.

All participants will receive a u3a medal, specially designed around a run in the park because however fast/slow you are, as long as you get out to exercise, you're doing a great job! This colourful medal will be yours once you complete your chosen distance.
