THE THURSDAY CHALLENGE
Keeping you moving (and smiling) this lockdown with 6 unique weekly running or walking challenges.
Every Thursday (starting on 7th Jan), Secret London Runs will set you a new unique weekly challenge to keep you moving throughout this lockdown. It's all virtual so you can take place anywhere in the world.
The challenges will never be about speed - they'll be designed to keep you moving in a fun way. There'll be prizes each week and a unique personalised finisher's postcard with your photo highlights sent to you when the 6 weeks is up.
TELL ME MORE
With all the restrictions in place, exercise is still allowed - but are you getting tired of the same old routes? We want to make walking and running interesting for you. And give you access to our fun-loving community.
Homeschooling? All our activities will be suitable for you and your kids to do together - a great way to encourage them to get some fresh air.
Whether you're exercising alone, with your kids/household or a running/walking buddy, each challenge will take no longer than an hour, you'll be able to do it from your home and you can complete it at any time during the week.
LET'S TALK MONEY
The Thursday Challenge is free to anyone who needs it to be (just sign up and select the free option, no questions asked). But if you can afford it, we're asking for a small contribution to cover our costs. Secret London Runs is struggling in a virtual-only world, and we really appreciate your support to keep these challenges going. For £8:
6 unique and fun challenges emailed to you each week.
A Personalised Finisher's Postcard of your Thursday Challenge highlight photos sent in the post.
Prizes (brand new Secret London Runs tees) every week for the challenge winner. Winners will never be based on speed.
Access to an amazing online community in the Secret London Runs Connect Facebook group.
Accountability to stay active and keep having fun. Share all your pics from each challenge in the Facebook group and Instagram. There's also a short form to complete once you've done all 6.
Do we have to run?
No. The challenges will be suitable for walkers too. The goal is to keep you moving when it's hard to motivate yourself to do so.
Can children join in?
Absolutely! All the challenges are child-friendly. And actually one of the reasons we've launched the Thursday Challenge is to help give your kids some motivation to get ouside.
How do we upload our challenges?
Share the photos from each challenge in the Secret London Runs Connect Facebook group or tag us on Instagram @secretlondonruns #thethursdaychallenge.
And I can really take part anywhere?
Yes! Our challenges are designed for you to take part anywhere in the world. If you are in a very very rural location, you may need to adapt some of the challenges, but there will be options for you in every challenge.
What if I need to self-isolate?
Really sorry if that's the case. Just catch up when you're back in action!

JENNY, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW
"Fun and inclusive event. Really easy to follow the instructions and upload photos. A great way to involve all the family in different locations. Can’t wait for the next one!"
MICHELLE, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW
"A great event. We loved running round trying to collect the items that are always in plain sight but hard to find when you need them. It really made us more aware of our surroundings and was great fun. Would love to do it again."
MATT, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW
"My husband and I did the 90 Minute Dash twice now and had so much fun both times. It‘s a great way to get out a bit and explore your neighbourhood. And you don‘t have to run at all and still find a lot of stuff."
