THE THURSDAY CHALLENGE 2.0
Keeping you moving (and smiling) in March with unique weekly running or walking challenges.
Every Thursday Secret London Runs will set a new unique weekly challenge to keep you moving through March. 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's a great community to share the challenge with and prizes each week for the best entry.
FIRST CHALLENGE ANNOUNCED: 4TH MARCH

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.
"The perfect challenge series to stay motivated, connect with other people and combine creativity with exercise. Vanessa came up with creative challenges every week which were great fun to participate in."
JENNY CHAPMAN, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW
"Absolutely loved the six weeks of The Thursday Challenge. It motivated me to get out of the house and moving more. I really enjoyed planning my trips out and have found some absolute gems of loveliness where I live, which I wouldn't otherwise have seen! I'll definitely be back for the next lot"
GILLIAN, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW
"Absolutely loved it and would highly recommend Secret London Runs to everyone I meet... In fact I do."

WHAT YOU GET
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 £7:
4 unique and fun challenges, one sent to you each Thursday.
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. You can also email your pics in if you'd prefer.
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!
