THE THURSDAY CHALLENGE
A monthly challenge to keep running fresh and interesting.
On the first Thursday of each month Secret London Runs will set a free unique challenge to keep spicing up your running/walking.
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 month for the best entry.
1. FIND OUT ABOUT EACH MONTH'S CHALLENGE
Get email alerts each month when we announce a new challenge. We'll also keep you updated on other entries to the competition and the winners' prizes each month when you sign up for Thursday Challenge emails.

"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."
AMANDA, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW
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!
