This Challenge is to ditch the road and gym for trail running. Go off-road and into nature!
Get up and get outside on the trails! No time limit, no distance set, just get off-road and enjoy your morning run!
If you run on the roads and pavements day in, day out clocking up the miles trying to shave seconds off your personal best, it’s time for a change. Get off road. Go for a run in the country. The object is to get out for at least 2 hours. It doesn’t matter...
Get off the pavement and take it to the trails. Run at least a 5k on natural surface trails. If you have never done this before, beware roots, rocks, crevises, and such. It is very easy to turn your ankle when you are first starting out on trails and haven...
Get off the roads and out onto the trails. Run in an organised off road half marathon or find your own route on the trails, bridleways and hills.
Register for a trail race of any length
Go for a run. A run in the wet. A run in the mud. A run where you know there's no avoiding getting seriously muddy. And then - make sure you run through every puddle, every bog, every bit of good clean dirt you can find! Don't forget to tell everyone ab...
If you're lucky enough to live near the coast, take advantage of the challenges it has to offer to runners. Often lots of hills and hard terrain but with a backdrop of inspiring views to push you further!
Get some shorts on, find an off road path and go get muddy, or dusty, or wet, or all three

10K nightime run through woodland.
Setting a good time is fun, but it is always great to go back to the same event a year or two later and see if you can beat your previous effort. The challenge is to improve your time in 3 events that you ran either last year or the year before.
It's the middle of winter... but the morning has dawned cloudless and still... you know what that means... FROST!!! Get out there and run in the white... 10km or more... if possible post a pic of the whiteness.
This challenge is for people just starting out and aiming to do around three 5k trail runs a week. Head out to your local trail or park - get in the big outdoors and get some mud on those trail shoes!
Get out in the countryside and run, walk or cycle through some lush woodland. Photograph the scene and post on the challenge page to complete
While out for a trail run every time you come to a fallen tree – get on it and run along the trunk.
This Challenge is to ditch the road and gym for trail running. Go off-road and into nature for no less than an hour!
Simple.. (or is it?) just go for it
