Each challenge costs £10 to take part in and The Great Run Company will donate all profits to the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal, which meets the immediate needs of patients, staff and volunteers affected by coronavirus.

Once their overall distance is completed and logged online, each runner will be rewarded with a unique #GreatRunSolo medal to celebrate their achievement.

  • Each challenge begins on a Monday and lasts for 7 or 28 days
  • All distances cost £10 to participate in, with all profits donated to NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal
