Cancer Research UK Virtual Winter Run

January 2020

The Cancer Research UK Virtual Winter Run is the new way to keep running during January, and earn a fabulous medal for your efforts.

Following the smash hit success of the original Winter Run Series, runners can now take part wherever they are based, and receive their medal in the post.

What do I have to do?

London Virtual Winter Run 2020

Not able to be at Cancer Research UK London Winter Run 2020? Then don’t worry you can still take part from wherever you are in the world because the London Virtual Winter Run is back for 2020!

To register all you have to do is set up a fundraising page with us here and fundraise a minimum of £50 for Cancer Research UK as you complete the monthly Strava Challenges.

For January, the challenge is to run 10km a week and if you want to receive a London Virtual Winter Run 2020 medal for your efforts you can choose to purchase one here for £8.00. Entries for the January Challenge will close on Monday 6th of January when February’s running challenge will be announced and opened for registration.

The London Virtual Winter Run promises to be a fun way for all to train with a purpose during the Festive period whilst raising money for CRUK and gives all those who can’t be at the main event on the 9th of Feb the chance to still be a part of it from a far.

How does it work?

You’ll need to track your runs using Strava, Map My Fitness or Fitbit.

These apps are compatible with the Cancer Research UK Virtual Winter Run, so you’ll be able to see how your challenge is coming along.

Once you’ve completed your final run, a shiny top class medal will drop through the door a few days later.
