AdventRunning 2015 – activities & prizes


Welcome everyone to AdventRunning 2015

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 12 months since the inaugural #runforsprouts runfest. BUT we’re back. Bigger and better than ever.

So a few things. There aren’t many rules but we have broadened our horizons and for 2015, it’s not just about RUNNING, it’s about being ACTIVE. So, this year we are challenging you to run, swim, spin, yoga, cycle or whatever. In essence, be active for 30 minutes a day for 25 days, if you can. Being active is more important than the activity. Be creative, listen to your body and do what you can. Oh and tell your friends. It’s never too late to join.

Every day we will be giving away a spot prize(s) for a photo/ video/ blog/ post that best captures that day’s activity. There will be themes each day so make sure you visit FB, Twitter, IG or our website to keep up-to-date. To whet your appetite we have some amazing prizes from adidas Running​, adidas Sport eyewear​, Runderwear​, ashmei​, The North Face​, The Redchurch Brewery​, Pact Coffee​, British Triathlon​, The Running Works​, Epson​ Watches and many, many, more.

Christmas day prize – ‘the money can’t buy’ place at the Virgin London Marathon 2016, provided by adidas

Also, we are excited to tell you about THE Christmas day prize. Long time supporter adidas are providing one entrant with a ‘money can’t buy’ entry to the Virgin Money London Marathon + training kit. If that wasn’t enough then adidas sport eyewear will be making sure the winner is looking cool before and after the race; and James and I will be providing a full-bespoke training plan. This amazing prize will be awarded to the best photo/ video/ blog taken during the ENTIRE 25 days. BUT here’s the catch you must tag your posts with #boostlondon (and @adventrunning #adventrunning otherwise we can’t include you in the draw). Remember the more times you post, the better chance you have of winning. Pretty exciting or what?

For those in London we will also be arranging a number of special events. All are FREE and everyone is welcome. Please check our website or the events tab on FB for details. A number of these events are exclusive and limited numbers using Check each event for details (Facebook events and on our website).

We are also excited to be working with The Running Works and adidas26rs run club​ who have regular runs from their stores in Houndsditch and Bishopsgate respectively. Details of these runs can be found on their sites. Both are super welcoming, so if you need other people to run with then check them out.

That leaves little more than to say, we love this community and we hope you have a fab AdventRunning. Please post your photos, tell us about your good runs, your bad runs and if it’s getting hard, share your doubts. With AR you will never be alone and many will be in the same position as you. As the saying goes, “a problem shared, is a problem halved.”

One last request… if you’ve got this far. If you love AR, you could show your appreciation by voting for us in the Running Awards 2016. It takes two minutes to register and would mean a huge amount to us. We are nominated in Publications & Online > Online community > Advent Running
