The Runderwear Festival of Running is a fun event to try and help us stay motivated. Please enter into the spirit of it by choosing a route that seems 'fair' regarding elevation and wind direction. Please also run the race in the great outdoors rather than on a treadmill. We are not banning treadmills, given the current COVID restrictions, but we do suggest that, in the interest of fairness, you should run the race in the great outdoors where possible.
Our event partner Results Base have a step-by-step guide to entering an event and uploading your result.
