Join the TENacious Challenge with Raceways this August!

Raceways is urging you to embrace the new government-led fitness drive by getting active and showing your TENacious side this August, whilst also celebrating the 10th birthday of Kids Run Free.

The recent lockdown period caused by COVID-19 has seen gyms and leisure facilities closed, with lots of people struggling to maintain fitness regimes and a healthy lifestyle. These restrictions were lifted earlier this month, and now people are being urged to get back into regular exercise and embrace an improved diet in the fight against obesity.

Raceways was set up to help people support and fundraise for national running charity Kids Run Free, meaning the money generated by the Alcester 10k, the Leamington Spa Half Marathon and the Warwick Reindeer Run funds free running opportunities for hundreds of thousands of children in schools and parks across the UK.

To help continue to fund Kids Run Free, we would love you to commit to a TENacious goal in August – choose how far you want to push yourself! Can you run a 10km in August? What about 10 miles? Don’t fancy that? How about 10km every day on your bike? Or 10 press ups and sit-ups every hour of every day for 31 days? Well, that last one sounds a bit extreme, but you get the idea!

Sign up at the link below for just £10, and get started!

We will also be offering race registrations as prizes across three categories – ‘Most Impressive Challenge’, ‘Most Creative Route’ and ‘Best Fancy Dress’. One winner per category will win an entry to all three of our 2021 races – the Leamington Spa Half Marathon, Alcester 10k and Warwick Grand National Run! *

Kids Run Free – partially funded by Raceways – operates two running-based initiatives;mMarathon Kids in school time, and Park Kids at weekends and during the school holidays. More than 140,000 children have benefited from Kids Run Free over the past 10 years, and in the last academic year children ran more than 365,000km!

For just £10, you can be part of something incredible that helps give even more children the opportunity to run with their friends and family for free.

Challenge yourself, and show us how TENacious you are this August!
