RunChallenge at Shipley Park!

7th Nov 2013

Run it, Find it, Answer it!

Run Challenge is the event to try this autumn to motivate yourself and friends to get active in the great outdoors.  Amber Valley Village Games are teaming up with RunChallenge to host an event at Shipley Country Park, Derbyshire (DE75 7GX) on Saturday 16th November at 10am for a 10.30am event start.

RunChallenge is a running activity combined with a fun question and answer challenge.  Using a simple map and a time limit of 45 minutes you need to get as many correct answers as possible.  Every correct answer earns you points and you need to get back before the time runs out or you lose points for every minute you are late!  Everyone starts and finishes at the same time and place, so it is a great way to socialise and make new friends. There is also the opportunity to join forces with your friends and create teams.

Teams are made up of 4 runners who can either enter individually online or go to www.runchallenge.org.uk  for a team sign up form.  There are fantastic prizes up for grabs from running kit and equipment specialists, Up & Running.

Beth Turner from Amber Valley Village Games said: “RunChallenge is like a ‘Treasure Hunt for Adults’. It is something that is a little bit different to pounding the pavements or running on the treadmill. It is a great way to socialise, be active and improve your fitness. No experience of map reading is necessary, all you need is a sense of adventure - so why not join forces with your friends and enter online?”
