Sign up for the Great Run Solo December Challenge

Sign up for the Great Run Solo December Challenge!

Brought to you by the organisers of the Great North Run and Great Scottish Run, the Great Run Solo December Challenge is a fun seasonal virtual event to keep your running routine on track in December.  The challenge is to complete the 12 runs of Christmas (or more runs if you wish) of any distance between 1 and 25 December.

  • It starts on 1 Dec and ends on 25 Dec
  • It costs £15 to join
  • It’s suitable for all abilities as people can walk, jog or run – there’s no set distance to cover
  • All entrants will be rewarded with a unique festive medal
  • Why not create Strava art in a festive shape, take a Christmas selfie or add Christmas decorations to your running trainers?  Download the Active Advent Calendar for more seasonal suggestions to enhance your run!
  • There are kids challenges and an optional distance challenge too!

The challenge starts on 1 December

…and you’ll need to join here by the closing date of 8 December at 10am.  But don’t worry, you can still join the next Accumulator challenge which starts in January – and we have free places in the Great North Run next September 2021 and Great Scottish Run 10K next October.  We’re sorry, but free charity places for this event are not available.

Ready to sign up?

Once you’ve got your place, please register here as a supporter of Prostate Scotland.  It just takes a couple of minutes.  We’ll support you in your fundraising and send you out a Prostate Scotland t shirt and water bottle.

Other virtual fundraising ideas

We’ve updated our virtual fundraising pages to include a range of ideas to suit different interests.  Head to  Prost80: virtual fundraising ideas

  • Other easy ways to support Prostate Scotland – some ideas that take up less time and effort but can still raise awareness or some money for our cause.
  • Our range of Christmas e-Cards is launching soon – watch this space!  We’re asking our supporters to make a donation with the money they would otherwise spend on cards and stamps.  You can choose a design, add your own message, then share your own festive greetings with friends, family or colleagues you know on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or WhatsApp.

Our new services for men recently diagnosed with prostate cancer

To complement the care you receive from the medical experts, Prostate Scotland is currently developing a range of support and wellbeing services to help men across Scotland navigate prostate cancer and disease.  It is called our COMPASS project and in time it will cover information, courses, exercise programmes, workshops and support services.  Head to prostatescotland.org.uk/help-and-support-for-you for more details.
