Purple Pacers are back!

After popular demand we're back for another Purple Pacers virtual running series. During the latest COVID-19 lockdown we will be spending more time at home and it is really important to keep on top of our mental well-being.

Your physical health has an impact on how you feel. We know the lockdown can make us fall into unhealthy habits which make us feel worse. Joining the Purple Pacers will help you get into a healthy routine whilst supporting our NHS heroes.

How it works

Choose your distance and complete a sponsored 5k, 10k, half marathon or marathon by running, jogging or walking at your own pace. With a medal for each event why not go the distance and take on all four to complete the set? 

We appreciate that staying active can be difficult, especially with work or family to look after, so you can complete your distance at your own pace, over a few days or even weeks.

Whether it's your first couch to 5k or you're a seasoned runner, take on the challenge your way. You could even make it feel like race day and join friends or family to complete your challenges together (in line with government guidelines).
