Race for a million medal

It’s all about the bling!

Everyone who takes part will get an exclusive Race for a Million medal.

What about swimming?

We know swimming is tough at the moment, so we're mixing it up a bit and if pools aren't available you can sub the swimming part out for a special circuit training session that we've created just for this event.

When can I do it?

The event itself is entirely online and is happening throughout May 2021, so you choose when you want to do it and how you want to. All at the same time or with days in between each session it’s up to you.
