Race At Your Pace is an online motivational challenge. You select the distance you want to cover over the course of one calendar month, and then complete it anywhere in the world, entirely at your pace.
There are no set times, no minimum distance for each run and no problem if you aren’t able to squeeze in the miles on a busy day. You complete your month’s challenge as and when you want!
This depends on the option you select when you register. There are two options, medal only or medal and top. If you opt for the medal only challenge and you successfully complete the miles you pledged, you will receive a well-deserved shiny medal. But, if you decide to go for the medal and top option, and you finish all your miles, then not only will you get the all important shiny medal, but you will also receive a compression top too! The benefit of this option is, if for any reason you are unable to complete your challenge, you still get the compression top in the post! Win win!
Not at all! Many people choose to walk all or some of their challenge, whereas others prefer to only record the distance covered when they go out on specific runs. It’s your race, at your pace!
Absolutely you can, you can enter any of our challenges!
The suggested size guide is below. Please bear in mind the tops are compression tops and are designed to have a tight fit.
Small – 84cm
Medium – 88cm
Large – 92cm
XL – 96cm
2XL – 102cm
3XL – 106cm
The compression tops are sent out at the end of the challenge. All you need to do is complete the evidence form and let us know if you were able to complete your challenge. If you were, we will send your medal and top, if not just your top.
Of course you can! Please enter regardless of where you live, the event is open to everyone, everywhere. Unfortunately as it is more expensive to post your medal and/or compression t-shirt overseas we have to charge an additional £5 which will be applied at the end of your registration.

Even if you sign up after 1st of the month, any miles you have covered from the start of the month will count towards your challenge. We always advise you to sign up as early as you can though – we can’t guarantee late entries or challenge availability.
That’s brilliant! We will always try to change your distance if we can, but this is subject to availability on the distance you want to change to. If you send a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org we will see what we can do. The deadline for this is 25th of the month.
Sorry to hear this! If you were taking part in one of the ‘medal and top’ challenges then please ensure you complete the end of race form that we email. All you have to do is click ‘no’ to say you weren’t able to complete your miles. This is crucial as we won’t send anything to you until you fill out this form, you need to let us know if you would like your medal and your top, or just the top.
We are unable to transfer from one month to the next due to the nature of the event. However, we can offer you the option to reduce the number of miles on your challenge, subject to challenge availability. Please let us know by 25th of the month as we aren’t able to make changes after this date.
Congratulations! Towards the end of the month we send out an email with a link to an evidence form. It’s on this form that you can let us know whether you have been able to complete your challenge. It’s really important that you complete this form, even if you haven’t been able to complete your miles. This is so we know what we have to send you.
You just need to fill in a few details, tick to say if you’ve been successful, and submit your evidence if you have it. Then, hit ‘submit’, and we will get your items on their way to you!
At the end of the month, we will send you an email asking you to complete a quick form. On this form we ask you to tick whether or not you were able to complete all the miles you’d pledged to cover, and if so to upload evidence of this. Which leads us to…
Evidence comes in many forms; whether you use a phone app, a spreadsheet, or simply write down the miles you’ve run on a good old notepad, it all counts! Please click here for more information on evidence, as well as some examples. Please remember that any evidence you submit does not determine the medal you receive, it just proves that you completed the miles on the challenge you registered for.
