How it works


Choose your race

Once you've decided which race(s) to enter, you'll now be able to create your profile. This will be viewable by anyone watching the progress of the event.

During the race

When the race opens you can start your run! (You don't have to complete the race in one run) When you finish your run that day, simply let us know the distance you ran and we will move your pin that distance on the progress map.


Completing the race

When you have accumulated the distance of the race you entered, you will have completed the challenge. This can be over as many runs/days as you want, as long as it's completed before the designated cutoff point (exactly like our normal events!).  We'll then send out your Bespoke Award as soon as they arrive!

Leaderboard

At anytime you can view the leaderboard on the GB Racetracker website to see how everyone is doing. The winner of the race will be the person who accumulated the required distance first...simples!
