Bored of "Virtual Run Festivals" and the like?
Get yourself into the Christmas spirit with a new take on our ever popular Urbaneering - exploring the City of Glasgow. If you took part last year, this years play area and landmarks are different. Suitable for all ages and abilities, this is a great event to do as part of a family Christmas day out or with friends.
All profits from entry will be donated to Peek Project at this much needed time. Peek Project is a Glasgow based charity which aims to improve the life chances for children and young people across Scotland by unlocking their potential and journeying alongside them. They run projects around themes of Play, Create and Thrive. Their work is close to our hearts and the opportunities provided to people often from very deprived areas / backgrounds is invaluable.
Adults and children of all ages (supervised by an adult as appropriate) are welcome. The event can be run or even walked in your own time at any point over the weekend. Distance travelled is entirely up to you and how energetic you are feeling, there is a choice of challenge to take on: a smaller challenge and a larger challenge to suit different ages or abilities; or you can just challenge yourself to go as far as possible in the time given!
Here's how it works:
Your team Captain (or you if participating individually) purchases ani individual entry for each team member eg. f you have 5 team members - you need 5 entries.
A list of clues will be sent out to your team captain by the morning of the 17th December so you can start planning. From these clues you must work out what Glasgow landmark we are talking about, make your way there and take a photograph (the more festive and crazy the better!) of your team at that landmark. There will be two sets of clues for you to choose from:
Set 1 - The 12 Days of Christmas
A shorter option with 12 landmarks to find and snap
Set 2 - The Christmas Advent
Your longer option with 25 landmarks to find and capture
Each set will come with both a list of cryptic clues and a more literal clue option – you can choose how much you want to tax your brains on your way round!
The start and finish point of your run can be anywhere in the play area for the activity - whatever is convenient for you.
In order to participate we encourage you to join and log your run onto the Pro Endurance Strava club to upload your activity so we can see what you did and look at your photos. Please entitle your activity “Pro Endurance Urbaneering”. Once you are finished, your team captain should upload your team’s activity and up to 12 of your favourite photographs of the day to your Strava activity – after all we all know, if it’s not on Strava it didn’t happen!
We all love a bit of competition don’t we? So, if it’s not on distance covered, or time taken, what is being judged??
Your photographs!!! We want to fill Strava and social media with your festive fun photos to bring some cheer to everyone. Upload as many as you wish up to your 12 best photos of the chosen landmarks with as many of your team members in it (selfie stick permissible if going it alone) to go on to the competition. Get creative – fancy dress?? Props?? We will choose our favourite from everyone’s Strava upload and post them for all to vote on their absolute favourite of the lot on our facebook page.
