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 West End of Glasgow. Suitable for all ages and abilities, this is a great event to do as part of a family Christmas day out or with friends (current Covid restrictions permitting – currently up to 6 people from up to 2 households but this may change).
All profits from entry will be donated to mental health charity Common Wheel at this much needed time. Common Wheel is a Glasgow based charity helping people with mental illness to live a meaningful and satisfying life while contributing to society. They run a range of projects but the closest to our heart is their very successful bike repair and reconditioning workshops that have ran since 2001.
Adults and children of all ages (supervised by an adult) 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 an entry for all team members.
A list of clues will be sent out to your team captain on the morning of the 12th December. 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 must be at the Riverside Museum
In order to participate you must join and log your run onto the Pro Endurance Strava club to upload your activity so we can ratify your activity. 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! Your file will be checked for accuracy and matched with the photos.
Please note, you cannot submit evidence for this event before 12th December or after 13th December.
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. You must have a Strava activity that ties in with the relevant photographs
