Circle Presents….The DARED Challenge
‘Do A Run Every Day’ in June
Thank you for showing your interest in our Circle exclusive virtual event. Join hundreds of other runners to take on the DARED Challenge, and incorporate exercise into your daily lives, whilst supporting children and families across Scotland.
Are you ready to join us in 2023 for the 6th annual DARED Challenge event?
“DARED was exactly the challenge I needed to get my going again after a prolonged period of laziness had set in. The support from the other participants was amazing and kept me going through highs and lows!” DARED Participant
What is the Challenge?
The concept of DARED is very simple – do a run every day in June whilst raising money for Circle. That’s it. You can run at any time of day that suits you, before work, after work, during lunch, early evening. Anytime!
This is a challenge of physical and mental stamina, requiring disciplined preparation and recovery, an accomplishment that all participants should be proud of. As well as the obvious health benefits, you will also be supporting Circle. Every penny you raise and every mile you run will go towards making a life-changing difference to children and families living in some of Scotland’s most deprived areas.
You can choose between two challenges and can complete them as a series of runs, brisk walks or a combination of the two. You can choose to run individually or in groups, outside in the fresh air or on a treadmill.
Our beginner’s challenge is great for anyone starting out on their fitness journey, or those trying to ease themselves back in. Enjoy a steady improvement in fitness throughout the month and achieve running more than a marathon over the course of 30 days!
If you are looking for a bigger challenge, why not try our ‘experienced’ 5km per day challenge. Sound easy? Then consider it as running more than 3 marathons in just 1 month!
If either the 1 mile or 5km DARED options don’t suit you then why not take on DARED To Be Different and come up with your own challenge to Do A Run Every Day in June. Perhaps you are looking for something a little more challenging than running 5K a day; or hesitant about committing to run 1 mile a day; or you want to start at 1 mile and build up to 5km a day?
DARED To Be Different gives you a blank canvas to set your own challenge, based on your own needs, capabilities, and availability. As long as you commit to Do A Run Every Day you can set the distance, whether its 1 mile, 5km, 10km or a build-up of distance each day.
