Whitburn & Cleadon Trail Challenge
Following the success of our South Shields Virtual Landmark Challenge, we are setting up a Whitburn & Cleadon Trail Challenge with a similar format & following the social distancing guidelines.
The challenge involves a combination of running or walking to checkpoints in and around Whitburn & Cleadon. The checkpoints can be completed in any order and you must navigate your own route. The distance will be roughly 8-10 miles depending on your route.
*HOW THE CHALLENGE WILL WORK*
- We will post a photo of the start & finish point, each of the landmarks, and will provide a map to view on this webpage on Sunday 7th June.
- You can complete the challenge from Monday 8th June to Sunday 21st June. Results will be posted on Monday 22nd June
- The landmarks will be listed in Alphabetical Order. You can visit the landmarks in any order you wish.
- Take a selfie or team photo close to the landmarks as safely & respectfully possible, to prove you have visited.
- Runners must send us their team names, distance covered, photos & overall elapsed time in the Whitburn & Cleadon Challenge Facebook group.
- Results will take into account how many landmarks were completed & the time taken.
- Runners MUST follow the government & social distancing guidelines, including when taking the photos.
- You can run on your own, with family members or with up to 6 people total in a team (if able to stay 2 metres apart at all times)
- We advise you to take a fully charged mobile phone, money, drinks & snacks with you.
- You may complete the challenge by a combination of running & walking.
- We will take all submissions in good faith and hope you all enjoy the event for some light hearted running fun!
