Centurion Running - Worldwide
Welcome to the Centurion Running One Community Up event.
During the last week of May we held our inaugural virtual event, the One Community challenge where the goal was to complete distances of between 5km and 100 miles over the course of a week.
The One Up challenge has a similar shape but is based entirely on elevation gain rather than distance.
Over the week of July 20th to July 26th 2020, runners can shoot for one of 8 different elevation levels outlined below. Climb or elevation gain can be made outside on trail, on the road or on the mountain or inside on the treadmill, stair machine or stairs etc. There are two categories, Standard which is non assisted and Up only which is for those using assisted descent or no descent eg. the treadmill. See further down for full classification.
As per the One Community event, runners of any age can take part and aim for any of the targets below (Under 18s up to Ben Nevis only and entry cost is lower). We want everybody to be able to take part and set themselves a target.
The difference with this one is that you don't select your target at the start, you can enter and just keep adding to your tally all through the week. Your final total climb will give you the level you achieved and your award will match that level.
10% of all revenue will be donated to MIND. MIND are the charity partner for most of our events and by this stage in a normal racing year we would have donated about £2000 from finish line food sale proceeds. This gives us a chance to generate some further much needed revenue for them at a time when the charity sector has been hit hard by the crisis.
