Runner on an early morning autumn run

Best foot forward for the generous Christmas Stocking Virtual 5 Miler

A full stocking of prizes to be won at Running Bear's first virtual run

HOKA trainers are amongst the prizes at the Christmas Stocking Virtual 5-Mile Run, taking place between Monday 7 December and Sunday 13 December. This is the first virtual event from organisers Running Bear who encourage everyone to hit the trails – the muddier the better – and support the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY).  

Based in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, the popular running specialist has responded to the challenge posed by Covid-19 with a challenge of their own. They invite people of all ages and abilities to make it a muddy good Christmas despite the restrictions by running 5 miles off-road and see their name in lights.   

Festive fancy dress is encouraged along with post-run selfies and participants share these with the organisers to be in with a chance of winning a spot prize. These include one pair of men’s and one pair of women’s HOKA ONE ONE trainers, OMM accessories and clothing from the Running Bear collection. Mick Hall (Mick Hall Photos) has donated a framed running or landscape photograph to one lucky winner and everyone will receive a limited edition pair of Running Bear Christmas themed socks. 

A little creativity is called for in respect of uploaded routes and selfies to be in the running for a prize. Participants complete the distance on a route of their own choosing then submit this to be featured on a live leaderboard where they can see how they fare against other participants. 

In keeping with the spirit of giving, Running Bear will match £2 of every entry fee donated to CRY making it £4 per entry going to this charity.
