How Far Will You Go? UK's Biggest 24hr Trail Race

We are approaching the Summer solstice, which in the UK will be the 20 June. Red Bull is encouraging runners across the UK and Ireland to run 1.5 million miles in 28 days – racing the Moon around the Earth over the course of a lunar cycle.


Race The Moon

On the 21 June, the new moon will mark the start of Red Bull’s Race The Moon challenge. The objective is to encourage people to make the most of their miles, for example, using the time challenge to discover new green spaces and local routes, or focusing on specific aspects of their running. Through the dedicated Red Bull running group on Strava, participants will receive training tips and help, using the unique community spirit to motivate each other to help complete the challenge.

You’ll have 28 days – until the start of the next lunar cycle, – to finish the challenge, culminating on the 19 July and earning yourself a virtual challenge badge.

Tom Evans, one of Britain’s top ultra runners and Red Bull athlete , a former winner of the 101km Courmayeur Champex Chamonix race will also be participating in the challenge. He’ll be offering tips and insights into how to make the most out of your miles, as well as training tips to keep going throughout the month. We have featured Tom on the website previously here.

Win a Trip to Austria and Red Bull’s Performance Lab

There are also prizes up for grabs for people taking part. The athlete that tops the leaderboard and completes the most miles in the 28 days will win the ultimate prize, a trip to the Athlete Performance Centre in Austria. Located just outside of Salzburg, it’s home to Red Bull’s high-performance lab, designed to help athletes regain or improve their fitness.
