North Lanarkshire’s Virtual Run/Cycle Event 2021

Run or Cycle your way into Spring, in support of suicide prevention

Why not sign up for our event and give yourself a target to work towards, whilst raising awareness of an important and worthy cause? The need to look out for our neighbours, friends and family has never been greater than it is right now. Restrictions on being able to spend time with the people we care about is tough so sign up to our event to give yourself a focus through the winter months and help us to spread the word about suicide prevention.

This event is a Virtual Run OR Cycle event whereby all participants will take part on their own or as part of a team at a location of their choice and track their run or cycle on a GPS tracking app and submit this as evidence that you have completed your chosen distance.

The event will take place over one week in April 2021 when all participants will complete their chosen event/distance in a single attempt over the duration of this week.

The event week will be the week beginning the 19th of April 2021.

The sign-up period will be from Friday 15th January 2021 until Sunday 21st of March 2021

This event is for all ages and abilities and we have a range of categories to hopefully suit as many people as possible:

Beginner - 5K run or 15K Cycle

Intermediate - 10K run or 30K cycle

Advanced - 20K run or 50K cycle

Team Entry –  Team of 5 (50K run or 100K cycle as a team)

                                  Team of 10 (100K run or 200K cycle as a team)

                                  Team of 15 (150K run or 300K cycle as a team)

Please note that if you would prefer to walk instead of run, you are still able to enter and you can walk any of the running distances 

All details and procedures on how to submit your event evidence will be sent via email to you prior to the event week.

  • Please note that if you are signing up as part of a team, please ensure you adhere to Governing Body and Government Guidelines with regards to meeting others out with your household to train and take part in the event.
