The Challenge Awards, powered by Let’s Do This and presented by Runner’s World, aim to recognise the best challenge events, organisations, charities, communities, and individuals.
Over the last year, event attendees have been asked to submit reviews for this season’s UK challenge events on Let’s Do This, from 5k fun runs to ultra marathons and full-distance triathlons. The top-rated UK events, alongside the best international events and the best of the rest categories, have been nominated for the voting stage of The Challenge Awards, starting on Monday August 19th.
The Challenge Awards will culminate in an awards show like no other at the prestigious Queens Club in West Kensington. Here, our winners will be joined by special guests including athletes, industry leaders, and the press.Find out how you can snag an invite
The Challenge Awards is supported by, and will be attended by, the most decorated sports women and men in the UK, from Paralympic gold medalists Sarah Storey and Tanni Grey-Thompson, to former marathon world champion Paula Radcliffe, to international rugby and football stars Lawrence Dallaglio and Rio Ferdinand.
We are proud and honored to be joined by these great athletes who contribute so much to their communities.
The Challenge Awards are backed by some of the brightest in our industry. We appreciate everything they are doing to support the awards program.
