FAQ's
Will I be able to keep up in the Christmas Lights Running Tour?
Yes. Runners are asked to sign up to the group that they are most comfortable with, so you should be grouped with runners of a similar pace. Gentle Jingle (if you're comfortable running 10k in 12-13 minute miles) Merrily Medium (if you're comfortable running 10k in 10-11 minute miles) Festively Fast (if you're comfortable running 10k in 9 minute miles or under) If you don't feel you can run at the Merrily Medium pace, it is advised that you change to the Gentle Jingle events so you can enjoy the sights more. Please note that the above groups are available on several different dates throughout December, so if you can't make one, check out the other dates on Let's Do This.
