Complete 5x2km runs as fast as you can for your chance to win a pair of Skechers Go Run 2 trainers.

The three holy grails of triathlon are strength, stamina and speed. Skimp on the latter and you’re forever resigning yourself to average performances whatever distance you choose to tackle.

So to whip you into shape and help you smash that elusive PB, we’ve come up with a speed orientated challenge to get those legs burning and lungs busting.

All you have to do this month is run 2km five times as FAST as you can.

Each one of you that successfully hits the 10km target will be entered into the prize draw and stand a chance of winning a pair of Skechers Go Run 2 trainers.


Spot prizes

We are also going to be awarding spot prizes for:

  • The fastest 2km run logged.
  • The best photo uploaded of you looking knackered after your 2km run!
