Wiggle and the UK’s largest running club, Lonely Goat, have teamed up to host a special event celebrating the return of getting active with others.

Whether you run solo or with a friend or family member, this is a great way to reconnect through run - either virtually or physically. The free virtual 10K event is open to any age and ability - with the option to claim a real medal provided by Wiggle!

The official start time will be at 10am on 1 May but will be open to anyone that completes the challenge over the May bank holiday weekend (1 - 2 May).

Wiggle has minted a special medal to celebrate the event, which will be available to all those participating. Taking part in Reconnect Through Run is free for Lonely Goat members. And, what’s more, Wiggle is also covering the cost of the medals. That means, those claiming their physical medal will only have to cover the cost of postage and packaging at £3.50.

As the nation emerges cautiously from lockdown, Reconnect Through Run is a chance to meet those we may have only seen virtually or maybe lost contact with over the past year.

For the solo runners, the experience can be shared with the Lonely Goat herd through the club’s various platforms.

What’s more is that Lonely Goat runners can run together virtually on Zwift! A bespoke event has been scheduled on the Zwift platform at 10 am on 1st May – which is a fantastic way of the herd feeling like they are running together.

To find out how to join the Reconnect Through Run Zwift event – and take part alongside fellow Lonely Goats - click here.

Take on your 10k challenge with the Lonely Goat herd, your friend of family member anywhere – and remember, it’s not about time: it’s about reconnecting.

All we ask is that you share your stories and pictures with Wiggle and Lonely Goat and inspire others to reconnect, using the hashtag #ReconnectThroughRun.

The challenge will be open from 10am on 1 May, so that those not available on the official start date of 2 May can still take part.

Plus, those who complete the challenge will be entered into a prize draw where you can win one of three prize vouchers worth £100 at Wiggle.

To sign up, just visit Lonely Goat where you’ll find all the details on how to enter and claim your medal.
