If you consider Blur Vs Oasis the biggest battle in music history, mastered your ‘girl power’ high kick as the 6th member of the Spice Girls or revelled in the boom of Grunge or Electronic sound, the I love the 90s virtual run combines running with the feel good factor, questionable fashion and top music that the very colourful decade brought to us.
To mark the charity’s 30th Anniversary and to launch our new Retro Running Series we’re hosting an ‘I love the 90s’ virtual run and you’re all invited to crimp your hair, wipe down your Smash Hits Posters and use our ultimate 90s playlist to either get you warmed up before your run or have your very own running rave.
Simply sign up to one of the following distances, choose if you would like to complete your run in one go or over a number of days and complete your run throughout the month of June.
Please be aware all medals will be sent out at the end of June.
- half marathon
- full marathon
Every person that takes part will gain access to the ultimate 90s playlist as well as an exclusive retro medal and running buff once the run is complete.
Even better, anyone who raises or donates £25 will receive an exclusive I Love the 90’s technical top!
Fancy dress is optional, dancing is encouraged and a banging 90s playlist is a must.
Staying safe and protecting others
It is absolutely vital that those taking on a virtual run follow the Government instructions. Under the current instructions (Published 11/05/2020), you are allowed to exercise outdoors as often as you wish. However, you must remain a safe distance from anyone else. This is a minimum of 2 metres.
Our virtual challenge will run throughout June, so if you have selected a distance that will push you beyond your current capability, we encourage you to do this over a number of days, as your health is most important and your 90’s virtual run shouldn’t compromise your immune system in any way. You are taking on this challenge in support of those living with lung cancer. They are at high risk of serious illness if they contract this virus, so please make sure you only take on this challenge in line with the latest Government instruction and stay safe.
Please note that all medals will be sent out at the end of June no matter when you complete the event, so anyone who completes their run at the start of June won’t receive a medal until the end of June.
Sign up options
Register for race only (£9)

All vests and tops will be sent out with medals following the end of the event.
