It’s time to release your inner hippy and to bring out the flower. It’s time for I Love the 60s – the virtual running event full of peace, love and psychedelic music!
This was a time when skirts got shorter and boots got longer. It was the decade of freedom, Beatles and political upheaval. Join us as we celebrate everything that made the 1960s such an incredible period.
The 60s virtual run is the fourth decade featuring in our Retro running series that we are visiting throughout 2020 and takes you one step closer to earning the exclusive Ultimate Retro running medal.
How to take part
Simply sign up to one of the following distances and choose if you would like to complete your run in one go or, over a number of days.
- Half marathon

Anyone who raises or donates £25 will receive this exclusive I Love the 60s technical top!
Please note that all medals will be sent out in the week beginning 4th January no matter when you complete the event, so anyone who completes their run at the start of the month please bear in mind your medal won’t be posted until the start of January when the 60s run finishes.
