The 70s. A decade of disco, flares and space hoppers. The Beatles split up, breaking many hearts, and kids rode around on Chopper bikes. It also happens to be the next decade to feature in our hugely popular Retro Running Series.
Brace yourself for the grooviest virtual run out there. Prepare your best glam rock outfit, polish your platforms (not advisable to run in!) and take to the streets to run when you want, where you want.
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 when you can.
- Half marathon
- Full marathon
Once you’ve completed your distance, simply upload your evidence to our Strava or Facebook group & we will post your medal to you.
Anyone who raises or donates £25 will receive an exclusive I Love the 70’s technical top!
Every supporter that takes part will receive access to the ultimate 70s playlist, an invitation to our Roy’s Runners Community and an exclusive 70s retro medal once the run is complete.
Why not sign up for the complete Retro Running Series?
You can now sign up for every decade in the series, and anyone who raises over £150 sponsorship will receive an exclusive technical top to match their medal. Find out more on our Retro Running Series page.
Please note: you don’t need to get in touch if you would like to change your distance as your medal isn’t distance specific.
