Get your glowsticks ready and prepare to dance from dusk till dawn with the Retro Running Series – Dance celebration!
From nights at the famous Hacienda club in Manchester to the popular Creamfields, dance music has come a long way in the past two decades with DJ’s such as Fatboy Slim and David Guetta becoming household names.
We’ll be focusing the main celebration of everything dance in July, and you can complete your distance anytime during the month.
As with all of the Retro Running Series genres, everyone who signs up for this event will receive an exclusive dance-themed medal plus access to a very special playlist to keep you motivated whilst you run. And, if you raise a minimum of £25 for lung cancer research and support, you’ll bag yourself a matching technical top.
It’s time to sign up and dance!
