United Kingdom

The hugely popular Retro Running Series is back, bigger and better for 2021!

This year we’re going to be visiting five of the very best music genres from the last few decades. Five months. Five music genres. Five virtual runs.

From dance to pop, with jazz, rock and motown in between, whatever your taste we’ll be celebrating everything that makes music so incredible, starting in July and ending in November.

The Retro Running Series not only allows you to celebrate the very best music genres whilst out running, but allows you to earn six exclusive medals and five incredible technical tops whilst listening to our amazing Spotify playlists along the way.

Join us for what guarantees to be a very special virtual running event and help us support those affected by lung cancer who need help more than ever.

We will be running a different music genre each month and would love for you to join us and our Roy’s Runners, however you are more than welcome to create your own timeframe for these runs. As you will already have your medals, you don’t not need to upload evidence, we would however encourage you to still post your virtual run via our Roys Runners Facebook group as we would love to congratulate you on a fantastic Retro run.


We will be focusing each genre in the following months:

  • Dance and Trance – July
  • Motown – August
  • Rock – September
