Retro Running Series

United Kingdom

Welcome to the Retro Running Series!

Our Retro Running Series offers you a chance to head back in time relive your favourite decades. This is your chance to earn not just five amazing retro medals, but if you complete all five themed virtual runs, you will also receive a sixth Ultimate Retro Running Series medal to complete your collection.

From the psychedelic 60s, funky 70s, electric 80s, groovy 90s & the totally-cool 00s, we have an exclusive medal representing each unique era!

Not only does our Retro Running Series offer amazing medals, you will also receive a link to each decades very own Spotify playlists featuring the biggest hits from each era to keep you motivated during each run! Plus, you’ll receive an invitation to our Roys Runners Facebook community group and Strava run club & the option to purchase or donate to receive a matching technical top for each decade, whilst supporting those living with lung cancer.

Check out each exclusive medal that could be yours below – simply click on each image to sign up to an individual race or alternatively, continue to the end of the page to sign up for all five retro runs and you will receive the Ultimate Retro Running Series medal at the end of the series.
