Due to popular demand, we’ve extended the closing date for entries into our Big Marathon Challenge 2018 to Monday 16 October. So, if you missed the October issue containing all the details, here’s everything you need to know – and how you can apply.
Every year, we give a team of women the opportunity to achieve their marathon goals with us. Readers are given the chance to apply by writing in, telling us about their marathon aspirations and, based on these applications, a final team is selected by WR. Team members are then guided through every stage in their marathon journey, with their progress documented in the magazine each month.
The Big Marathon Challenge will be hosted in collaboration with ASICS this year, meaning all team members will not only receive top-to-toe ASICS kit but a place in the ASICS Greater Manchester Marathon 2018. Not only that, this year, we’re giving you – our readers – the chance to select the final team. Once we’ve received your entries, we will shortlist 15 candidates and host their profiles online, giving you the chance to vote for your favourite canidates. The three women with the most votes will form the final team. Voting will open 23 October and will close 10 November. Winners will be announced in our February issue (out 28 December).
