The Fitness Rewards 12 Days of Christmas Challenge

To take part, run (any distance, any pace, any time) every day for the 12 days leading into Christmas and share your run on social media daily using #12daysofchristmas and including @fitnesrewards1

Every day Fitness Rewards will select a random winner from everyone who shares their run that day.

Giving out a race place each day, winners will have the choice of half marathons at Reading, Brighton, Bath, or North London (which finishes in Wembley stadium).

If you can do all 12 days of Christmas on the bounce you’ll go into a special Fitness Rewards Christmas present random prize draw to WIN a race place of your choice, surprise bundle, and a Marathon Talk leisure t-shirt.

If any listeners take out their life insurance with Fitness Rewards in association with Vitality, not only will they get weekly rewards such as cinema tickets & Starbucks coffee, but they'll also receive an incredible sign-up offer on a Garmin or the new Apple Watch Series 2. 

All you need to do is quote Marathon Talk when purchasing life insurance to get this great deal.
