Who we are?

The Running Bug is an online virtual challenge website with one aim, to help people stay motivated.

In 2020, we launched the website during the grip of the COVID pandemic. With the UK in lockdown, we wanted to keep the country positive and give them something to look forward to.

Who We Are
A variety of Virtual Challenges

Our Virtual Challenges

We try to be flexible and cater for all with our virtual challenges from people starting to run, 5k park runners, occasional walkers or seasoned marathon and ultra runners.  We have even started virtual challenges for children.

Once you have completed your challenge, you’ll be rewarded for your achievement with a stylish finishers medal.

See our selection of virtual challenges here.

Sharing is Caring

 We love to see your activities and encourage people to share your achievements with others. We have a  Facebook group and Instagram page where you can always find friendly and like-minded people. We also have our own Strava Running Club. 

Find us on Facebook or join our Strava club.
