Keep the kids busy: try the Weetabix Protein Youth Challenge

Read Time:   |  April 6, 2020

Get your children involved in this free virtual race

The UK government announced last night that schools across the country will close on Friday until further notice as a response to the coronavirus pandemic.

We’re sure that many of you, like us, are apprehensive about what this will mean for our lives and the lives of our children over the coming months.

So, here’s something that might cheer you up: for the first time, ASICS and Virgin Sport are inviting children to join in on their annual 10K race. The Weetabix Protein Youth Challenge encourages children to run the best part of a virtual 10K, before joining thousands on 5 July 2020 to run their last few kilometres at the ASICS London 10K race. They’ll also be able to complete their full 10K virtually if they’d prefer.

Entry to the Weetabix Protein Youth Challenge is free of charge and the children will still receive race goodies if they don’t attend the London event. It’s a great way to encourage them to be active and gives them a taster of that race-day buzz.

“The ASICS London 10K is Virgin Sport’s most iconic landmark race,” said CEO of Virgin Sport Jessica Frey. “We are delighted to partner with Weetabix Protein at this year’s event to bring people of all ages and abilities together through movement.”
