Anyone up for some advent running?

We love to run. We also love the end of year festivities; mulled wine, mince pies, work parties, good will to all mankind (and womankind, natch) and all that jazz. But as days get shorter and our lives get busier, running often takes a back seat.

Not this year! AdventRunning is a free and simple run challenge that aims to keep people running throughout the month of December. The aim is to run (or swim, cycle, do yoga – it doesn't matter as long as you are getting active) for a minimum of 30 minutes a day, each day, between the 1st and the 25th of December. After that you can carry on for the rest of the month, or take a break with the knowledge that you’ll be able to start the New Year in fighting form and ready to smash out some new PBs.

To keep you motivated throughout the challenge we will be awarding a daily spot prize for the best photo, video or written description of the day’s run shared by you on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Follow the action on our social media channels and come to our daily London based events during December: //

That sounds like a good plan! The Advent "running streak" has been mentioned in the Guardian as well:
