If getting into running was your lockdown passion, you should definitely sign up for the adidas City Runs: Islington 1 Hour!
Calling all runners (and gentle joggers)! This October, adidas is bringing another incredible City Run to the streets of London and it’s an extra special one… This time they’re back with an exciting 1 Hour race that features a finish line INSIDE Emirates Stadium – the iconic home of Arsenal FC.
The challenge, which will take place on October 10, is to run as far as you can in 60 minutes on the 1 mile course around Emirates Stadium and surrounding Islington streets. It’s the only running event where you’ll finish with a distance instead of a time! Sounds pretty cool, right?
The scenic Islington course will be lined with enthusiastic supporters and an incredible live DJ Truck to provide the motivational soundtrack to your run. There’ll also be a dedicated adidas Runners cheer station where your biggest fans will keep you hyped as the minutes tick down.
Runners will enjoy a 360° view of the stadium, before soaking up the glory in a hero’s finish as they collect their medal inside the stadium itself where you can also make sure you snap those all-important post-race selfies.
Oh, and did we mention that you’ll even get to walk down the player’s tunnel as you leave the stadium to meet your friends and family? Seriously, if you ever dreamed of being a football legend, this might be the closest you’ll get!
When you buy your ticket, you’ll also get a free adidas tech t-shirt, a free personalised race day photo album (because if you didn’t post it on Insta, did it even happen?), and a fancy medal to show off! And, if you’re under 21, you can actually enter the event for free! Find out more about that here.
Whether you’re a running pro or a fresh-faced novice, everyone’s invited to get involved in the adidas City Runs: Islington 1 Hour. The challenge is open to runners of all abilities and there’s even a free Community Mile event for everyone aged 4+. Remember, your first personal best is still a personal best and you’ll all be leaving with that post-race bling around your neck!
Enter the event now and get ready for the big Stadium Finish.
The adidas City Runs: Islington 1 Hour will take place on October 10 2021, tickets can be purchased on the adidas City Runs website here. Please note that adidas City Runs will provide a safe and Covid-compliant race day experience that meets Government Public Health guidelines.
