MK Mini SixPack Challenge

The MK Mini SixPack Challenge is especially designed for our Mini Moovers – geting our kids outside, getting them moooving and developing their love for running! 

In partnership with the Parks Trust, we have pulled together six awesome running routes around the city, each route being slightly different, one is even on trails!

The SixPack routes can be seen below. Complete all the distances and you’ve covered 19km!

Minimum age 8 years old. 

What you will need

  • An adult to accompany any under 12s
  • A smartphone with the RunGo app and what3words downloaded, for navigation. 

What do I get?

  • All Mini Mooovers will recieve their very own Mini SixPack Challenge wooden medal! These will be sent out after they have finished. 

A few notes before you go...

  • It is crucial you stick to the social distancing rules in force at the time you wish to start your runs
  • Please try and do the runs when you expect the redways and paths to be quieter, and remember there may be dogs, cyclists and other park users out and about
  • There are a few road crossings (all quiet roads) but you MUST be aware for your own safety at all times and be considerate to other people
  • Remember you can run each route as many times as you like and re-upload your results.

How do I upload my time?

  1. Log into your Results Base profile and go back to the entry page (that's here!)
  2. Select the tab above that says 'Enter Result'
  3. Pop in your time for whichever route you have completed
  4. Add in any photos of your journey or a link to your Strava or Garmin - please note that when you view your result again later, the link you used will be in the button 'see submitted route'.

Technology and Navigation

Please use this fantastic app to ensure you can follow the full route directly from your phone. Download the app and join our Big Cow Running Group to get all the routes with turn-by-turn navigation. We are still waiting for a couple of signs to be installed by the Parks Trust, using this system will also ensure that if anyone has tampered with the signs you will be able to navigate the route without issue. iPhone users: https://apps.apple.com/app/rungo-guided-runs-turn-by/id712628644 Android users: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?hl=en&id=com.rungo RunGo is the #1 running app for discovering the best routes in the world with turn-by-turn navigation. Follow a voice guided tour, including the encouraging reminder when you’re halfway there. RunGo also tracks your runs stats like time, pace, distance, elevation and estimated finish time.
what3words is a really simple way to talk about location. They have assigned each 3m square in the world a unique 3-word address that will never change. For example: ‘filled.count.soap’ marks the exact entrance to what3words’ London headquarters. People use what3words to find their tents at festivals, navigate to B&Bs, and to direct emergency services to the right place. We have used what3words to share with you the exact start locations for each route. Please download the app – it is great for sharing your location when meeting up with people, but also really useful in emergencies and for navigation. iPhone users: https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/what3words/id657878530 Android users: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.what3words.android&hl=en_GB
