The fifth and final Bolt On event is this coming Saturday, 19th March. The task is to complete as much elevation gain as you can within 24 hours. Aim for whatever you like, anything from repping your local small hill, to a full Everest within the alloted time. As ever the goal is simply to set yourself a challenge within this longer Slam journey and shoot to achieve it. Once you have completed the day, simply go to your Submit Results page and click the final Bolt Icon to turn it green and it will appear next to your name in the Leaderboard. Good luck everybody!
A new podcast episode for One Slam is available here on our website or via all good podcast providers. 9 days into our Slam journey, RD James Elson record takes you through the upcoming One Love and One Community Bolt On's and recaps a little of what's been gone and what's to come.
Join our Coaching Team for a free webinar at 1930 on Sunday 13th February. Led by our Head of Endurance Robbie Britton, our coaches will be providing tips on how to tackle One Community week.

Come and Join us for the second bolt on of the One Slam Event - Blue Monday in association with Re-Run.
Blue Monday - officially the most miserable day of the year but WOW have we got a way to brighten it up for you. Here’s what you need to do to complete the bolt-on.
Run anytime you like on the 17th January. That's it.
But here's the second part which is optional:
Whilst you are out running, take photos of any words or text that you see. These can be words on street signs, shop windows, waymarker posts, litter (maybe pick that up whilst you’re at it).... anything.
Save your run as usual into the system/ leaderboard, and click the Re-Run Bolt On Badge until it goes green. You have completed the challenge. The next part is the optional (but is the really fun part).
At 1930 on Monday the 17th, Dan Lawson from Re-Run and James Elson one of our RD’s at Centurion (who between them host the very erratic British Ultra Podcast) will be hosting a live Zoom evening special of ‘Cards Against Humanity’. Come armed with the pictures you took of the words you saw whilst out running. And Dan and James will host the highly interactive and fun game. The two will give a little pre-amble at 1930, discussing all things One Slam, before the game kicks off at 1945.
The Zoom Link will be shared on this news tab and via email prior to this weekend/ the event kicking off.
Thank you and see you there!
James and Dan
