Under 21’s Run Free

To inspire and encourage the next generation to get into running and lead a healthier, more active lifestyle, we’re giving U21’s FREE entry into every single adidas City Run event in 2020!

We’re passionate about growing the sport of running and through this initiative, we hope that we will motivate thousands of youngsters to enter one of our events and experience the thrill of taking part in a major closed road running event.

So, whether you’re a keen runner or just getting started, as long as you’re U21 on the day of the event, you can take part for free (minimum age 16).

Please email hello@adidascityruns.com and attach your photo ID and we’ll explain the next steps. Please use the subject line: Under 21 Run Free.

* Please note, the 2020 Islington Half & 10K has been cancelled and therefore no free U21 entries are available. 


How do I claim my Under 21 free place?

You claim your entry by using the above link, choosing the 16 to 21 Category and entering an appropriate Date of Birth.

I am under 18 and can’t register?

Participants that are 16 or 17 on the Event Date must be registered by a Parent or Legal Guardian. They will need to select that the registration is for ‘someone else, below 18’, and then create an account. Once that has been done, they will be able to enter ‘the participants’ details under the participant section.

Will my Event pack be posted to me?

No. You will need to come to the Event Village on the Emirates Stadium concourse between 11am-5pm on Saturday November 14. Please remember to bring a photo ID and your confirmation email. If you are under 18 you will also need to provide a signed Parental Consent Form when you collect your pack.

Do I have to wear the free adidas t-shirt?

All runners must wear the free adidas race day t-shirt they receive in advance of the event. This will have your unique race number printed on it which will pair with your timing chip and also be used to identify you for your personal photos.

Can I change my registration details?

You can change your details up until 30 days prior to the event (October 15). You can do this by logging into your account (using the details setup during registration) and edit your information here: https://myevents.active.com.

I have a question that isn’t answered in the FAQs, how can I contact you?

Please drop us an email at hello@adidascityruns.com and we will be happy to try and answer any questions you may have.
