Following the unfortunate cancellation of the 2020 Chicken Run due to COVID-19 the ABS team has been working hard to create alternative ways to bring the community together. We are pleased to announce our virtual replacement; The Cooped-Up Chicken Run.

The Cooped-Up Chicken Run is a virtual sports and wellbeing event running throughout the first week of May. 

Like previous years the option of wearing chicken related costumes is highly encouraged as we would love to see you taking part while dressed up. There will be winners for best dressed costume, the practice/company which has the most staff sign ups and the winners of each event. There will also be a children’s category for each event.

Participants can make a donation to the ABS which will enable them to enter as many of the sport activity events organized during the week as they would like to participate in. We are asking participants to photograph, video and record their times throughout the week to their social media. This way, we can spread the word and compete with others for the top spot! Please use #CoopedUpChickens when posting and tag the ABS in your post so we don't miss it.

Sports events activities include:
- The fastest solitary 5km run (Following government advice)
- The most consecutive press ups in a row
- The longest continuous plank
- The most skips in 1 minutes
(counting out loud while doing it).
Winners of each event will be asked to send in video/app screenshot as proof.

During the week of the competition you have the option of completing any of the events at the time which best suits you and then submitting it in to us. For instance you could decide to do 2 activities on the Monday, 1 on the Tuesday and 1 on the Thursday. Or you could decide you just want to complete one activity and send it to us or tag the ABS on social media with your activity before the end of Sunday the 10th.
