The 2.6 challenge

Join the country and take part in the 2.6 Challenge to help save the UK’s charities.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a disastrous effect on charities all over the world. The cancellation of thousands of fundraising events means charities will lose a substantial amount of income this year. The Virgin Money London Marathon alone, raised more than £66.4 million for thousands of charities in 2019.

The 2.6 challenge has been set up to help save our charities through this time and anyone can get involved!

Get involved by taking part in any activity you like – from running 2.6 miles to holding an online workout with 26 of your friends. Check out ‘how to get involved’ for more ideas.

Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. “After all, we’re not looking for superheroes. We’re looking for Home Heroes”
