The 2.6 Challenge

We’re excited to join The 2.6 Challenge – an initiative to save UK charities.

  • Sunday 28 June 2020
  • Your home or a route near to your home

The 2.6 Challenge, will launch on Sunday 26 April – on what should have been the 40th Virgin Money London Marathon.

A simple virtual challenge, with a simple message. Set yourself a challenge for any activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise to save the UK's charities.

The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like – from running 2.6 miles to holding an online workout with 26 of your friends. Whatever your age or ability, you can take part, the only requirement is the activity must follow the Government's Guidance on social distancing.

Check out our fundraising team's favourite 2.6 Challenge ideas:

  • Run 2.6 miles or kms (indoors, outdoors or on the spot!)
