2.6 Challenge

Be a Home Hero!

From Sunday 26 April, the day when the Virgin Money London Marathon would have taken place, you’re invited to join the rest of the UK for The 2.6 Challenge.

The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like – from running around the balcony for 2.6 miles to juggling for 2.6 minutes or doing 26 press-ups with the dog on your back, the options are endless!

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

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

We’re asking that our fundraisers donate £2.60 after completing their challenge.
