Take on your own 2.6 Challenge and be a stay at home hero

Help more people access physical activity and cultural experiences in our communities.

On Sunday 26 April, London Marathon runners would be preparing to raise money for hundreds of UK charities.

But the coronavirus pandemic means that so many events – raising such important funds for families and people in our communities – can’t go ahead this year.

By taking on the 2.6 Challenge, you can still make a difference.

About the Challenge

It can be whatever you like – as long as it has 2.6 or 26 somewhere in the activity.

Here are just some ideas to get your creative juices flowing.

  • Walking or running 2.6 miles or 2.6 kms
  • 26 press-ups
  • 26 minutes hopping round the garden or doing the plank (we know!)
  • Skipping or star jumping for 26 minutes
  • Walk up and down the stairs 26 times
  • Build the biggest tower out of play bricks in 2.6 minutes

It can be a sponsored activity, or a donation – £2.60 or £26 – whatever is affordable – it all adds up and will make a difference.

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on social distancing and stay local.
