Event Background

The organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help save the UK’s charities in this difficult time.

The campaign, The 2.6 Challenge, will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th edition of the London Marathon. From Sunday 26 April, the public is asked to dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to Save the UK’s Charities via twopointsixchallenge.co.uk. The 2.6 Challenge is open to anyone of any age – the only requirement is that the activity must follow the Government guidelines on
exercise and social distancing.

The 2.6 Challenge is a simple and fun way for everyone to do their bit to help save the UK’s charities.

What is the 2.6 Challenge?

This is a challenge for all ages and abilities. All you need to do is think of an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6 that suits your skills and complete it on or from Sunday 26 April.

This could be something as simple as pledging to run 2.6 miles as your daily exercise to doing 26 minutes of yoga, or juggling for 26 minutes (or maybe just 2.6
minutes) non-stop. Check out the ‘how to get involved’ page on the 2.6 Challenge website for more ideas and inspiration.

And don’t worry if you’re not able to get out
your house or flat for now – you can do your 2.6 challenge anywhere inside too! There are no rules, apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time. Whatever you can do,
you can be a part of it – the main thing is to
get active, have fun and pledge whatever
you can!
