Take on the 2.6 Challenge

Sunday 26 April 2020 - Thursday 30 April 2020 - But continue fundraising as long as you can!


Take on the 2.6 challenge!

Be a champion for Dame Hannahs and take on the 2.6 Challenge to help our young people to live as full a life as possible.

The 2.6 challenge is a nationwide virtual challenge taking place on Sunday 26 April 2020. Get your thinking cap on and set yourself a unique challenge based around the number 2.6 or 26.

No matter your age, ability or talents there are so many things you can do. From running around your garden for 2.6 miles, doing 26 star jumps or taking your dog for a 26 minute walk. You don’t have to be a marathon runner to join in!

About the challenge

The campaign, The 2.6 Challenge, will launch on Sunday 26 April 2020 – what should have been the date of the 40th edition of the Virgin Money 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. 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.

The challenge period runs from Sunday 26th – Thursday 30th April and it’s down to you to select your challenge and set up a fundraising page. You’ll have those five days to complete your challenge and get the ball rolling with fundraising.

Help us to inspire the nation by sharing pictures or videos of your challenge on social media using the official hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge to be part of the campaign.

Once you’ve done yours, why not nominate someone else to take on The 2.6 Challenge!

And don’t worry if you’re not able to get out of your house or flat for now. We’re not looking for superheroes - we’re looking for Home Heroes.
