The 2.6 Challenge

On 26 April, join the rest of the UK for The 2.6  Challenge and support the Freddie Farmer Foundation! 

With hundreds of events postponed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, thousands of charities have had to reduce or stop services at a time when vulnerable members of society need them most. The 2.6 Challenge is a simple way for everyone to help save the UK’s charities.

You can help

On Sunday 26 April, the day when the Virgin Money London Marathon would have taken place, join the rest of the UK for The 2.6 Challenge. Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. 

Your #TwoPointSixChallenge can be any activity you like – from running around the balcony for 2.6 miles, doing 26 press-ups with the dog on your back, bench-pressing 26 kilos with your grandchild, shooting 26 basketball or netball hoops, or getting 26 pals together for an online workout!

Have a look at Virgin Money Giving’s 26 family-friendly activities for inspiration.
