Join an organised race

Whether you like to run, cycle, swim or hike, there are so many organised events out there that you can join. From fun runs to marathons, triathlons to obstacle races, there’s a challenge out there just waiting for you to sign up! For some challenges, we offer charity places – search our events to see what’s coming up.

Challenge yourself

If you can’t find an organised challenge to sign up for, why not go it alone? Challenges such as the Coast to Coast, Land’s End to John O’Groats cycle and Yorkshire Three Peaks can be undertaken any time (weather permitting!) under your own steam. Or maybe you can come up with your own idea? Aim to swim the equivalent of the British Channel at your local baths over your own target time period, or ask friends and family to sponsor £1 for each lap you can run of your local park.
