One of the nation’s biggest fundraising events of the year
From Sunday 26th April, join thousands of people across the UK for one of the nation’s biggest fundraising events of the year — The 2.6 Challenge. From walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, to holding an online workout with 26 friends, take part in an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and help raise money for St Oswald's.
What is The 2.6 Challenge?
The coronavirus pandemic has caused thousands of fundraising events to be cancelled, including the London Marathon which should have been taking place on 26th April. This will have a devastating impact on charities - losing billions across the sector in fundraising income. In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events have come together to create The 2.6 Challenge to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities in these difficult times.Join the 2.6 challenge
