Need some inspiration?

Fundraisers have already been setting themselves an array of 2.6 Challenges to raise funds.

Team Skinner

Having been busy training to tackle the London Marathon to raise funds in memory of her Dad, Kirstie Skinner, decided that she couldn’t let what would have been marathon day pass without pulling on her trainers.

Instead of the 26.2 miles, she would have been running Kirstie decided to complete a ‘round the block run’ which saw her run a 5.3km lap five times to achieve a distance of 26.2km.

Kirstie was joined for some of the laps by her children, who also completed their own 2.6 Challenges – with 26 flops on the trampoline and 26 consecutive netball goals.
