Click here to visito our Charity event the 2.6 Challenge

Become a Home Hero for the day with the 2.6 Challenge

The 2.6 challenge is a nation-wide virtual challenge event taking place on 26th April 2020, the original scheduled day for the London Marathon – and you can take part in support of the Children’s Respite Trust!

But have no fear, there’s no requirement to be a marathon runner to join in, we’re seeking Home Heroes of all ages and abilities. Simply think of an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and take on that challenge on Sunday 26th April

You could run 2.6 miles, complete 26 star jumps, or do a workout in 26 minutes (or even 2.6 minutes) – anything goes, as long as there’s a 26 or 2.6 in there somewhere!
