The 2.6 Challenge is a UK fundraising campaign that encourages the nation to take part in an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and either fundraise for or donate to a chosen charity.

The challenge launches on Sunday 26th April, when the London Marathon would have taken place.

The Local Landmarks 2.6 Challenge

The organisers of London Landmarks Half Marathon (which has been postponed until later in 2020) have temporarily adapted their alternative 'Local Landmarks Challenge' to create the Local Landmarks 2.6 Challenge and they are rewarding everyone who takes part with an exclusive medal. 

The Local Landmarks 2.6 Challenge is a solo, virtual walk, jog or run around your local landmarks for any distance as long as it’s based around the numbers 26 or 2.6. Your can be creative and come up with a unique way to complete the challenge!

Think outside the box and choose a challenge to help Bowel & Cancer Research through this difficult period.

The challenge is open to anyone of any age – the only requirement is that the activity must follow the Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. The current government advice is that it's safe to go outside to exercise once a day alone or with a member of your household as long as you keep a safe distance from other people of least 2 meters.
