The 2012km Challenge* is a great way for you to be a part of the excitement of London 2012.
In class, house, school or family teams complete the 2012km via one or more of the following sports:
Walking - Cycling - Running - Swimming - Canoeing/Kayaking - Horse-riding
Rowing - Wheelchair - Sailing - Windsurfing
Everyone can do as much or as little as they are able to but everyone's efforts counts towards the grand total, just log your distances on your own Gold Challenge Totalizer
There is no minimum fundraising amount but why not aim to raise £2012?
Use our Totalizer to keep track of how far you’ve gone and see if you can be truly inspired by the Games to complete the challenge by the end of 2012.
Team members don't need to take part in activities together, and, remember, every team member's efforts count towards the overall distance covered by the team. When you have completed your chosen distance, update your My Page and claim your reward.
2012km Challenge for Schools
Visit our information for schools to find out how we can help you set up your challenge.
We can set up your team quickly for you.
Challenge suggestion: 2012 km in a day. Perhaps your school could challenge itself to complete the whole challenge in a day by running or cycling. For a school of 400 this would be 5km each! Maybe split the challenge into houses/years to make it a bit more challenging for older pupils.
Challenge suggestion: 2012km over a term. Why not walk or cycle to school to build up some of your kilometres alongside your P.E classes and other sports activities outside of school.
*You challenge can also be the 201.2km Challenge or the 20.12km Challenge.
