This challenge is all about doing sports together and is perfect for families and youth groups. Learn one new sport and do two of the following – a run, walk, cycle or swim. It is accessible for everyone including those with younger children or those who want to involve elder members of the family.
There are two parts to this challenge:
Take on an Olympic or Paralympic sport. Whether this is taking part in a competition, or having a lesson it's entirely up to you! Choose from the list of 30 Olympic and Paralympic sports. If you want coaching you can then use our Sports Finder to see what provision there is for that sport near you. Contact the club, coach or event (or ask us to do it for you) and arrange to do your sport. When you have completed your sport, update your My Page and make sure you collect your sponsorship money!
Complete any two of the following challenges together:
- Swim 500 metres
- Run 1500 metres
- Walk 5000 metres
- Cycle 10000 metres
You can complete the distances over more than one day and you can download an Activity Tracker to help you measure your progress. Update your My Page when you have completed each sport and make sure you collect your sponsorship money!
