About the Event

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.

We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support Happy Days Children's Charity.

People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends. The ideas and options are endless!


So whether you walk 2.6 miles every day for 10 days, do 26 minutes of walking or jogging - recreate the London Marathon your way and help make a difference!

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

There are just five simple steps to take:

1.      Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here

2.      Head to the donation page link below to donate whatever you can afford ­or to set up a fundraising page for Happy Days

3.      Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge

4.      Complete your challenge

5.      Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge
