2.6 Challenge

People of all ages and abilities took part in the 2.6 Challenge on Sunday 26th April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon – 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 or for 26 minutes. The ideas and options for fundraising are endless!
