What is a Virtual Sports Challenge?
A Virtual Sports Challenge can be completed anywhere, at any time, by anyone. It is a sporting activity or fitness goal that you set for yourself. You can try running, cycling, walking, swimming, rowing, yoga, pilates, boxercise, the list is endless. It can be done outdoors during your daily exercise allowance or it could even be done from the comfort of your own home.

Our supporter Leisha Cronin, took on a 1,000 mile challenge in 2019 and this is what she had to say:
In doing a virtual challenge I was in control of timelines and which challenge I completed. The initial idea of walking 1000 miles in a year seemed massive and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to complete it, but I finished my challenge in October 2019, with over 2 months left on the ‘clock’.
