Your distance. Your way!

Will you join us to run, walk, cycle, swim or even skateboard Around the World? That’s a total of 40,075km that together we need to reach!

You choose your distance. You choose how to do it:

- Alone or with friends (including the four-legged kind!)
- On land or in water
- Inside or outside


This October take part in The Big Coastal Challenge, and raise money to support grieving people. 

Sign up below for just £10 and receive a free t-shirt for registering!

We don't ask you for a minimum sponsorship, but anything you raise will be fantastic.


Here’s some inspiration to help you get going


  • Enjoy swimming?  Why not “swim” the distance from Belfast to Penzance?  That’s 502km!  If that’s a bit tough, then how about Belfast to Colwyn bay which is exactly 200km?
  • Walk a kilometre a day, every day and you’ll walk from our Southend-on-Sea branch to the East Kent branch – that’s 31km (in case you were wondering!)
  • Why not run 5km every day?  That’s 155km and that will be distance from coast to coast of Kangaroo Island in South Australia
  • If you are a cyclist, why not attempt to cycle from London to Paris – that’s 342km!
  • If you get the kids involved, you could ask them to walk 15km which is the distance between Thorpe Park and LEGOLAND
  • Do you have a Dog? Include it as part of your daily dog walk. We are sure you will get no protests from the dogs on this one! :)
