Challenge yourself by running or walking

Whether you’re a seasoned runner that needs a new motivation during lockdown, a walker that needs a fresh challenge or somewhere in between, the 10 Day 5K Challenge is an opportunity to achieve new goals whilst fundraising to support people living with cancer. If you’re needing a challenge buddy or want to pass on the challenge, nominate a friend to take on the challenge too.
