What will you do for the 2.6 Challenge on Sunday 26th April?

Please take part in the 2.6 Challenge to help save our charity.

As I’m sure you are aware this years London marathon, an amazing fundraiser for many charities including St Basils has been cancelled due to the corona virus, but here’s a way you can still help us and have fun, during lockdown.

Please join St Basils for The ‘2.6 Challenge’ on Sunday 26th April!

Dream up an activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 that suits your skills and donate or get sponsored as you complete it on Sunday 26th April – the date when the 40th London Marathon would have taken place.

It can be anything…

  • Run up and down the stairs 26 times in a fancy dress outfit
  • Get the kids to sit in a bath of baked beans for 26 minutes
  • 2.6 challengeCycle 26 miles
  • Run 2.6 miles with the dog
