The 2.6 Challenge

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.

People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge 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. The ideas and options are endless!

All you need to do is take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support Herefordshire Mind!

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

There are just five simple steps to take: 

1. Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here

2. Head to to donate 26 – or whatever you can afford – to Herefordshire Mind or set up a fundraising page using the button below:  

Create a fundraising page using Virgin Money Giving

3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you  and challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge

4. Complete your challenge!

5. Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge and #HerefordshireMind

We hope you’ll join the nation in The 2.6 Challenge to support Herefordshire Mind and help to save the UK’s charities.
