ACTIVITY CHALLENGES TO KEEP YOU ACTIVE

 

Having an activity challenge or goal is a great way to keep yourself motivated. With many of the regular, organised events postponed last year, taking part in a local challenge could be just what you need.

They’re sometimes linked to a local charity as well, which is even better!

We’ll update this page with more challenges as they become available, or if you’re thinking about setting one up, please get in touch with us by emailing [email protected]
