Stay active this summer by taking on one of our virtual challenges and help us in our time of great need. Each calendar month there are awesome challenges of different distances that you can register for. Once registered, you have the entire month to cover your chosen distance in however many runs, walks or cycles you like, wherever you like, whenever you like! And if you’re successful, you get a prestigious medal as a reward for all your hard work!

With a low entry fee and no fundraising target, choose from one of the activities below, select an end goal to suit your fitness level and keep you and your family moving this summer.

We hope that you will consider promoting your efforts to raise awareness and much needed funds for research into A-T. Please e-mail challenge@actionforAT.org when you have signed up.

KIDS
We particularly want to inspire young people to get moving so have distances on offer which are suitable under 16s. Kids can run, walk, cycle or use their wheelchair to complete their chosen distance. If your son or daughter is looking for more of a challenge, they are more than welcome to join an adult distance.

Action for A-T walkersWALK
Choose a distance to suit your fitness level and record your mileage using your smart phone or a fitness app for the duration of your challenge. You can take to the streets, head for the hills, use your treadmill or simply walk circuits around your house or garden to reach your target. Walking is one of the best ways to lose weight as you spend more time in the fat burning zone.

CYCLE
Choose a distance to suit your fitness level and record your mileage using your smart phone or a fitness app for the duration of your challenge. You can take to the streets, head for the hills, use your turbo trainer or home exercise bike to reach your target. Cycling is a great way to build stamina and get fit and significantly reduces the impact on your body.

RUN
Choose a distance to suit your fitness level and record your mileage using your smart phone or a fitness app for the duration of your challenge. You can take to the streets, head for the hills, use a running machine to reach your target. Remember, a mile is still a mile whether you run it in 12 or 6 minutes.
