It's a strange time right now and a lot of events have been postponed or cancelled, but there's now a way for you to challenge yourself and raise vital funds for YoungMinds from the comfort of your own home.

Have you ever wanted to reach the summit of Mount Everest? Or hike the Inca Trail to Machu Pichu? Or perhaps a good old-fashioned run is more your style? Well now you can do all of these things virtually with some amazing virtual events.

You can find out more about the virtual events available, and register to take part, here.

How it works

Sign up to the race of your choice and complete it by replicating the distance in your own time - either at home or outside if you can adhere to government guidance on social distancing.

While you're doing your challenge, make sure to wear a fitness tracker, watch or any other tech device which can measure the distance you've run, and take a picture of it as evidence when you've completed your challenge.

Send this picture to [email protected] with your name, the name of the challenge you did and our charity name. All you have to do then is sit back and wait for your medal to arrive!

N.B. If you don't own a fitness tracker, watch or similar tech device, during isolation we will also accept daily written logs or a picture of you at the end of your challenge with your time and distance written on a piece of paper.
