More about this event
A step challenge is simply a personal challenge to see how many steps you can do, making it a virtual event means you can chalk up steps anywhere you go. What's more is that its a team event too. As a team we're collectively trying to cover the 4,200 miles (in just one month) that our supporter Eric completed in 2018 when he ran across the USA. 

What can you expect from us?

  • An exclusive medal (to be posted to you on completion of the challenge)
  • A fully accessible event
  • A dedicated fundraiser
  • Personalised fundraising support
  • Training support
  • Regular team e-newsletters

  • Not to mention heaps of encouragement, help and advice

Training support
