What is the 2.6 Challenge?

The Coronavirus has hit UK charities hard, with many fundraising events cancelled resulting in a loss of income for charities nationwide. The 2.6 Challenge is a fundraising campaign to help save the UK’s charities. It starts on Sunday 26th April: the day that the London Marathon should have been taking place.


How Can I take part?

The 2.6 challenge is a fun and flexible way to raise funds for Access Sport! All you have to do is:


Get creative and think of an activity involving the number 2.6, or 26 – yes you can do 2.6 minutes of yoga, do 26 pull ups, catch a ball 26 times in a row, read a book for 26 minutes, write a song in 26 minutes, try to balance for 2.6 minutes (or maybe 26 seconds!), complete 26 sudokus, or learn 26 facts about meerkats!

Anything goes! Also, don’t worry if you can’t leave the house, this challenge is about home heroes, not superheroes!


Make a donation or set up a fundraising page here to raise funds for Access Sport.


Spread the word, by sharing your fundraising page with friends, family and colleagues.


Do your challenge any time from this Sunday 26th April. And don’t forget to keep us posted by tagging us on social media and using the hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge


*Remember whatever you choose to do for your 2.6 Challenge, it’s important to follow the current Government Guidance on social distancing and safe exercise.


Why do the 2.6 Challenge for Access Sport?

We want to continue to support the thousands of disadvantaged and disabled young people that we were supporting before the Coronavirus outbreak. During the lockdown we have seen that many of those who were already vulnerable and isolated are even more so than before. With your support, we are determined to do everything we can to continue to support them. Find out more about our Our Appeal.
