Virtual Challenges – Until Dec 2021


Explore the UK and beyond without leaving your postcode!

We have three virtual challenges to choose from:

• Land’s End to John O’Groats (874 miles)
• Peru Inca Trail (26 miles)
• London to Brighton (54 miles)

You can run, walk, or cycle – it’s entirely up to you. You’ll be given a Willen Hospice t-shirt to complete your challenge in, and at each milestone, you’ll receive an email with an update on where you are on the route, facts about the area, and how far you’ve got to go! You have until the end of December to reach the finish line.

When you’ve completed your epic challenge, you’ll receive your very own virtual fundraising medal! AND if you raise over £400 you’ll receive our ‘Fundraising Hero’ medal as part of our 40th Anniversary celebrations.

Land’s End to John O’Groats

If you want a serious challenge then this is the one for you. Spanning the length of the UK, you may need to go out at least once a day – which isn’t a bad thing! You’ll improve your fitness, boost your wellbeing and explore new places.

Peru Inca Trail

A holiday as far as Peru seems unlikely this year, so how about completing the Inca Trail without having to step foot on a plane? Find out interesting facts about the Peruvian culture and Inca history at each milestone.

London to Brighton

Known as one of the UK’s most popular cycling challenges, our virtual version gives you the option to walk or run it as well as cycle! This is a great challenge for anyone short on time but needs some extra motivation to get out of the door and onto the pavement!

If you have any questions, email challenges@willen-hospice.org.uk.
