Dear Friends of Tarner Community Project

We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26th April 2020 to help to save the UK’s charities.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in fundraising income. In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26th April  2020 – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event. We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26, and fundraise or donate to support Tarner Community Project via

People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends. The ideas and options are endless! The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April, but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.
