Heroes Virtual 100k Challenge

Heroes Virtual Challenge

01 - 30 September 2019
Various locations
Moderate - Tough

One month. 100k in your own time, in your own way. Raise funds for our veteran community.

To enable everyone to take part in the Heroes Challenge and commemorate D-Day 75, the event has gone ‘virtual!

Complete a total of 100km in 30 days. Our Heroes Virtual Challenge can be completed anywhere, at any time, by anyone. Run, walk, cycle, swim, row, or do whatever you like. Set your challenge, do it your way by September 30 and raise vital funds to support services and care for Royal Navy and Royal Marine veterans. This includes staffing, entertainment and room comforts in residential homes, as well as free physiotherapy and chiropody treatments every week. 

Not only that, but our Heroes Virtual Challenge is a great way to keep individuals and serving personnel motivated and accountable for their fitness goals. Join as an individual, or take part in a team. The best part is you can complete our virtual challenge from your own hometown or anywhere in the world, and yes even on board your ship!
