When do I need to complete My Marathon My Way by?
We're suggesting you do this in April but you have the whole of Spring to take this on as traditionally this is marathon season. Even though we must social distance and adhere to government guidelines with regards to COVID-19, Spring can still be your marathon. Just track your miles until you reach your goal.
Can I do this challenge during the current COVID-19 climate?
According to the government guidelines, for those of you who it's suitable for, it's important for your mental and physical health to exercise outdoors if you can. 'You can also go for a walk or exercise outdoors if you stay more than 2 metres from others'. (gov.uk) So we suggest you make the most of your opportunity to exercise once a day and track your miles for My Marathon My Way by running or walking outside. You could even do this in your garden, on your staircase and even your balcony! Read more of the government guidelines by following this link: https://bit.ly/39jvGbe
How much should I raise for My Marathon My Way?
We suggest setting a target of £100 but there is no minimum or maximum for this challenge. Whatever you are able to raise will help to support bereaved families during this difficult time.
