Fundraising during Lockdown – Virtual Challenges

The impact of Covid-19 has resulted in the cancellation of our events that were due to take place in recent months. Alongside our amazing Team PKD runners and challengers, we’re sad and disappointed at the cancellations, but event organisers have been working hard on alternative ways to keep you motivated and moving, whilst raising vital funds and awareness to support PKD Charity. Here are some challenges to inspire you!

Great North Run Solo

The 2020 Great North Run cancellation means we can’t all get together to run the famous 13.1 mile route on 13 September, but you can still take part in the Great North Run Solo and raise vital funds and awareness for PKD Charity 

Great North Run Solo runs until 13 September (the day the 40th Great North Run was scheduled to take place) and the challenge is to complete 40 runs and a run for each year of the Great North Run! 

You can run the Great North Run Solo at any pace and distance comfortable for you. Every runner who completes a minimum of 40 runs will receive a special edition Great North Run Solo Challenge medal and a special Team PKD 20th Anniversary medal.

Great Run Solo

Great Run Solo is a virtual running challenge, open for all, as well as challenges for children. There are weekly and monthly challenge options covering distances from 7k to 280k for adults, and the Magic Mile and 7k challenge for juniors under 14.

All profits from the entrance fee for the Great Run Solo will go to the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Urgent Appeal. Once you’ve signed up you can register to run for Team PKD and start raising vital funds and awareness to support anyone affected by PKD.

The Great British Ultra Challenge

Walk, jog, run or cycle from Winchester to Edinburgh. Target how far you intend to travel along the virtual route and stay motivated knowing where on your journey you’ve got to. Log your distance and take on as much or as little of the total course as you choose.

Spread your challenge across July and share your journey and travel with other – in real life or virtually and everyone who takes part receives a unique medal and commemorative buff.
