Take on a challenge

Could you take on a challenge and raise money for us?

We are very excited to have places at three brilliant running/walking challenge events.  We will give you all the support we can – fundraising ideas, tips and help, recommended training plans, and of course your t-shirt if you choose to take a place in a race/marathon  to let everyone know you’re taking part to support people with sight loss.

But the challenge really is up to you.

Pick an event

Race to the Stones – choose your distance (50k or 100k) and walk or run the Ridgeway – Britain’s oldest path and our favourite trail in the Region. July 2022.

Bath Half – the best half marathon in the West of England – a great route and the loudest cheers will keep you going. Takes place every March.

The London Marathon – we are so excited to have places in this world-renowned event in October 2022.  The ultimate challenge for any runner.
