12ks of Christmas

Join our festive challenge! Anyone can take part from absolutely anywhere.

12ks of Christmas

We welcome people of all ages and abilities to participate in whatever way you like to get moving.

One of our volunteers just loves an endurance challenge. He had this idea which was originally intended as a running event (albeit a pretty tough one!).

Here's how it works: at 1pm on the 11th December, you’ll get out and do 1km. You have a whole hour to get through the distance so you can decide whether you go fast or slow. You need to be finished by 2pm because at 2pm you’ll get out and do 2km, then 3km at 3pm and so on and so forth. The distance keeps accumulating and we'll see if anyone makes it to midnight.

You can stop at any point when you don't fancy doing more distance, but we encourage yourself to set a goal and challenge yourself. Some people might do 1km in total and others might carry on all through all the way to midnight (and beyond!).

For anybody who does make it to midnight and wants to continue, the timer starts again at 1am with 1km.

You can complete your kilometres from any location. Set up a hub and get your friends involved, complete the distance solo or move together as a group, it’s totally up to you. You can set up fundraisers linked to our event right here on Wonderful.org.

If running just isn’t your thing but you still want to be involved, you definitely can! We are encouraging walkers to take part and reckon with a brisk walk you could probably get up to the 5th or 6th hour. We welcome any form of self-propelled transport though so grab your skates or bicycle if that's your bag and just get involved.

Entries to the event are just £10, you'll get an event pack through the post and of course we encourage participants to fundraise as much as possible.

It’s wonderful to have access to all kinds of data, but it’s a full-time job to separate valuable news from useless noise. Maria Bartiromo
