The 2.6 Challenge

26 April 2020 | 9:00am

A nation-wide virtual challenge event taking place on April 26th 2020 and we want you to join us for it!

The 2.6 challenge is a nation-wide FREE virtual challenge event taking place on 26th April 2020, the original scheduled day for the London Marathon.

Join Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest for the 2.6 Challenge and help us to ensure nobody faces a mental health problem alone.

“MindCHWF provided me with a lifeline when I had nowhere else to go and no one else to turn to.”

Emily - Service User

But have no fear! You don’t need to be a marathon runner to take part! We’re looking for people of all ages and all abilities to take part in an activity around the numbers 2.6 or 26  on Sunday 26th April.

You could bake 26 cupcakes, skip for 26 minutes or run 2.6 miles- anything goes, as long as there’s a 26 or 2.6 in there somewhere!
