Twelve Days of Christmas Challenge

Following the great success of this challenge for the last three years, we are bringing it back by popular demand

We know it can be hard to stay motivated at this time of year, the cold dark weather, the Christmas temptations, these daily challenges motivate you to be active in a fun way – its so much fun the whole family can get involved, even our furry loved ones!

A daily fun challenge for 12 days, a great start to work off those Christmas puddings.

We are challenging you to stay active and have a bit of festive fun for twelve days, the active challenges can be run, walked, skipped or jogged its your choice and is not a race, its inclusive for all abilities

The challenge will start 13th December and finish…. Yep you’ve guessed it after 12 days on Christmas Eve.
