Challenge One

1 mile a day for 30 days. – This is the challenge we are taking in to schools and promoting to adults to introduce them to sport. Simply run/walk a mile a day for 30 days.

This challenge is 100% kid friendly and the more people that can get involved the greater the impact we can make.

Entry starts from £10 and if you can raise £25+ you get an official tee. There are a range of entry options that include donations - the more you donate, the more swag we'll give you.

This challenge is perfect for corporate entries, so if you're a company looking to inspire your employees and help a worthy cause please get in touch with matthew@activitywales.com

Challenge Two



This is not for the feint of heart. The challenge sounds simple: to run 1 additional mile per day for 30 days. Wherever you are in the world You can do this in your local park, local roads or on a treadmill at your local gym!

In every 24 hour period you need to go 1 mile further than previous day. e.g. day 1 = 1 mile, day 2 = 2 miles etc etc . But you do not have to do the distance in one run. Just in a 24 hour period.

To put this in perspective, if you keep adding a mile for the full 30 days you will have run 465 miles in 30 days - 190 in the final week alone.

Completing this ultimate challenge will earn you a special "BEAST" medal and put you in the company of only a handful of people who have achieved this. Currently, more people have set foot on the moon.

Please Note: Entries are limited to 25 people!

Entry is £25 which includes a free tech tee.

The Final Day

As many of us as possible will come together. Those attempting the 30 miles will start from a designated point and will run back towards Saundersfoot harbour. There will be points where you can join in the run from 20, 17, 13, 8 , 4, 2 and 1 mile out. From 2 miles out it is envisaged all entrants will gather and run to the finish line together, along with children that have been part of the challenge.
