Support catastrophically injured rugby players by fundraising and taking part in the Local Landmarks Challenge!

Open until 3rd May 2020, The Local Landmarks Challenge is a solo, virtual run, around your local landmarks. Your local landmarks could be anything from your local church, castle, park, statue, or even a post-box! Take on our event strap-line, 'The Grand. The Quirky. The Hidden', get creative and plot a run around your local landmarks in support of the RFU Injured Players Foundation.

The challenge is open to everyone, and distances over 5k qualify for the challenge. You can complete your total distance over a number of runs and multiple days – you do not need to complete it in one go.

This is a solo, virtual challenge. Please do not organise to do this in groups. The current government advice is that it's safe to go outside to run once a day alone or with a member of your household as long as you keep a safe distance from other people (at least a 2 meter distance).  Please read the Government's guidance which can be found here and adhere to it at all times.

You can take part in the Local Landmarks Challenge from today until 3rd May 2020, and we really encourage you to fundraise whilst taking part.

If you do take part and decide to fundraise please take a look at our fundraising resouces page on how to get your fundraising started.

Please don't forget to share your challenge on social media too!
