Are you looking for your next challenge to keep you entertained during this strange time? We are all allowed to do one form of exercise outside of the house each day. Why not give your exercise a little focus?
Maybe you’re new to running, maybe you run a lot – What if you took this opportunity push yourself to do something epic! Even if your starting running for the 1st time, in 12 months you could go from zero to hero!
No. 1 – It’s your chance to push yourself and your running to the next level
No. 2 – It’s an opportunity to do something incredible for charity.
Running has many benefits to your health, both physical and emotional wellbeing. More importantly progress is the true pursuit of happiness, and this challenge is likely to last all year as you tick your runs off the calendar.
We are really looking forward to seeing your journey on social media, so don’t forget to track your run on a running app like Strava & #10TENK
How do I qualify for the Medal?
During a specified 12 month period of your choosing, you need to run and evidence TEN x 10K runs. Right now, as we are all impacted by Covid-19 these runs can be part of your daily exercise.
Hopefully very soon, we will have some medal runs back in the diary. Either way, evidence your run with a screen grab of Strava or other fitness apps.
Once you have hit your ten and hit your minimum fundraising target of £100 we will send you your unique 10TENK Challenge medal.
What if I did further than 10k, will it still count?
Of course, we bow down to your awesomeness!!!

Do you have any copy I could add to my Just Giving page about DB4C & The Children’s Air Ambulance?
A little about Children’s Air Ambulance – UK wide
The Children’s Air Ambulance is a national service, flying critically ill babies and children from one hospital to another for specialist care. They are the first and only dedicated neonatal and paediatric helicopter emergency transfer service in the country. The bespoke, specialist equipment on board our helicopter provides a flying intensive care unit for babies and children. When a child is too sick to fly, they fly a specialist team to them. With flight times commonly over four times quicker than transfer by road, in many cases, time saved is a life saved.
What happens if I get injured?
We hope it doesn’t but if it does, don’t forget we accept training runs too.
