Challenge Events

Be that person who does something incredible and help older people get the quality care and support they need.

Whether you like to cycle, run or fancy a go at an obstacle course, there is something for every individual – the choice is yours!

We can help you find a local 5K, 10K, or half marathon event near where you live or give you more information about taking part in an iconic sporting challenge such as the world famous London Marathon.
