2.6 Challenge

We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April to help to save the UK’s charities.

We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support the Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum.

People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, climbing up and down the stairs 26 times like your climbing a tree, to finding 26 types of wildlife in your garden. The ideas and options are endless!

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.
