2.6 Challenge

April 26, 2020 - December 31, 2020

Charities across the country have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, with many fundraising events postponed or cancelled. You can support Seafarers UK and help us to support seafarers at times of crisis by taking part in the 2.6 Challenge, a nationwide virtual challenge event taking place from Sunday 26 April.

The 2.6 Challenge is open to anyone of any age – the only requirement is that the activity must follow the Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.


Sunday 26th April onwards


At home/garden


Anything relating to 2.6 to 26. It could be running 2.6km around your garden, hopping 26 times a day for 26 days or taking up gardening for 26 minutes a day.

Why we need your support?

Thousands of seafarers are working on the frontline to keep the UK’s supply chain going throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. With your help we can make sure seafarers and their families have somewhere to turn to for support throughout the crisis. We are now closely working with our expert charity partners to identify areas of need where our support will have the greatest impact at this time of crisis.

If you have any questions about the challenge or want to take part, please contact us at events@seafarers.uk.
