Rapha + AaA #26ClimbsChallenge

7:00 AM Sunday
Casual (No-Drop) / Rolling Hills

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in fundraising income.

In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.

Ambitious about Autism have joined the national campaign to help support autistic children and their families during this time of crisis. Coronavirus has turned their lives upside down. Without the specialist care they rely on, many are trapped – unable to access food, support, basic healthcare.

To help raise the crucial funds needed to deliver critical services we’re asking you to complete 26 reps of your local climb in support of Ambitious about Autism. You can complete this anyway that you choose, solo or in a team. You could even get the whole family involved. You can also complete the challenge indoors on a virtual Zwift climb if you'd prefer to ride inside.

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April-3rd May, but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

Taking part couldn’t be simpler:

1. Decide on how you want to complete the challenge
