PE & Fitness - The 2.6 Challenge!




Every spring, the biggest running event in the world takes place ... The London Marathon (over 26 miles). Sadly, because of the current situation, the 2020 event did not take place and this year's one may not either!


That is a real shame ... But that shouldn't stop us all having a go at something similar at home! 


The idea is that people choose a challenge, any challenge at all, related to the numbers 2.6 or 26 (the number of miles in a marathon).


You can run, walk, cycle or undertake ANY other sport or exercise for 2.6 miles, 2.6 km or for 26 minutes.

You could do the same in your home or garden, go up and down the stairs 26 times, juggle for 2.6 minutes, do a 26 minute exercise class or get 26 people on a video call and do a 26 minute workout - anything you like!


Come up with an idea for an exercise you (and maybe your whole family) could do for 2.6 miles (or km) or 26 minutes. Set it up ... and go for it!


You could try Yoga, roller skating, cycling, karate, tampolining, walking, YouTube fitness video ... anything you at all.


Just remember to tell Mr T and Miss Manley what you did ... and don't forget some photos!
