What challenge can I take on?

The 42 Challenge is open to everyone – no matter your age, hobbies, interests or fitness ability. Choose your own 42 challenge to take on within the month of April.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • run 42 miles or 42km (26 miles) in the month of April
  • bake 42 cakes to share with friends and family
  • do 42 fitness workout moves (squats, sit-ups or lunges) each day
  • hold a virtual quiz with 42 questions
  • cycle for 420 minutes in a week (that’s 7 hours – one hour a day for a week?
