Epilepsy Research UK is thrilled to be one of the charities you can support through the #TwoPointSixChallenge!

This Sunday would have been the 40th year of the London Marathon – the world’s biggest one-day fundraising event. To mark the occasion and help support UK Charities, join ERUK and millions of people around the country by taking part in the The 2.6 Challenge.

You don’t need to be a marathon runner to take part, all you need to do is create a challenge involving the numbers 2.6 or 26. It could be as simple as donating £26. But if you’re feeling more adventurous you could run, skip or hop 2.6 miles, bake 26 cupcakes, do 26 minutes of yoga- anything can be a 2.6 fundraiser!

We’d love to know what brilliant ideas you come up with so get sharing pictures or videos of your challenge on social media using the hashtags #TwoPointSixChallenge and #VirtualTeamERUK – this will also bag yourself  a place in our coveted Winners Gallery.

You can find more information on The 2.6 challenge and how to set up your own fundraiser here.

Whatever you decide to do please make sure you follow government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.
