If climbing the stairs isn’t your thing, why not take on one of our stay home adventures and use your local area to keep busy and challenge yourself!

Climb Mount Everest (8,848m) Mount Everest is Earth’s highest mountain above sea level standing at 8,848m above sea level, the giddy heights of Everest’s summit are the same height as trekking to the top of Bristol’s Park Street 152.6 times! You could do it in one weekend or cover the elevation a little bit every day! If you know another steep hill near where you live, use that hill instead! All you need to do is find out the elevation and let Strava do the recording for you.
Cycle from London to Paris (311 miles) London to Paris is a fantastic cycling challenge so don’t let Coronavirus hold you back as you can cycle from London to Paris without leaving the South West. 22.4 laps of the Bristol and Bath Railway Path will give you the same cycle challenge, without the travel risk. If you know another route or want to cycle a little bit every day around where you live, all you need to do is track the miles on Strava until you get to 311 miles to complete the challenge!
Swim the length of the English Channel (21 miles) Crossing the 21 miles between the UK and France by just splashing your arms and legs in open water is no mean feat. As a crow flies it works down to 1,352 lengths of a 25m swimming pool You can swim your 21 miles any way you wish, just keep track of the miles you’ve covered using Strava and don’t forget to upload them to your JustGiving page as evidence of all your hard work!
