  • The Festive 5 x 5 Challenge

    December 26, 2021

    Lace up!

    Sign up to the Festive 5 x 5 Challenge this Christmas and raise money for Cavendish Cancer Care.

    The Festive 5 x 5 Challenge is the perfect way to work off those much loved mince pies and tremendous turkey . It’s perfect for walkers and runners alike – you don’t have to be a marathon finisher, or a regular hiker to take part. There are three levels and you can pick which challenge suits you. Complete your Festive 5 x 5ks and earn a Team Cav medal!

    Kicking off on Boxing Day you’ll have all the Christmas and New Year period to get involved.

    Festive 5 x 5 – 2 weeks

    You have 2 weeks to complete 5 x 5ks. You can complete the 5ks any time throughout your chosen fortnight, just draft up your walking or running schedule and get going!

    Festive 5 x 5 – 1 week

    You have 1 week to complete 5 5ks. For this level, you have 1 week to complete your set 5 5ks. Once again, it’s up to you how you spread these out within the week – what about Monday to Friday so you have the weekend off? Be sure to complete your 5ks within 7 days!

    Festive 5 x 5 – 1 day

    You have only 24 hours to complete 5 x 5ks! Run or walk your set 25k in 1 day. Make sure you factor in some rest time!

    Want an even bigger challenge? You could even complete all three levels, one after the other. Phew!

    The Festive 5 x 5 Challenge will be running from Boxing Day until 10th January. We’ll be here to support you and cheer you on as you do your 2 week, 1 week, or 1 day stint (or all three!). Keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, where we’ll be promoting a variety of easy to challenging routes to inspire you. You can complete your own well-known trail or explore somewhere new.

    There’s no booking fee to take part – all we ask is that you rally the support of your friends and family by asking for a donation in sponsorship. Every penny you raise will help us enormously as we continue to support those who have been affected by cancer.

    £55 will cover the cost of 2 hours of professional therapy for someone who has been diagnosed with cancer, or caring for someone with the disease – raise this amount and you will be providing care to someone who needs it the most right now.

    Sign up using the short form below, and you’ll receive an email from us with further information on how to set up your online sponsorship page. Thank you SO much for your participation and support!

    If you need any help at all drop us an email at hello@cavcare.org.uk.
