In light of COVID-19, The Yard, along with thousands of other charities, have felt the effect of the cancellation of many challenge and community events, such as the Edinburgh Marathon. As a result, we have teamed up with Let’s Do This, to offer our very own exciting and fun ‘Go the extra yard’ virtual challenge!

Sign up for a virtual 1k, 5k or 10k on the weekend of June 6 - June 7th and set yourself a target to run or walk towards! All distances are £5 entry fee and all the profits raised will go directly to The Yard. You can complete your run at any time to suit you over the weekend of the 6 and 7 June, and then upload your results and a selfie within 48 hours to our virtual leaderboard. If you are feeling competitive, why not challenge your friends, family or work colleagues?

Prizes are available for the best finish line selfie!
