Join Cardiff City FC Community Foundation as we take part in the 2.6 Challenge, a nation-wide virtual event taking place on Sunday 26th April 2020.

What is The 2.6 Challenge?

Taking place on the day originally scheduled for the London Marathon, the 2.6 challenge encourages everyone to take part in a challenge of their choice and raise funds for their chosen charity.

We’re asking Bluebirds to get involved and support the official charity of Cardiff City Football Club so that we can continue to support children, young people and families across South Wales. 


Have no fear, there’s no requirement to be a marathon runner to join in, we’re seeking Home Heroes of all ages and abilities. Simply think of an activity-based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and take on that challenge on Sunday 26th April.

You could run 2.6 miles, complete 26 keep-ups, or do a workout in 26 minutes (or even 2.6 minutes) – as long as it involves 2.6 or 26 it counts as part of the challenge!
