Can I alter my challenge, so I cover a longer or shorter distance, or start and finish earlier or later?

add remove

With it being a personal challenge, you can alter the challenge as needed as we understand that it’s not always possible to complete the challenge as planned. We want you to take part in whatever way works best for you, whether you reduce or increase the distance you cover or give yourself a different time frame to complete it within.

You aren’t required to let us know, unless you wish to, but it’s best to let your supporters know by posting an update on your page.

Please note, the distance leader board and badges are set to specific distances and run between 1 – 29 February. If you hit milestones outside these dates, you can request these badges by emailing facebookchallenge@gosh.org

How do I track my distance?

Please visit the Resources tab within My Dashboard to find our run tracker to keep a count of your activity. You’ll also receive a printed one with your t-shirt.

You can also add your distance manually to your fundraising page by adding this from within your Dashboard too, and sync your page with your Strava, Garmin, MapMyRun or FitBit account.

The most important thing is that you post updates on your fundraising and social media so your friends and family can see how hard you’re pushing yourself.

When I registered, I ordered a t-shirt. When till this arrive?

add remove

T-shirts will be posted in batches from the previous week every Tuesday in January.

For example, orders placed between Monday 1 January and Sunday 7 January will be processed on Tuesday 9 January.

Usually, it will take up to 7 working days from posting for your t-shirt to arrival. Please be aware that we have been seeing slower postal times so please bear with us.

I ordered a t-shirt but it hasn't arrived yet. Where is it?

add remove

T-shirts will be posted in batches from the previous week every Tuesday in February. Please allow up to 7 days for your t-shirt to be despatched and up to two weeks for it to arrive (as this allows for any potential slower postal times).

Please note, we will not be sending replacement t-shirts until 19 February. This is due to the time and costs involved with resending t-shirts. Nearly all original orders go onto arrive, with some arriving slightly later than expected. By doing this, we can ensure more of your incredible fundraising can go towards our work in helping seriously ill children. 

If your t shirt does not arrive by 14 February, pleasefill out this form https://endurancecui.active.com/event-reg/select-race?e=88393303 to reorder. The form will be open between the 14-18 February.
