This Girl Can : #1MileChallenge…

Last week I was kindly asked by The Running Bug and This Girl Can to be one of the first people to share my #1MileChallenge video and nominate 3 people of my choice to take the challenge. This is a national campaign to raise money for Cancer Research.

About the challenge:

#1MileChallenge… Centres around the idea that women are encouraged to run/cycle/row/walk a mile. Then record a short clip nominating 3 female friends to do the same. It’s all about making exercise fun, and something you can share and be proud of regardless of how far you go.

It doesn’t matter how you do your mile, it can be a walk round the park, a run on the treadmill at the gym or a cycle to the shops.

Want to be part of it?

Simply upload a video, no longer than 10-20 seconds which will show you finishing off your mile, and saying:

“My name is ….., and I’ve just done the Running Bug and This Girl Can One Mile Challenge. I nominate …………to do the same!”


It is like the global ice bucket challenge from a couple of years ago. Hopefully having fun doing it whilst being aware of the reason behind it. I am sure this can be just as big… Good luck everyone…

    You can do it. I suck at running. I got a lovely genetic problem from my Dad – a weak left ankle. He and I have to wear special arch supports. I hike, and play tag with my boys. I don't run any sort of distance.

    Clever idea, anything that gets women active is positive and fundraising on the side – good combo.
