Get Active in body and mind this April!

A month-long active challenge, with a puzzling twist!

Whether you are a seasoned race participant, someone wanting to build up an exercise routine, or an inspiration team leader wanting to motivate and inspire your colleagues, the Fool's Errand Challenge is perfect for you!

You set the goal...

...we set the challenges.

When you sign up, you commit to exercising every day in April 2022. This could be steps, kilometres run, miles cycled - whatever you want.

What you don't get to set is the daily challenge.

These are sent out via email the day before - to give you a little preparation time - in the form of a small word/logic puzzle. Full hints will be available online from this website, and none restrict your challenge, but add an element of variety to the day's events.

Can you complete the challenge:

Saying hello to every stranger on your route

In a woolly hat

With the brightest possible socks

...and NOT have a smile on your face?! 

For the race pro

We are hosting daily tables of common race distances, using user submitted entries. There will be prizes fro the best in each category, as well as most improvements over the month.

For the beginner

This is your chance ot shine! Celebrate each day's achievements online using the #FoolsErrand hashtag, where we will award spot prizes for participation and... general JOY! 

For the Teams

As well as offering discounts for Healthcare and Emergency Service and Education teams, we are preparing league prizes too, to enable teams to celebrate in style!

Is this for Charity?

The fees go toward paying for a medal and the administration of the challenge, as well as the daily puzzles and support. You are more than welcome to make this a sponsored event, and can recommend these sites to support you!
