The aim of the Fitmums & Friends 365 Challenge is to complete 365 miles or 365 hours of physical activity, or a combination of both, in 365 days. Any activity counts – running, walking, cycling or buggy pushing, gym/bootcamp classes, swimming, dancing, team sports, dog-walking, gardening, etc.
Children can take part too and are challenged to complete 365 hours of activity in a year; preferably sixty minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day. Again, any activity counts – walking, scooting or cycling to school, PE lessons, active break times, sports clubs, playing ball games with friends, dancing, swimming…
For each mile or hour of activity, challengers colour in a mosaic tile on a choice of activity charts (more about these below). For already active individuals, how many charts can you complete in 365 days?! You don’t have to start the challenge on January 1st – choose your own start date and aim to complete the challenge within 365 days.
The challenge is open to all: adults and children, Fitmums & Friends members and non-members, living in the UK or abroad. For just £5, you will receive your choice of chart, a milestone certificate at 100, 200 and 365 tiles and a medal upon completion, with all entry fees going directly to support the work Fitmums & Friends does in local communities to help people become more active. (Additional charts cost £2.50; additional medals £5.00.)
Thanks to Springfield Solutions and Process Black, we have a selection of mosaic activity charts which you can use to record your miles or hours. This year’s charts are all about celebration – celebrating Fitmums & Friends’ 10th anniversary year, and celebrating our favourite charts from the past two years. Enjoy choosing your chart and planning your colour theme:

Let us know when you have completed your 365 Challenge by emailing a photo of your finished chart to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a beautiful medal!
Once we receive payment and contact details, we will send you an email with a link to a downloadable activity chart. Print this off – we recommend printing on A3 paper for best results but it will also work on A4 paper. Now you are ready to start the challenge. Your 365 days start from the day you choose.
During your challenge, keep in touch with us via the 365 Challenge Facebook page. Post pics of your chart and tell us how you are getting on. We love to hear your stories and who you are inspiring!
