Take on Stripey's virtual challenge -
any challenge, any distance, anywhere, any time!

How it works

Set yourself a challenge, at a time and place convenient for you.

It may be physical – outdoors, indoors, running, swimming, on your bike, up a mountain – whatever floats your boat! It can be all in one go or cumulative – to fit around your busy life. 

You may want to get the kids or whole family involved – the more creative and crazier the better, remember you make the rules.

On completing the challenge, you’ll receive an exclusive Stripey Stork medal.

It's that simple - are you READY, STEADY, GO

Be the winner of your own race!

How to enter

1. Register your entry

Fill in the online registration form below - if you have any queries then feel free to email challenge@stripeystork.org.uk.

2. Read your instructions

Once we receive your online form, we'll respond with an email containing everything you need to know.

3. Pay your registration fee

You can either pay the registration fee yourself. Please email challenge@stripeystork.org.uk for bank details.

Alternatively, set up your own fundraising page and share this with your friends and family. If you wish to do this, we ask that you aim to raise at least £50.

4. Complete your challenge!

All that's left to do is get training and complete your virtual challenge - we'll be eager to see how you are getting on so please tag us in your photos on social media, using the hashtag #EarnYourStripes.

5. Tell us how you did

Send us proof of completing your virtual challenge (a selfie, a treadmill screen, a running app screenshot) and once payment has been confirmed then we’ll send your virtual medal and thank you pack in the post.


How the funds may be used

Once done, you’ll be able to rest in the knowledge that you’ve contributed to providing a service which is a lifeline for local vulnerable families. Here’s what your efforts could buy:

£25 - new contents for a newborn baby pack (nappies, wipes, baby toiletries etc.), a new changing mat and Moses basket mattress.

£50 - two brand new cot bed mattresses to keep babies comfortable, safe and warm. For every pre-loved cot donated to us, a new mattress is purchased to adhere to UK safety regulations.

£100 - keep us well stocked for a month with toiletries such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, body wash and other essentials, which we add to our 'packages of care'.

Don’t fancy going it alone? Enter as a family, or as a team with your friends or colleagues.

Remember – this is the most flexible race ever, so we can make it work for you!
