Challenge events


You can support Amref’s life-saving projects in Sub-Saharan Africa by taking on a challenge and raising sponsorship.  You can choose from finding an event and signing up yourself, to getting in touch with us and taking up a charity place.

Challenges include runs – from 5k to a full marathon, bike rides both in the UK and overseas, walks and treks all over the world, or even skydiving.
Amref also has guaranteed places in the London Marathon, which takes place in April each year.
Kamal Dalal, ran and fundraised for Amref in the 2016 race and smashed the fundraising target of £2,000.
“I was so proud to fly the Amref flag by taking part in the London Marathon. It was my very first marathon so I was pretty nervous taking on the challenge. But raising money for a cause that is so important to me spurred me on and, come race day, it was worth every hour of training and discipline! The team at Amref was incredibly supportive and I was thrilled to have raised nearly £10,000. If you’re thinking about signing up, my advice would be: just do it!”
Applications for 2018 are now CLOSED and will re-open for the 2019 Marathon in September/ October 2018. If you have any further questions, or would like to fill out an application form in advance, please get in touch via the contact details below.
