Join the FCD 20 Mile Challenge

We need you! Join the FCD team in our virtual race as we individually run, walk or cycle 20 miles between 1st June - 30th June 2021 and help us raise funds for SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity.

We have been partnered with SSAFA since 2017, and in that time have raised over £20,000 to help armed forces personnel and veterans in need. 

In our 20th year, we want to make this extra special and have set ourselves an ambitious target to raise £20,000 in just one year from all of our annual fundraising activities!


As part of our 20th year fundraising effort, we are hosting a national 20 Mile Challenge. All you have to do is run, walk or cycle 20 miles between 1st and 30th June 2021. Do it on your own, or with friends and family, all in one go, or in stages. It’s totally up to you!

It is just £12.99 to take part, £5 of which goes straight to SSAFA, The Armed Forces Charity, and you can raise more in sponsorship by asking friends and family to sponsor you too. 

Let us know you’ve joined and progress updates by using the hashtag #FCD20 on social media, and submit your mileage results to receive a special FCD 20 Mile Challenge medal! Submit link will be available from the 1st June. In the meantime, download our free FCD 20 Mile Challenge mile tracker here.

You can also set up your fundraising page for additional sponsorship here: 

Zoe Critchley, Marketing Manager, and the virtual event coordinator said:

“Our 20th anniversary celebrations may have been hampered by Covid restrictions, but in true British-style, we are determined to continue our solidarity and commitment to our military community. I have signed up am looking forward to getting my running trainers back on!”


If you are unable to take part but wish to support our team you can still sponsor us by donating to our JustGiving page here.
