The PB Challenge

Set your Personal Best on July 4th!

The idea behind the PB Challenge is to give us a reason to stay fit and active during these difficult times ; achieve something we’ve always wanted to achieve ; and raise some money for charity along the way.

How does it work?

  1. Set your own Personal Best goal. It might be to run your fastest ever 5km or 10km. See how far you can cycle in an hour. Shoot a thousand hoops in a day. Wheel chair for a mile. Hold a plank for ten minutes. Whatever motivates you!
  2. Start training.
  3. Set up a fundraising page for your favourite charity (optional).
  4. Attempt your PB on July 4th – either on your own or, lock down restrictions allowing, with others.

As an example, I’ve added a summary of my own version of the challenge below – no need for anyone else to adopt the fundraising twist!

“On July 4th I’m going to try to run a personal best : 10 km in 45 minutes. I’ve never run anywhere near that fast so, in order to fully motivate myself, I’m proposing the following. If you pledge a donation to charity then I will pay that pledge* if I don’t beat 45 minutes. Of course, if I do go under 45 minutes, then you have to honour the pledge!

*Please email / message me with your pledge – it could, for example, be to Cancer Research, the NHS or to a COVID related charity. I’ll keep a record of the pledge and then, once I’ve run on July 4th, we’ll see who has to pay it!”

About Run the World

I'm running 10 km in every country in the world - a total of 205 countries - by the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. I'm doing the Run the World challenge to promote the benefits of sport and physical activity and to raise money for cancer research following the death of my mother from cancer. If you'd like to donate to Cancer Research - - then I know they'd be very grateful.
