If you're the kind of person who likes to push themselves the extra mile then Compassion Challenges is for you.

We’re a community of supporters across the UK who are running, cycling, mountain biking, walking and so much more, to see poverty eradicated in our lifetime.

Whether you want to run 5k or a marathon to release vulnerable babies and children from poverty, we’d love for you to join us.

Your next adventure awaits.
