In May 2016, Sarah Powala took on a truly unique challenge – to run 10k every day, creating the 10k a Day in May challenge. Click here to find out more about Sarah’s 2016 challenge as featured on ITV’s Calendar.
 
In 2017, Sarah returned, along with 50 other runners across the month, covering a total distance further than Wakefield to Moscow AND raised an incredible £6,500 smashing her personal target of £6,200. 
 
“I wanted to challenge myself to do something different to say thank you to the hospice for the wonderful care they gave my Mum. It was a really hard challenge, but incredibly worthwhile. The first year I raised over £3,000 for the hospice. Last year I was humbled by the team of runners who joined in and we raised over £6,500. For 2018, I want to go bigger and better, but to do that I need YOUR help too.
 
For 2019 I want to raise £10k for the hospice. It seems an appropriate target for the challenge! But I can’t do this alone. Will you ‘Dip In’ or go ‘All In’ to help me?
 
‘Dip In’ by joining me for one or more of my 10k’s in May, either in person or by doing a 10k virtually. I’ve listed below where each run will start from, and what time. I will also share some maps of the routes through this page nearer the time. You can eun or walk, and you can even do shorter distances if you prefer - we have a number of 5k routes during the month. 
 
Not a big enough challenge? Go ‘All In’ then. Join me for every single 10k a Day In May, complete some with me and some on your own, or do like Maddie France did last year and do the full month virtually, completing all runs on your own.” 
  
All participants are encouraged to fundraise to help Sarah reach her £10k target. Entry to Sarah’s 10k a Day In May challenge is £35. £10 goes towards the cost of your exclusive “Sarah’s 10k a Day In May Challenge” technical running t-shirt and the administration of the event. The remaining £25 comes directly to the hospice, which could fund one hour of nursing care.

AND if you raise £100 in sponsorship for the challenge, you will receive a FREE Sarah's 10k a Day in May hoodie!

Join in – whether it’s a dip in or all in!
