If you've registered for this challenge, you can transfer your booking to another later event in 2020, or to a 2021 challenge. Action Challenge will be in touch with you directly about this.

As coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to present challenges, our teams are working hard to adapt our services in response to the challenges presented by coronavirus, whilst keeping our beneficiaries, colleagues, volunteers, supporters and partners safe.

We’re closely monitoring the situation, in constant contact with event providers and continually reviewing our plans in line with Government and NHS advice. We’re working to keep this page updated with any news about event dates and bookings as soon as we hear.

In the meantime, if you have a question about your event booking, you will be contacted by your event provider but if not, please do contact them direct. If you have a question about your fundraising for Help for Heroes, please email our team on

Be assured we are absolutely committed to supporting the ongoing recovery journeys of our wounded, injured and sick, and their families. Thank you for your incredible support and patience at this time.

Frequently Asked Questions


The challenge is run by Action Challenge and you should register directly with them, via the 'Register Now' button. During registration Help for Heroes will already be selected, we will be told about you automatically and will be in touch. 


Half of your fundraising target (dependent on the distance you choose) needs to be received by the Charity no later than eight weeks before the challenge. This covers the cost of your participation in the challenge.

Anything you fundraise over this amount is the money that Help for Heroes can use to provide lifelong support to our wounded, injured and sick Service Personnel, Veterans and their loved ones.
