Registration for Miles for MS 2021 is now open!
We're excited to announce that Miles for MS will be back this summer, from May - July.
To take part, all you need to do is set your own 'Miles for MS' distance challenge to complete, and raise sponsorship to support people living with MS. Whether it's half a mile, or 100 miles, you decide how far you want to go, and do it your way. You can walk, wheel, run, row, scoot, swim, and so much more... the choice is yours! You don't have to do it alone either, why not get a team together - you can get your office, friends or family involved too.
We believe keeping active at times like this is so important for our physical and mental health so hopefully getting involved in a Miles for MS challenge will help motivate you to keep moving!
Last year, our Miles for MS stars covered an amazing 19,000 miles together and raised over £90,000. This year is our fourth year of Miles for MS and we'd love for even more people to get involved. Sign up today for just £15 and you will receive an MS Trust T-shirt, your own personalised online page where you can track your progress and raise funds, and a certificate when you finish. If you raise over £150, you'll also get a 'Miles for MS' medal to wear with pride.
PLEASE NOTE: You need to be over 18 years old to register onto Miles for MS. If you are under 18, please ask a parent or guardian to sign up on your behalf.
Deciding your challenge
Pick your distance and complete it in your own time, tracking your progress on your personalised fundraising page and raising vital funds. You don’t have to do it alone either, why not get your office, gym class or family involved too?
You might decide that you want to ride 20 miles on an exercise bike or arm bike, and break it down to half a mile each session. Or maybe you want to run a marathon (26 miles) over the month, but do it by running shorter distances a few times each week. Perhaps your personal challenge would be to walk to the post box and back, and you could build up to it over the course of the month.
Here are some examples of how you can track your miles in your home or garden:
- Stair climb
- Walking lengths of your garden
- Dance step challenge (2,000 steps = 1 mile)
- Exercise trampoline (1 jump = 1 yard, 1760 yards = 1 mile).
- Tin can overhead press (1 complete lift is approx 1 yard, 1760 yards= 1 mile)
