On 8th September 2022, Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully at her home in Balmoral.
In celebration of the life of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, we are bringing you a challenge that you can complete anywhere in the world. Queen Elizabeth II has served the United Kingdom for over 70 of her 96 years and for this we thank you.
This event is open to everyone and you can complete your distance in any method that allows you to track distance. Examples include – running, walking, cycling, rowing, swimming, cross training, indoor gym equipment, scooting, etc. Complete your distance (broken down in as many events as you like) between 19th September – 16th October 2022 to earn your bling! There are a number of key numbers that you could strive for in either km or miles. No pressure though – this challenge is yours to celebrate the life of the Queen in whatever way you want. There are no minimum mileage requirements in this event making it suitable for all ages and abilities.
The Queen in numbers:
35 – the number of countries that displayed the Queen’s image on their bank notes.
70 – the number of years as reigning monarch.
96 – the age of the Queen at the time of her death.
The more mileage you do, the higher up the results table you’ll climb. We only require one submission of evidence so please upload only once you complete the challenge.
Submissions proving your distance will be required by 19th October 2022 at 12 noon to claim your medal.
Once you have submitted, patiently wait for the post to arrive with your medal which will be sent within 5 working days* after approval of your submission!
A minimum of 20% donation (from the full price entry) will be donated to Royal Voluntary Service.
