How it works

Complete your 100 miles between 1 and 31 May. This is a virtual challenge that you can adapt to suit your ability – choose to walk or run 3.25 miles each day or cover a longer distance on fewer days. Demand for our services remains high and every mile you cover will help raise vital funds and awareness for our specialist mental health treatment.

Register

Go the distance

Walk, run or roll your 100 miles during May. Record your miles on our handy printable tracker or link your fitness tracker to your fundraising page.

FAQs

When will I receive my T-shirt? 

When your fundraising has reached £10, we’ll post your T-shirt. Make sure you’ve completed our registration form so we know where to send it. 

Do I have to be over 18 to join the challenge? 

Under 18s are welcome, although you have to be over 18 to join the Facebook Group.  If you are under 18 and want to take part, get your parent or guardian to join the group and set up your fundraising page here.

How do I record my miles? 

We have a handy printable tracker in the media tab of the Facebook group and the resource section of our event page, you can also connect your fitness tracker to your fundraising page! You can keep track of your miles however you like, have a chat with other fundraisers in the Facebook Group and see how they’re recording theirs.  

  

Can I start late or early? 

Of course, you can!  We’d like you to try and complete your miles by 31 May but you can start whenever suits you! 

What’s the best way to smash my fundraising target? 

Share, share, share! Share your progress, share your photos but more importantly, share your fundraising page. We also have handy pre-written social media posts and emails to make sharing your fundraising page simple. The more you share, the more people will see it and the quicker you’ll reach your fundraising goal! People often need reminding 2 or 3 times before making a donation, so don’t be afraid to keep sharing.

How do I upload photos and videos to the Facebook group? 

To share a photo or video on the group click on ‘write something’ to type your message, there will also be an icon of a photo, click on that and you will be able to select a photo from your library to include. We absolutely love to hear how you are all getting on so please do share, share away in the group! 

How do my friends donate to my fundraiser? 

Share your fundraising page with them and they can use the donate button to show their support. 

How do people donate if they’re not on Facebook?

Will I receive a medal?

Do I need to provide evidence to Combat Stress that I’ve completed all 100 miles? 

No, we trust you!  You don’t need to send us evidence to prove you’ve completed the challenge.  We do recommend that you update your Facebook Fundraisers and post on your social media accounts where you are with the challenge to let friends and family know how you’re getting on!  There will be progress badges available in the 100 Miles in May Group and on our event platform. We recommend sharing photos and videos of you doing your miles and please also share them with the group as we’d love to see as many of your pics and films as possible?
