Q. I just signed up, now what?

A. Firstly, join the Facebook Group we set up for this challenge. Click ‘Join Group’. Once you’re in, you can get your free pack, including a t-shirt, get tips, be inspired and find out anything you want to know about the challenge!

Q. How do I keep track of how many miles I’ve done?

A. This is a self reported challenge, we’ll include a planner in your challenge pack so you can tick off each day. You can use different apps on your mobile phone or fitness trackers if you wish. You can then update the group or your Facebook fundraising page manually to let everyone know how you are getting on.

Q. How do I change the date on my fundraising page?

A. On your fundraising page in Facebook, go to manage your page and edit. You will be able to change the date here.

Q. What if I don’t complete the challenge?

A. The only thing that matters is that you challenge yourself. Do as much as you can. Every mile helps.

Q. How do I raise money?

A. Facebook Fundraisers are the easiest way to raise money. You can set one up in a few seconds here – don’t forget to set your end date for 1 September. It’s then really easy to share the page with your Facebook friends.There is no minimum target so every pound raised will make a difference.

Q. Where will my friends’ money go?

A. Directly to Refuge. You don’t have to worry about this. It happens automatically.

Q. How do I get my free t-shirt?

A. We have now sold out of t-shirts.

Q. Can I start late or early?

A. Our challenge does not start until 1 August so we will make sure you have your pack for then. You can of course join after 1st August to complete a month completing 62 miles for Refuge.

Q. Can I just raise money offline with a sponsorship card?

A. Our event is being run through Facebook though if you want to make a donation another way then please do this via our donation page on our website.
