Ready to try a Christmas Challenge? Take part in our 12 miles of Christmas Treasure Hunt and plant up to 15 trees!

Over the Christmas period, run, walk or roll at least 12 miles and collect a photo of each of the following items based (loosely!) on the 12 days of Christmas. Upload your mileage and your photos to your account and if you get all 12, we’ll add a further 3 trees!

It doesn’t matter if you live in the country or in a town, we’ve given alternatives for each option to suit your locations, what matters is you’re moving forward and together we are planting at least 12 trees.

There are very few rules – you can run, walk or roll all 12 miles in one go, or you can break it down into as many items as you like. You can do as many miles in total as you wish. The photos need to be uploaded with your evidence from your account page.
