We have loved seeing all the 2.6 challenges already. Thanks to you, almost £7,000 has been raised for SiMBA already and an new unofficial world record has been set, which is totally amazing!! 💜
Here's a selection of just some of your challenges:
Edinburgh#3 tri club 2.6 Challenge for SIMBA
Francesca told us "As a family, we have been personally affected by the loss of our son, Noah, who was stillborn in 2008. We received a wonderful memory box from the charity at the time and they have provided much needed support ever since. In May 2019, my sister, Joanne, started working for SiMBA as their office manager and in March 2020, I took on a voluntary role as a Facilitator for their Support Groups.
26 miles is obviously a marathon distance, so together with around 50 friends of all ages from our Triathlon Club, Edinburgh#3, we are going to collectively attempt to break the unofficial marathon world record of 1hr 59:40 set by Kipchoge in 2019, by breaking the run down into 200m sections (211x200m). Some members have agreed to do multiple sections, but our target page needs to be just slightly faster than Kipchoge's unofficial WR pace. We did it 😁 1hr 57:08 🏅🏃♂️🏃♀️ I am in total awe that these world class athletes keep up that pace for a whole two hours!"

Monica smashed her 2.6 Challenge in 3 hours yesterday and raised £1163 for SiMBA over 3 hours yesterday!
"Jonny was due to run the Edinburgh half marathon to raise money for Simba next month to celebrate Jamie’s 1st birthday. That race was postponed and Jonny missed last year’s race because of Jamie’s early arrival, so I decided to take on the fundraising gauntlet. Jamie will be 11 months old on Sunday 26th April, so yesterday, inspired by my Macfit fitness classes, I did 260 BURPEES 😛 260 SIT UPS 😝 and 260 PRESS UPS 🤯 to raise funds for SiMBA."
