2.6 Challenge


Could you take part in the 2.6 Challenge and help raise money to help run our free audiobook service at this challenging time? Our audiobooks are a lifeline to many of our members, particularly as so many are self-isolating.

The 2.6 Challenge was founded by the London Marathon and other mass participation event organisers as a national virtual event to help UK’s charities during the Coronavirus lockdown.

The event launches this Sunday 26 April, the date of this year’s London Marathon. The idea is that as many people as possible choose a challenge around the number 2.6 or 26.  You then get sponsored or donate money to Calibre Audio.

What you choose to do is up to you, perhaps you could read with your children for 26 minutes a day? Or you could listen to 2.6 books in a week? Or for 2.6 hours a day? Maybe walk in the garden for 26 minutes or even read 26 books during lockdown, or learn 26 words in another language, hold a virtual dinner with 26 friends, baking 26 muffins, gardening for 26 days in a row or if you fancy something more physical you could run or walk 2.6 kilometres or miles, or do 26 sit-ups or press ups.
