The 5 x 5 Challenge!

10th August 2020

Lace up and support local families affected by cancer! Sign up to the 5 x 5 Challenge for Cavendish Cancer Care and run, walk or jog your way to 5 5ks in 2 weeks, 1 week or just 1 day.

Lace up!

Sign up to the 5 x 5 Challenge this August and raise money for Cavendish Cancer Care, local cancer care charity.

Have you recently started running and need some extra motivation?
Do you enjoy walking but want to check out some new routes?
Has your organised run been postponed, but you don't want all that training to go to waste?

The 5 x 5 Challenge is your next fitness challenge! It’s perfect for walkers and runners alike – you don’t have to be a marathon finisher, or a regular hiker to take part. There are three levels and you can pick which challenge suits you. Complete your 5 5ks, raise sponsorship, and earn a Team Cav medal!

2 weeks

You have 2 weeks to complete 5 5ks. You can complete the 5ks any time in your chosen fortnight!

1 week

You have 1 week to complete 5 5ks. Once again, it’s up to you how you spread these out within the week – what about Monday to Friday so you have the weekend off? Be sure to complete your 5ks within 7 days!

1 day

You have only 24 hours to complete 25k!

Want an even bigger challenge? You could even complete all three levels, one after the other. Phew!

The 5 x 5 Challenge will be running throughout August. We’ll be here to support you and cheer you on as you do your 2 week, 1 week, or 1 day stint (or all three!). Keep an eye on @cavendishcancercare where we’ll be promoting a variety of easy to challenging routes to inspire you. You can complete your own well-known trail or explore somewhere new.

There’s no booking fee to take part – all we ask is that you rally the support of your friends and family by asking for a donation in sponsorship. Every penny you raise will help us enormously as we continue to support those who have been affected by cancer.

£55 will cover the cost of 2 hours of professional therapy for someone who has been diagnosed with cancer, or caring for someone with the disease – raise this amount and you will be providing care to someone who needs it the most right now.

You can sign up and find out more by following this link: and completing the short form at the bottom of the page. Once we have your details, you'll receive an email with all the information you need to get started.
