The Wiltshire challenge

The Wiltshire challenge

The Wiltshire Challenge is back for 2014. Working in partnership with DC Leisure, Calne and Downton’s leisure centres, Wiltshire residents of all ages can sign up free from 7 April to take part in either:

The Wiltshire Sports Challenge – run, cycle, row, walk, swim (individual or team of up to four people)
The Junior Wiltshire Sports Challenge (15 yrs and under) – run, cycle, row, walk, swim (individual)
The Wiltshire Swim Challenge – swim only (Individual)
The Wiltshire Walking Challenge – walk only (Individual)

Run over 12 weeks, this year’s challenge is about seeing how far you can go. Each challenge has 29 stages which lead to Glasgow, the home of this year’s Commonwealth Games. Each challenge will have incentive prizes at certain distances including challenge wristbands, waterbottles and kitbags. All you have to do is get to that point to receive that prize.

Each challenge has a bronze standard, silver standard and gold standard. You may choose only to go as far as the silver standard for instance, it is up to you.

Everyone that reaches at least the bronze standard of their challenge will receive a medal and certificate at one of the two presentation events to be held in early September. Everyone who achieves their gold standard will be entered in to a prize draw to receive a free membership as one of the participating leisure centres.
