The challenge

Each participant selects a personal target distance of – 50km / 100km / 200km / 300km / 500km / 750km / 1000km – to achieve within the 30-day challenge period. Every kilometre clocked goes towards our collective target of 45,000km in 30 days by cycling, walking, jogging, running, rowing, swimming, team endeavours or a combination of these.

Challenge dates: 19th February - March 19th (30 Days)

The challenge experience is an individual endeavour towards a collective goal. We encourage you to do it at your own pace, at a time that works for your schedule and to get active in any way that works for you. We also urge you to use this challenge as an opportunity to connect and reconnect with your UCD classmates, with UCD itself, and with anyone from your network who is also a graduate of University College Dublin. We are particularly focused on forging connections among our alumni based overseas.
