Once you’ve filled in the registration form, a page will be created for you where you can collect your sponsorship. You’ll be able to customise it with all your details and then share with everybody you know.
The challenge will run throughout August 2021, but you can get sponsored from the very minute you sign up!
No, you can choose to use a different fitness tracker, or manually input your distance, but we do recommend linking Strava to your page.

Of course! Simply sign up, edit your challenge dates and go whenever suits you.
The Running Dangerously project started in 2018 when extreme adventurer Jordan Wylie decided to run marathons in some of the most dangerous and challenging locations on earth. The campaign has been all about inspiring people to run (or walk), get outside and raise funds and awareness for important causes. For the first time ever, now is your chance to get involved in the Running Dangerously project.
You can join Jordan (virtually) and help him get from the North Pole to the South Pole in Antarctica which is where he will be running marathons later this year as part of the Running Dangerously – The Polar Edition project.
