We are deeply disappointed at this news, but we appreciate these decisions have not been taken lightly by the event organisers, and they were made to protect the wellbeing and safety of all participants and spectators, as well as the general public.

We are working hard to understand and plan for what this means for our amazing Team RNIB supporters. We really appreciate your patience as we manage such an unprecedented situation and prepare next steps, please be assured we will be in touch with you very soon.

We know what a huge commitment it is to train and fundraise for these events. We also know the incredible efforts our amazing supporters make to raise funds for RNIB, so that together we can break down the barriers facing blind and partially sighted people. We're aware it isn’t easy to fundraise right now so we have put together a collection of downloadable lockdown-friendly fundraising tips (PDF).

This might be a difficult and stressful time for many people and we thank you so much for all the efforts you have made so far.

Other events

We are aware that many other high-profile fundraising events are due to take place in the coming months. We will be keeping in close contact with all event organisers, as well as reviewing our own internal plans for RNIB’s own events. We will keep in regular contact with all our amazing event fundraisers, and keep you updated on any further developments.

If you have any queries or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the RNIB challenge events team by emailing [email protected] or calling 0303 123 9999.
