Challenge events

Challenge yourself

Every step you take will help working animals in the marathon journeys they often complete every day of their lives.

As a member of the SPANA charity challenge team, we will support you every step of the way. We’ll provide you with hints and tips on your fundraising, sponsorship forms, training advice and your very own SPANA vest or T-shirt to wear with pride.

There are challenge events taking place worldwide to suit all fitness levels, so why not to dust off your running shoes or hiking boots and do something special for working animals?
