How long will it take me to complete 40 miles?

It’s completely up to you and depends on your fitness level and chosen activities. Any exercise can count – from running, walking and cycling to HIIT classes, swimming and Pilates! 

Here’s a couple of examples:

Hike 10 miles every Saturday for 4 weeks = 40 miles or swim 5 miles per week for 8 weeks = 40 miles.

How to get involved
1. Sign up

Each challenge is priced at £12.99 and includes access to the mobile app and a collectable medal on completion.

2. Fundraise or make a personal donation

If you would prefer to make a personal donation instead of fundraising, you can add this to your entry fee when you sign up. You can make one donation to cover all Seven Wonders or donate as you go along, it’s completely up to you.

If you choose to fundraise, we would love you to try and raise £100.  

This will allow us to continue our vital work in Dorset and Wiltshire, providing a lifeline of comfort and support to children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

3. Track your progress

Start tracking your progress by connecting your favourite fitness apps or manually logging your distances on the virtual map.

Every time you add a workout, you’ll automatically advance on the map. You can also check out other people's progress and go exploring with the Street View feature!

4. Collect your medal

Each time you complete a mission, we’ll send you a collectable medal to mark your achievement. 

Supporting you all the way
You're invited to join our WhatsApp and Facebook groups, so we can support you with your fundraising and provide you with all the motivation you’ll need to make your way around the world.

"Our daughter Sophie was diagnosed with a brain tumour at seven years old, out of no-where. We were lost. Sophie battled hard for 10 months before she died.

Without Julia’s House, we wouldn’t have been able to care for our daughter at home in the way we wanted. No child should have to spend a single night in hospital and Julia’s House made that possible for Sophie. Throughout her illness she spent every night at home in her bed. That meant the world to us and to Sophie"
