Challenge events are a great way to support the charity - getting fit and achieving a goal while helping First Days support local children really does mean that everyone is a winner.


There are SO many events happening around the country that you can choose to take part in independently and raise funds for First Days. For running events or similar, we are willing to cover your entry costs (up to £50) and send you a running vest/t-shirt on the agreement that you will raise a minimum of £150 for #teamFD!

The events below are organised in-house or with our event partners. 

Just drop an email to for more information on how you can get involved.

Upcoming Events:

Twilight Runway Challenge

Run, walk, cycle, skateboard or scoot along 3km, 5km or 10km of the airstrip at Blackbushe Airport.

Organised by CMPP (Community Matters Partnership Project), the Twilight Runway Challenge attracts a wide variety of participants, from people looking to get fit, beating a personal best, taking part in fancy dress or having fun with friends, family or colleagues.
