What is a Virtual Challenge?  

A Virtual Challenge is a challenge event where you choose the course, the time it takes to complete and when you want to take part! There are many to choose from, from 5ks to ultra-marathons, climbing enough steps to scale Mount Everest, to swimming enough lengths in a pool that you could have swam the English Channel. You can follow one of our pre-set Virtual Challenges or make up your own!

The Virtual #MyPRL Challenge

This free virtual challenge is open to all. It is the perfect opportunity to make the most out of your summer, to keep fit and healthy, and all the while raising vital funds for neurological research.

By joining Team #BrainResearch UK, you are helping us to fund the best research to discover the causes, develop new treatments and improve the lives of those affected by neurological conditions.

Simply choose from one of the four options below, pick a route of your choice, and then complete your challenge on 15th or 16th August:

1. My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100

100-mile ride

2. My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46

46-mile ride

3. My Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 19

19-mile ride

4. My Prudential RideLondon FreeCycle

Do it your way with your own distance (starting from 1km) and your own wheels of choice (from bike to scooter, skateboard to unicycle, get creative on non-motorised transport!)
