father's day challenge

17-18th june 2023

100 KM walk or run along the Ridgeway 

Join us on our next father's day challenge to walk or run 100km in 24 hours and raise £100K.

chapter2 has a growing waiting list of boys in reading who have no contact with their dad and need a male mentor.

so our challenge is to walk or run as far as we can along the ridgeway into reading in 24 hours to raise £100K to end this crisis.

will you join us?

challenge description

Covering 100KM along 'Britain's oldest road' the route passes through two areas of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) and takes in a number of archaeological sites including Avebury stone circle, white horse carvings and bronze age forts.  

The route starts in Pewsey and ends in Reading Town Centre (close to the central train station and bus station).

The challenge is to see how far you can go along the 100KM route in 24 hours!

the real challenge

The waiting list for mentors in Reading continues to grow. Chapter2 is aiming to raise £100K to expand its operations to meet this growing demand.

Approximately 1 in 2 boys aged 15 are not living with both parents, of which >90% aren't living with their father.

Help bring an end to the fatherless generation by raising funds for Chapter2.

important information for fundraisers


The cost to participate in the 100KM challenge is £95 per person, which covers the costs of logistical support during the challenge. This is paid directly to our partner Will4Adventure.


All participants are expected to raise at least £1000 in sponsorship. Fundraising advice will be provided. Most fundraisers found it's much easier than they thought to raise £1000 (with the average per person in the last 2 years >£2000).


All funds raised by this challenge will go directly to support the expansion of Chapter2s work to write hope into the fatherless story.
