De Montfort Students' Union (DSU) are inviting you to take part in a new challenge. Even though we are stuck at home, it is important to get out safely where we can and do something that makes us feel good. However, during this time we know how hard it is to feel motivated. So, we decided to make a fun challenge for you all to take part in.  

The challenge:

Over the course of one month, we are asking you to see how many miles you can do in one month! Whether you want to walk, run, skip, skate, or fly. As long as you are getting out safely and moving! 

There are a few targets you can try to reach and each one comes with a little prize to both motivate you to next one or just show that you have achieved something for yourself. 

If you do: 

  • 10 Miles you will receive a Bronze Certificate 

  • 25 Miles will get you a Silver Certificate and the first 25 people will receive £5 vouchers 

  • 50 Miles you will receive a Gold Certificate and the first 5 people will receive £15 vouchers and the following 10 will get £10 vouchers 

  • *Terms and Conditions apply

To take part in this challenge send an email to dsucomms@dmu.ac.uk with your interest and then just keep track of how many miles you are doing! Whether this is by app, watch or map, however you choose. When you hit one of the targets send us an email with the proof that you achieved the goal, and even send in some pictures of where you went. There will be an extra prize for best picture! 

We know it is hard right now, but we hope this little incentive will help you do something for yourself and keep your mind and body moving. Remember to stay safe.  

Good luck!
