Ho Ho Go! Challenge

Click Here To ENTER!

Make January count with our Ho Ho Go! challenge, where YOU set your own goal, whether it’s to run or walk each day, cover 100 miles in a month on legs, wheels or water, or a one off challenge to stay active. 

YOU choose & WE reward you with a marvellous medal. Share your journey with us & you could win a place in the 2021 event of your choice. 

ENTER NOW BY CLICKING HERE  & complete your challenge by 31st January 2021.

All entrants will receive a special edition, bespoke Christmas medal and a randomly selected Santa or Elf hat to wear while taking part in your challenge. We will send these out as soon as we can after you have entered.

Our aim is to help raise funds for Northern Lights Children's charity and inspire the population to have fun, keep active during the festive and New Year period to beat the usual Chrimbo Limbo inactivity. 

100% of Ho Ho Go's profits will go straight to Northern Lights, entrants have the option to include an additional donation to the charity during the entry process.

How do I take part?
Enter the event below, set yourself your own challenge and decide how you want to take part. You can set any goal, complete your challenge in your own way, using any method of activity, over any duration or distance. Whatever challenge you set yourself or however you take part, make sure to tag us on social media and send us pictures of you wearing your hats while you're out running, swimming, walking, cycling or any creative ways you can think of to keep active. 

Get creative and have fun! In addition to your festive hat why not take part in full fancy dress or Christmas jumpers, create the most festive activity you can think of or draw the best route on your tracking app? 

We will hold a competition for the best selfie, outfit, festive activity and creative route where you can win a free place into your choice of one of our 2021 events plus other goodies. That's FOUR different chances to WIN!

Once you have completed your challenge, snap a picture with your medal and hats, tag us on social media and share your pictures.
