One day I woke up with ice on my sleeping bag, freezing cold. It gave me the confidence to say ‘this has got to stop’. That’s when I found Emmaus and I haven’t looked back.

Help more people rebuild their lives after homelessness. Pick from four different challenges and push yourself this May to make a difference. Run, walk, bike – take part any way you choose.

Level one – The Classic

Complete 26.2 miles, the length of a marathon, throughout the month of May.

Level two – 70 miles for 70 years

To celebrate 70 years since the founding of the Emmaus movement, we’re challenging you to take on 70 miles. You’ll have the whole of May to complete your distance, all while raising funds to support our work.

Level three – Cambridge to Paris

Fancy something even harder? Test yourself by completing 293 miles in May. That’s the distance from the first Emmaus community in France and the first Emmaus community to open in the UK.

Level four – The Emmaus Way

This is the ultimate challenge. Complete the distance between all Emmaus communities in the UK. Stretching from Glasgow to Dover, that’s 1,600 miles. The Emmaus Way is the perfect challenge for cyclists, endurance runners, and teams who want to work together to complete the distance.

Thank you for making a difference.
