** This event is open to Lloyd’s Corporation employees only. Please use your work email address when completing the registration **


We’re inviting every single one of you to lace up your trainers, dust off the bike or get
the goggles on this September.


Looking after our physical health and mental wellbeing is more important than ever.
Exercise is one of the ways we can do this, as is coming together as team to support
each other achieve a common goal. Which is why we’re setting ourselves the
challenge to run, walk, cycle or swim 10,000km in just 7 days and raise thousands of
pounds to help those who need it most.

10,000km is just shy of 1,429km a day. So, what does that equate to per person?
- If 100 of us sign up, that’s 142km over the week – or 20km a day
- If 250 of us sign up, that’s 40km over the week – or 5.7km a day
- If 500 of us sign up, that’s 20km over the week – or just 2.8km a day
- If all of us sign up…we will have to up our target!

It won’t be easy, but we love a challenge!

To personalise your contribution there are a range of distances per activity, and to
add some friendly competition we’re inviting you to sign up in teams by Directorate.

By getting active and pushing your limits you’ll be healthier, happier and raising
money for loads of good causes.

Prizes up for grabs!
If the feel-good factor isn’t enough, there is also the chance to win a host of great
prizes throughout the challenge. But you’ve got to be in it to win it! From daily
challenges, prize draws and a few secret spot prizes there will be chances for
everyone to win. Look out for our emails to find out more!

How does it work?
- Follow the relevant link to join your Directorate’s team
- Choose your discipline and your distance to complete over 7 days

- Walk/Run: 10km, 21km, 42km
- Cycle: 50km, 100km, 250km

-Sign up to your choice of activity and distance. Please use your work email address when prompted on the registration form

- The entire distance can be done in one day, split across all seven days or anything in between

- You’ll need to track your distance with a smart watch, tracking device or App and when you finish take a screenshot of the activity

- You then log your distance and load the evidence (which will be verified by our judge!) to the Let’s Do This platform, along with any pictures of your activity – these will appear immediately in the Finisher's Gallery

you to make your kilometres matter.

When you sign up the platform, you will be able to make a voluntary donation to our
nominated charity, Habitat for Humanity, and we will match all donations made.

Or, and this would be even better, we’re encouraging you to set yourself a
challenging goal and fundraise for a charity of your choice and we’ll match the money
up to the value of £10,000. Follow the link below to the Lloyd’s Corporation charity
