This is a walking or running challenge, the event to support Jordan Wylie’s challenge that will see him journey across the frozen Arctic and Antarctic oceans to run marathons on the North Pole and South Poles in order to raise awareness for the Matthew Bacon Bursary.


1 August 2021 - 31 August 2021


  • Humberside And South Yorkshire ACF

The August challenge is open to individuals and you can choose to either walk or run, or for those who wish to set a goal you can set a target distance.

All of which will be tracked and shown on the leader’s board on the website

The challenge will allow everyone to join Jordan Wylie on his 20,014km journey and fundraise as he trains for his polar challenges. Jordan will be using technology to connect everyone wherever they may be, whether that’s at home, in the gym or on top of the world, or the end of the earth like Jordan!

Everybody who signs up will also receive a digital Running Dangerously – The Polar Edition medal when they’ve completed their challenge and the Top 10 fundraisers will also receive an Army Cadets T-Shirt!
