Every person that completes the challenge will be entered into a free prize draw for items including 1, 2 or 3 months’ free membership, personal training sessions, QMU Sports merchandise...
All you need to do is walk, run, row, cycle or cross-train your way to complete 5k every day. Use our challenge to kick start your way to a healthier lifestyle.
