The Team Set Off at Old Trafford

We Challenge You

Get fit and improve your health by taking on a Manchester United Foundation Challenge this year.

We Challenge You

The Foundation is counting down to a series of fundraising events that will get you in shape and raise vital funds for our projects and charities. Six challenges will give people of all fitness levels and abilities the chance to get involved and help change the lives of young people in Manchester, Salford and Trafford. The activities include opportunities for runners, swimmers, cyclists, walkers and adventurers, plus a family event at the Theatre of Dreams that is suitable for all.

On Sunday 15th May, the fundraising will kick off with a duo of challenges over land and water, with MU Foundation places available at both The Great Manchester Run and The Great Salford Swim.

The upcoming Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride on 10th July will also see Manchester United fans getting together to take on a 60 mile cycle jaunt from the stadium to the South Promenade of the North West seaside resort.

For the more adventurous Reds, treks both home and away will present challenging hiking expeditions for supporters wishing to raise funds whilst exploring breath-taking scenery. First up is the Hadrian’s Wall Walk, a weekend trek which promises three-days of discovery with fellow Reds as you explore a majestic relic of the Roman army, whilst walking through the splendid landscape of the Northumberland countryside.

Finally, the fundraising challenges will culminate with a once in  a lifetime opportunity to join United Legend David May on our Machu Picchu Trek, a South American adventure that will offer a unique insight into Peruvian life and the Inca World - culminating at the breath-taking site of the ‘lost City of the Incas.’
