Get Active

What’s your new year’s resolution? Is it to learn how to play an instrument or pick up a new hobby, or could it be to Get Active? Be part of the movement by joining our Get Active for Bluebell Wood Facebook group and sharing your stories.

What can I do?

Get Running

There’s so many opportunities in 2018 for you to lace up your running shoes and start pounding the streets for Bluebell Wood. From our 5K Colour Dash to the challenge of the Sheffield Half Marathon. We’ll be behind you every step of the way and we have everything you’ll need to make your fundraising a success from sponsorship forms to our famous purple running vests.

You might like to try: The Sheffield Half Marathon, The Chesterfield Half Marathon, The Edwinstowe 10k Trail RaceActive Forest Sherwood Pines 10k Trail Race, Worksop Half Marathon, The Retford Half Marathon and Family Fun Run.

Get Cycling

If you’re more comfortable on two wheels, there’s lots you can do too. Start a Spin-a-thon with your friends and see how long you can pedal for or take your cycling challenge on the road and set your own distance adventure. If you’re taking on a cycling challenge, don’t forget to let us know. We can help you look the part with our Cycling Jerseys and give you all the support you need.

 Get Paddling

Are you looking to make a splash in the new year? Then take to the water, in more ways than one, with Bluebell Wood. After the frantic action of our last Dragon Boat Race we’ll be returning to Manvers Lake and you can be there too. If you would rather be in the water than on it, we love to hear stories of your Swim-a-thons in support of our children and their families.

Get Trekking

Why not look over the horizon for your next adventure? Join us for our Three Peaks Challenges and reach the heights of Britain’s biggest climbs or create your own story like the families who scaled Snowdon for our children in 2017. This year could be when you pull your hiking boots on, reach new peaks and even try the Peak District Challenge.

 How do I start?

We would love to hear from you about how you’re planning to get active in 2018 and we’ll try and help you to achieve your fundraising goals too. Please fill in the form below and we’ll be in touch with some ideas.

Why should I join in?
