NHS 1000 miles

The NHS’s 75th birthday will take place in July 2023 and people across the country are being asked to join the NHS1000 mile challenge to mark the occasion. Those taking part are asked to walk, run, swim or cycle (or a combination) the distance of 1,000 miles in the year. That’s an average of 2.74 miles per day.

Participants are encouraged to keep a record of their weekly miles and are invited to share their progress on Sunday nights at 7.30pm using the hashtag #NHS1000miles. As well as being a great way to mark the birthday, physical activity is good for your body and mind. And it’s completely free to take part in NHS1000miles!

However, why not get sponsored to complete your 1,000 miles and raise money for Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Charity?
