Group B Strep Support is challenging you to take on a virtual 5k, 10k, half marathon or marathon your way #StepsAgainstStrep
If you are you looking for a way to keep active and stay motivated while being stuck indoors, then why not take on our virtual Steps against Strep challenge. Taking part is simple. On your own or with your family complete the distance of a 5k, 10k, half marathon or marathon in your time and in your way.
Government advice is currently to stay home if you can, though it’s still safe to exercise once a day as long as you keep a 2m distance from other people. Please read the Government’s guidance which can be found here and adhere to it at all times.
Whether you complete your chosen distance in the house, in the garden, as part of your daily outdoor exercise, or just on the spot! It’s the perfect way to get some exercise while everyone is having to isolate. All we ask is that you register for the event by donating £10 to Group B Strep Support, giving you the opportunity to support the charity through this difficult time.
If you want to, you can boost your fundraising by asking family and friends to sponsor you.
We’ll send you a high-quality medal in the post once you’ve completed your virtual event, and you’ll get a digital certificate to show off your achievement on social media.

Ever since I learnt about group B Strep and the charity Group B Strep Support it’s been close to my heart and something I feel strongly about making people aware. This is why I decided to challenge myself, and Miley in her buggy, to walk twice the recommended target steps per day for a healthy adult … 20,000 steps a day in March!
