Group B Strep Support is challenging you to take on a virtual 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon or your choice of distance. Maybe you could challenge yourself to climb Snowdon (24,785 steps) or the Gherkin (1,037 steps) on your stairs at home – it really is your way #StepsAgainstStrep
Are you ready to kickstart your fitness routine in the ‘new normal’? Then why not take on our virtual Steps against Strep challenge. Taking part is simple.
Steps against Strep is a great way to stay active, keep fit and fundraise. Your fundraising is needed now more than ever to ensure we can support new and expectant parents up and down the country and continue to save babies’ lives.
You choose your distance, you set the start date and then have 30 days to complete the challenge, but you can choose your pace. You could complete it on your own or with your family and friends. All we ask is that you register for the event by donating £10 per person to Group B Strep Support, giving you the opportunity to support the charity through this difficult time.
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!

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.
