3000 Mile Challenge

Get outside, get active and join our 3000 Mile Challenge!

Join other supporters of The Baca Charity and take on the 3000-mile challenge, help us collectively walk 3000 miles and raise money for young people seeking asylum. After a long year of lockdowns, it is a good opportunity to get outside, get walking and come together as a community to do something good!  

What is the 3000 mile challenge?  

The average length of a journey made by a young person seeking asylum in the UK is 3000 miles, and can take as long as two or three years. Every year, supporters of Baca are challenged to walk, run or cycle and raise money to provide more support to young people at Baca. While the challenge is running for 12 weeks, between 19th June- 11th September, you can join in as much or as little as you are able, setting your own target to help us reach our collective goal. 

Last year our supporters walked more than 6000 miles, can you help us beat our record?
