How to take part

All you have to do is sign up for free and your Enthuse fundraising page will be set up for you. You can then share this with friends and family to start fundraising straight away!  The funds you raise will help us rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals.

Next, decide how you want to do your miles. Whatever your sport or fitness level, you can take part and there's no need to do all 50 in one go. Wheelchair, buggy, bike, roller skates, scooters, they're all eligible (although we draw the line at cars!). Why not mix it up?

  • Receive a donation during your challenge and we'll send you an RSPCA certificate and pin badge.
  • Raise £100 and you'll also get your own RSPCA cotton T-shirt.
  • Raise £200 and we'll sign you up for a year's subscription to our Animal Life magazine too! Fundraisers aged 12 or under will receive a year's Animal Action magazine subscription.

Now all you need to do is get moving!

2022 Fundraisers

Sarah and her son Josh, from Clitheroe enjoyed walking in the great outdoors with their rescue dog, Rhea. Averaging three to four miles each day, they stormed the challenge already, with 13 year old Josh even adding some miles by dry-slope skiing!

Caroline got creative with her daily walks and walked routes in the shape of animals, shown on her mapping app. The mum-of-two and RSPCA inspector of 11 years said:

“It’s already been so much fun taking on the challenge in the first week - it’s hilarious going back and forth up and down roads trying to draw animal shapes. I’m clocking up the miles with my kids and my rescue dog, Rosie; having fun and raising money for the RSPCA. To anyone who hasn’t yet signed up, please do, it’s such a great way to have fun with the kids and do something amazing for animals.”

How to measure your 50 miles

Again, you can do this any way you like! You could use the distance tracker on your smartwatch or phone, a GPS sportswatch, fitness tracker or a pedometer app. Or keep it simple and log every session you do on our mile tracker (which you can download and print out above).

We don't need to see proof of your mileage, but it's a handy way to keep track - and to share your progress with your sponsors. If you use the fitness platform Strava, you can even link that to your fundraising page for live updates.

Don't forget to share your progress on social media, using the hashtag #50MilesForAnimals. You might inspire someone else to take part.
