The average pilgrim will walk 72km during their Hajj. This multiplied by the approximate 2.5million people that attend Hajj, is a cumulative 180million kilometers walked over the days of Hajj.
What is the challenge?
With Hajj looking different to every other year due to COVID-19, the crowds of pilgrims we are so used to seeing walking between the rites of Hajj, will be significantly smaller.
To keep this spirit of Hajj alive, Islamic Relief volunteers and challengers from across the globe will be walking, jogging, cycling or running this distance over the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah and we want YOU to join in!
Plan your 10 days, grab your running shoes, your hiking boots or even your bicycle and set off on your Hajj inspired journey this year!
How to take part:
- Decide what your 72km activity will be
- Set up your fundraising page
- Share your plans on social media and tag @IslamicReliefUK
Once you’ve signed up, keep us updated on how you get on via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@IslamicReliefUK and @IRChallenges)
- Complete your challenge on over the first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah and save lives!
