Complete 26 miles by the 30th September 2020, when this challenge ends!

Many of you know Tanja, she's the lovely person listening to your stories and answering your questions. Tanja was planning on walking a mind boggling 100km in 24 hours for SameYou - unfortunately this was cancelled. So, we decided to support her and join her on a virtual trek across the Andes!

Emilia, Jenny and the rest of the SameYou team are going to walk, run and cycle 26 miles in a virtual challenge. We’re starting at the beginning of the Inca Trail and arriving at Machu Picchu.

You can support Emilia and the team by clicking here to donate.

Or why not join us? Sign up, create your own fundraising page, connect the fitness app Strava and track your progress directly onto your fundraising page. 

Don't forget to tag us on social media and use #SameYouIncaChallenge so we can follow your journey!

If you raise or donate £500, we will send you a limited edition Inca Challenge t-shirt.

Make sure to complete the 26 miles by 30th September 2020.

If you need any help or advice, contact angelamatheickal@sameyou.org, it's no prob-llama, or check our FAQ.

27 August 2020 Hills, hills and more hills! It's Tanja's turn

Did you know that Tanja was our inspiration for the challenge? Not quite 100km, which was her original distance but her and dog Dudley completed it with ease (despite the hills). 

28 August 2020 Derek is off - and he's taking along Rupert the Alpaca

No puppy? No problem.

Derek and Alpaca Rupert take us 3 miles closer to Machu Picchu. Well done Derek!

29 August 2020 Whoa, that was windy!

Today was Kate's turn to take on the challenge along with Megan the dog and her mum!  It was a rather windy day but they managed it despite having to manoeuvre around fallen trees - look out for the photo on social media!

30 August 2020 Clare and her family take on the Inca Challenge

2 September 2020 Angela reaches the base of Machu Picchu

It's is looking a little different these days!

It seems to have changed from Angela's trek two years ago - far less llamas!

3 September 2020 We've done it!

We've made it 26 miles all the way to Machu Picchu.

And some of us have found it such fun we're doing it again!

Now it's your turn to take on the challenge, and get moving!
