Join us this June for Arthritis Ireland’s inaugural virtual challenge and help raise much needed funds for those living with arthritis in Ireland. The 30 in 30 challenge is the perfect way to improve your health, all while supporting a great cause. Walk, run or cycle 30k in 30 days this June.  You can even choose to do 1k a day, break it into bigger chunks, or take on the full 30k in one go.


Whether you take part to honour yourself, a friend, or a family member, you will be making a huge difference. You can take part in your own time and anywhere across the country, near your home or in your local park. Our only ask is to make sure to do it safely and in line with the latest government advice.  


Due to the current COVID-19 health emergency, our fundraising has been significantly affected. This has had a major impact for us and has contributed to a severe drop in vital funds. However, despite this we are continuing to support the one million adults and 1200 children across the country, living with arthritis.


Choose YOUR challenge


What’s your 30 in 30? Will you walk, run or cycle? Will you take on the full 30k in one chunk, or choose to take on smaller bite sizes over the 30 days?

Challenge yourself, whatever that means to you. Know, that you will make a BIG difference to people living with arthritis.
