From rowing the English Channel to running through the Grand Canyon, now you can take on an epic international journey from the safety of your own home and at your own pace. Choose from dozens of adventures and run, walk or cycle (or any distance-based exercise) your way through the virtual fitness challenge, tracking your progress as you go. You can work as an individual or in a team with friends and family based anywhere in the world.

Sign up to The Conqueror and download their mobile app. You can connect it to any fitness apps or devices and log your distances as you steadily work towards your goal. You will receive postcards and updates along the way and it even uses street view technology to show you where you are in your challenge and the iconic sites along the way.

How can this endeavour help Brake? Simple – once you’ve signed up to your chosen Conqueror challenge, set up a fundraising page using JustGiving, Facebook or any other sponsorship platforms, and fill it with information about your Conqueror challenge. Ask friends and family to donate to Brake to support your efforts. Perhaps you’d like to complete a challenge in memory of someone killed in a road crash who loved the Australian Coastal Road, or always dreamed of doing the Inca Trail. You can even tailor your own journeys anywhere in the world.

Make it your own and raise much-needed funds to help us save more people from road death and serious injury. Keep us updated with your endeavours and share photos on social media @brakecharity to inspire others too.

Thank you for your support.
