Charity Campaigns

Outrun An Ambulance

Fancy keeping fit and raising money for the The East of England Ambulance Service Charity at the same time? Then this is the challenge for you. 

We're inviting people to participate in the 2023 Outrun an Ambulance campaign. It's is a virtual challenge to 'outrun' the mileage covered by an east of England ambulance on an average shift responding to emergencies.

You choose the activity and time-frame to suit you or your team. You just need to beat the distance by 1 mile! It's a great opportunity to boost your own health and wellbeing, whilst also raising funds to support the staff, volunteers and local communities of EEAST.

The challenge is designed to suit all people and all abilities. Fundraisers can choose their timeframe, up to a maximum of three months to ‘outrun’ the distance by at least one mile, either individually or as part of a team. If you do not want to run, you can walk, swim, scoot, hand-cycle, or ride anything that is self-propelled!
