Active Together Main Events
The stadiums might be empty, but don't let cancelled major events ruin your summer of sport. Between June and September, we're bringing you a series of events and challenges to keep you entertained.
We believe now is more important than ever to stay active and welcome you to join our active community across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Our Active Together Main Events series will bring variety, engagement and - in some cases - friendly competition.
There is a challenge for everyone, and you can take part in one or all of the challenges. Don't worry, you don't have to be a big sports fan either, any activity counts, but the more the better!
Further information on each of the challenges can be found below. We invite you to take part and hope you can spread the message amongst your family, friends, teammates and co-workers so we can all stay Active Together.
If you're sharing your activity through social media please tag us in your post and use the hashtags #ActiveTogether and #LRSMainEvent.
Coming soon: Travel to Tokyo (24th July – 09th August 2020)
We know the Olympics will be back in the future, but in the meantime we want to collectively 'Travel to Tokyo' in honour of our Team GB athletes who won't get that chance in 2020. Sign up to the challenge and use our tracker to record distances you've covered walking, jogging or cycling. As a community, let's see if we can cover the 5,894 miles to get our athletes there.
Registration links will be provided below from Monday 20th July.
Coming soon: Make New Moves (14th August - 28th August 2020)
The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games would have seen 537 events across 22 different sports. Despite postponement of the games, we want to encourage everyone to try something new. Take part in this challenge by completing different activities each time you do any exercise. Use our tracker to log what you've done and see how many unique activities you can complete over two weeks.
Registration links will be provided below from Monday 10th August.
Coming soon: Tour De Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland! (04th September – 18th September 2020)

Lets all log our activity and see just how far we can get – we'll use the Tour distance of 2,200 miles as a marker.
