“I signed up because I love a challenge and it was a fantastic charity. I found it incredibly hard, I’m not going to lie, but I’m delighted I did it!”

Choose your distance

Whether you’re a seasoned runner, a gentle jogger or a family looking for a fun activity… there’s something for you with The CRE8IN8 Challenge.


Perfect if you’re looking to start your fitness journey or if you’re looking for a fun activity to do with the children!

8 kilometres a day

Already a runner? Then maybe this is the challenge for you. Why not challenge your friends and work mates to enter with you and set up a team.


Can you do 168km in eight days?! This is one for those runners really looking to test themselves.

When you’ve decided on your distance, it’s time to change lives with Create by getting your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you.

OUr impact

Every penny you raise will help those who are feeling lonelier and more isolated than ever as a result of the pandemic.

“Create gives me a break and allows me to see the positives in my caring role and the positives in life.”

Abi, young carer and Create Youth Ambassador

Create runs engaging workshops in dance, music, drama and other art forms that support the mental health and wellbeing of young and adult carers, disabled children and adults, disadvantaged schoolchildren and other people facing particular challenges across the UK.

By taking part in The CRE8IN8 Challenge, you can give these children and adults the chance to meet other people, share their experiences, express themselves and feel inspired by creativity. They will make things together, build confidence and skills, and feel less alone.

Show them you care.
