The Christmas Cracker of a Challenge - for adults.

Why wait for new year's resolutions? Embark on a virtual expedition across Lapland to raise money and help families unable to afford the essentials this Christmas. Take on the Lapland Step Challenge!

 The Trussell Trust is on the search for explorers to take on the virtual 20Km trek up Mount Korvatunturi, Lapland. We challenge you to walk 2km (1.2 miles) each day for 10 days during December. That's just 10-15 minutes each day!

Log your miles on your fundraising page each day and watch your progress across Lapland and up the mountain on our virtual map. Share your page with friends and family and raise funds to help support food banks this winter.


- Email at each checkpoint, including joke, festive riddle, Christmas fact and a Christmas Cheer Challenge.
- Fundraising page to personalise and share
- Watch your progress on the virtual Lapland map
- Grow Your Own Christmas Tree Kit on completion of the challenge (included with paid entry*)

Want to know the answer to your checkpoint riddle? Head out for your next 2km walk and you will receive the answer at your next checkpoint!

We are so grateful for your support. The soaring cost of living means more and more people are being left with no option but to use a food bank.

1.3m emergency food parcels were provided to people between April and September this year by food banks in the Trussell Trust network and almost half a million of these went to children. That’s a third more than were provided during the same period in 2021 and an increase of more than 50% compared to pre-pandemic levels.  

By taking part in the Lapland Step Challenge, you’ll be helping food banks keep going this winter and provide vital support to families that are at crisis point.

It's not always easy to find the time to step outside and get moving, but this festive season, head out outdoors with family, be active and raise money to help end the need for food banks in the UK.

* If you opt for the optional registration fee, we will send you a gift to open at the end of their challenge.

PLEASE NOTE: We're unable to forward funds onto individual food banks. All funds raised here go direct to the Trussell Trust.
