Active for Sobell

So 2016 was a fantastic year for our active, sporty supporters, and we’re hoping that 2017 will be just as exciting.

Here are a few ideas of how you can get involved:



Whether you’re a Winter Walker, Moonlight Stroller, Weekend Rambler, or Three Peaks Challenger, we want to hear from you.
Form your own walking group, challenge yourself on a classic route/climb, or set yourself a target of steps for a year. The choice is yours, just let us be a part of it.



Human beings are designed to run, and whatever type of running appeals there is a race out there for you.
From 5k to a marathon we would love you to don the highly sought after Sobell running vest.
We’ll be on hand throughout with advice on fundraising and training to make sure that you have a fantastic race-day experience.


Ultra Disctance!Ultra-Distance

For some a marathon distance just isn’t enough, and whether you choose to run it or walk it there are a number of LONG distance events out there.
From the Race to the Stones, or the Race to the King, London to Brighton or the Thames Path Challenge. Walk it solo or as part of a group.



Aeroplanes are over-rated; why not throw yourself out of one?
Join us for a 10,000 feet tandem skydive in aid of Sobell House
Keep your eyes peeled for our Sobell skydive day later in the year



Cyclists in Paris!
Cycle London to Paris

Places are still available for the amazing London to Paris (tour de France edition) cycle ride in July 2017.
Spend three days supported cycling from Crystal Palace to the Arc de Triomphe before enjoying a rest day watching the Tour de France finish on the roads you’d ridden the day before.
An experience of a lifetime.



OverseasOverseas Challenge

For those looking for a true life changing experience, hike the Great Wall of China, trek through the Sahara, or climb Kilimanjaro.
If you want to see the world and help Sobell House contact us in the charity office.




Swim Oxford’s Classic Mile will return for 2017, and as the chosen charity for the event it would be wonderful to have a huge team take to the Thames for Sobell House.
Last year’s mile, from Donnington Bridge to Christchurch Meadow, was a fantastic experience (and the cake was good too) and we can’t wait to share it with you in 2017


Whichever event you choose please feel free to contact us on 01865 857012 or e-mail
