A charity is encouraging people to challenge themselves physically as they get into the Olympic spirit.

Action on Hearing Loss’ 2012 KM Challenge is running in partnership with the British Olympic Association and Gold Challenge, and takes place in the build up to London 2012.

Participants are encouraged to cover 2012km, 201.2km or 20.12km through running, walking, cycling, or by any means of an Olympic sport.

Alaric Shorter from the charity’s fundraising team, said: “Get into the Olympic spirit and help support the millions of people in the UK with a hearing loss whilst embarking on a memorable challenge that will stay with you as a unique reminder of London 2012.

“You can cover the distance by taking part in Olympic disciplines such as cycling, horse riding or even windsurfing.

“Take part with your friends to make it an even more memorable achievement.”
