Wiggle Challenge 2020

If you have fitness goals for 2020, then Wiggle’s Challengers are here to inspire you to success.

Wiggle has recruited four Challengers who’ll detail their stories over the coming year as they take on huge running, cycling, triathlon, and outdoor/adventure challenges in 2020.

You’ll have the chance to learn from their mistakes and successes as they overcome obstacles, build schedules, and find the perfect gear to help them achieve their goals.

Throughout 2020, our four intrepid Challengers will chart their journeys through blogs and videos.

And, by keeping up their progress and achievements, you’ll get the motivation you need to tackle your own goals and learn from their experiences as they face some iconic tests of endurance and fitness.
