Featured event: Challenge90

We’ve teamed up with Leeds United to launch Challenge90. Together, we’re asking fans to do 90 minutes of exercise every week, just the length of a football match.

Do more of what you love – team sports, running, cycling, swimming, walking – your 90 minutes can improve your health and fitness and reduce your risk of developing cancer.
