East Anglian Air Ambulance is excited to announce that Only The Brave will be going virtual for the first time ever with The 6/10 Mission! For the whole month of May, take on a challenge based on the numbers 6 and/or 10 in honour of the traditional Only The Brave route distances.  You'll even receive a FREE Only The Brave t-shirt just for signing up! 

Sign up to Virtual Only The Brave: The 6/10 Mission in a few simple steps: 

1. Join our official Virtual Only The Brave Facebook group, tell us your t-shirt size via our request form and meet the other people taking part too. Click here to join the group!

If you don’t have Facebook – no problem! Request your t-shirt here and skip to step 2! 

2.  Create a JustGiving page and tell the world about your challenge! Click here to set up your page. By setting up a JustGiving page, the amount you raise will go towards the overall team total, raising vital funds to keep our helicopters flying. 

3. Choose your 6/10 challenge! Check out our suggestions below or create your own.  

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide participants with our usual obstacles for this virtual event. Hay bales don’t usually fit through standard letter boxes so we’re relying on you to push your own limits and create a challenge that’s personal to you. 

Choose your own challenge or take on some of our suggestions below! 

  • Run or walk a total distance of 60 miles in May 
  • Run or walk 6km or 10km every day in May 
  • Get a team of 6 friends and cycle 1000 miles as a virtual team 
  • Complete 6,000 or 10,000 steps every day in May 
  • Complete 60 or 100 laps of your local park throughout May 
  • Complete a distance of your choice on any date that is a multiple of 6 or 10 in May – (6th, 10th, 12th, 18th, 20th, 24th, 30th) 
  • Complete 60 or 100 squats every day in May 
  • Complete 60 or 100 hours of an activity in May 
  • Complete a challenge at 6am, 10am, 6pm and 10pm every day in May 

This virtual challenge will take place instead of our usual event in Elveden. Due to the ongoing pandemic, East Anglian Air Ambulance has made the difficult decision to postpone Only The Brave until 2022 to ensure all participants can experience the full, high-quality event without compromise. We’re sad to not bring the in-person event to you but we know you’ll do us proud with this challenge! 

Why 6/10? -We’ve chosen the theme of this challenge in honour of the traditional Only The Brave route distances.  

When: The whole month of May 

Where: Choose your own challenge or take on some of our suggestions. 

Tickets: FREE to sign up (see process above) 

Fundraising: We suggest a fundraising target of £50.

Why does the challenge have to be based on 6 or 10? 

Virtual Only The Brave - The 6/10 Mission was created after Only The Brave had to be postponed until 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic. At the usual in-person event, the route distances are either 6 miles or 10 miles and The 6/10 Mission was designed to reflect this. 

When will my t-shirt arrive? 

We’ll aim to post your t-shirt within 14 days of receiving your request form.  If you haven’t received your t-shirt within this time, please let us know my emailing info@eaaa.org.uk. 

Can I swap my t-shirt for another size? 

Unfortunately, we are unable to swap your t-shirt once it has been posted. Please choose carefully when selecting your size. 

How do I provide evidence of the activity I’ve completed? 

If you are completing a running, walking or cycling challenge, you can link your JustGiving page to a Strava account if you have one. If you are completing a squat, lunge or burpee challenge, you may wish to keep a log of your activity using a fitness app. 

How do I fundraise? 

We’re encouraging all participants to fundraising via JustGiving. This is because all donations will come straight to East Anglian Air Ambulance automatically – saving you a trip to the bank! JustGiving also allows you to connect your fundraising page to your Strava account, making it easy to update your supporters on your progress. 

What is the fundraising target? 

We’ve set every fundraising page a target of £50 but this target can be changed to reflect your personal goals. We’d love everyone to raise as much as they can for East Anglian Air Ambulance as your support is vital for keeping our helicopters and crews flying every day. 

Can I start my challenge early? 

Absolutely! If you're keen to get started and can’t wait until May, then you are very welcome to get started ahead of the event officially kicking off!
