Globally, on average, 1 man dies by suicide every minute of every day. To bring awareness to this figure we are challenging you to run 10 meters every minute, on the minute.

Inspired by British Military selection, this workout is to be performed the week of Remembrance Sunday to honour the members of the armed forces who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Tackle each exercise one after each other in the order above in as quick as time as possible. If you want to up the ante, you can choose to add a load to the workout.

To highlight the 1,432 testicular cancer diagnoses each week across the world, we are challenging you to accumulate the distance of 1,432m across the week. Sound easy? Well, here's the twist.

During this month of awareness, we're encouraging everyone to help and support each other, and you can earn some awesome bonus points along the way. How, you ask? By getting a friend, family member, or even a stranger to join you in your activities. And to top it all off, we want to see your fun and energetic selfies as evidence! Let's make this challenge extra special together!

We recommend that you complete each challenge within 7-days from the date of issue. However, we understand that life can often get in the way, so that’s why accept submissions up until 7-days after the end of the series.

What is someone cheats?

We do our very best to weed out any cheating by asking people to evidence their challenge attempts. However, due to the nature of this being an online challenge series, it’s not 100% fool proof.We have to take everyone’s submissions at face-value. If we can confidently identify people either cheating or doing the challenge incorrectly, we will notify the competitor privately via email.At the end of the day, the leaderboard is just a bit of competitive fun. These challenges are personal tests of resilience. If people decide to cheat, they’re only cheating themselves. If you concentrate on yourself and give your best honest performance then you can hold your head high at the end of the day.
