The Hardest Day Challenge

18 August - 31 October 2021

Take on the #HardestDayChallenge to help commemorate all those involved in the Hardest Day during the Battle of Britain.

The Hardest Day was an air battle fought on 18 August 1940 during the Battle of Britain between the Luftwaffe and the RAF. It was one of the largest aerial engagements in history and both sides suffered heavy losses. To mark this significant air battle, why not take part in our Hardest Day Challenge? You have until 31 October to take part! 

How it works

Be courageous with a sponsored abseil or rock climb. Show your endurance with an ambitious run, walk or swim or show your determination by giving up caffeine, alcohol or chocolate.

Follow in the footsteps of The Few and take on your very own Hardest Day Challenge.

Our friends in the RAF are taking on a circuit session across all RAF stations. However you decide to take on your challenge, you will be helping the RAF Benevolent Fund to continue to support the RAF Family whenever they need us.

In return for your support you will receive:

  • a bespoke Hardest Day Challenge medal and RAF Benevolent Fund T-shirt
  • a fundraising toolkit
  • support from your local regional fundraiser to answer any questions about the challenge
