After the success of last year's SOHK's Six Hour Touch Rugby Challenge - we're back with the challenge this summer!

From 1st May to 31st July 2024, we're asking you to take on the challenge of playing a six hour game of continuous touch rugby (with rolling subs!) to raise funds for SOHK's vital work. We're also aware of the challenges facing rugby clubs and smaller organisations, so will happily share 50% of donations back to you. 


What is it and why take part?
The SOHK Six Hour Touch Rugby Challenge is exactly that - a six hour sponsored game of continuous touch rugby.... with rolling subs of course! Touch and Tag rugby is booming in the UK! It's mixed gender, zero-contact, and anyone can play! No experience is needed and it’s heaps of fun - plus you’ll be supporting SOHK’s life-changing work with young people. You can find out more about our work here.

You'll also receive a digital pack containing all the information and support you’ll need and SOHK staff and volunteers will be on hand to offer planning advice.

Where & When?
All of these details are entirely up to you! You could use a park, your local rugby club or wherever is best for your team. All we ask is for participants to run their challenge between May 1st and July 31st 2024.

How will it work?
Touch Rugby is usually a six a side game so ideally you need a minimum of two teams of fifteen however in this challenge, it's totally up to you! Your only focus is to keep the game going! Lots of our participants are using this challenge as a way to introduce people to the sport, no matter of ability and bring their whole community together. 

How does the fundraising work? 
SOHK uses a platform called Enthuse for fundraising, and we’ll explain how to set up a page in the pack we send you. Your team’s profile can be shared on social media and given to each of your players to share amongst their friend and family. SOHK understands the challenges facing rugby clubs and smaller organisations so will happily share 50% of donations back to you.

We’re here to help!
Although the challenge is really simple and easy to organise, our team will check in throughout the process and be there should you need anything!
If you have any questions or concerns before you sign up just email our Events Co-ordinator [email protected], who will be able to help but if you're ready to roll just sign up here!

Last Year's Challenges!

An absolutely amazing challenge for an amazing cause! Really good fun, really good team spirit - everyone got involved and there were some absolute wonder tries! It brought the whole club together in such a lovely way.
