The Joe Wicks 24 Hour PE Challenge

2020 has been a challenging year for us all, so what better way to end it than by raising money for BBC Children in Need, a charity very close to my heart. 

Joe Wicks

Get ready for Joe Wicks, the nation’s favourite virtual PE teacher, to attempt to work out for an incredible 24 hours for Radio 2’s BBC Children in Need Challenge 2020!

The Joe Wicks 24 Hour PE Challenge will start at 9.25am on Thursday 12th November and finish a day later at 9.25am on Friday 13th November.

The Body Coach will be doing a range of activities from cycling to yoga, boxing to rowing … and of course his signature HIIT workouts. He’ll also be joined via Zoom by a host of celebrity guests – including Radio 2 presenters – throughout the 24 hours to give him loads of encouragement in his challenge to help raise funds for BBC Children in Need.

You can watch his efforts live on the Red Button and BBC iPlayer across the 24 hours. The final moments of Joe’s challenge on the morning of the BBC Children in Need Appeal day, from 9.05-9.25am, will stream live on YouTube with schools up and down the country joining it to cheer him on. You will also be able to send messages of support for Joe, donate to support Joe via text and online.

Listen to Joe announcing his challenge on Radio 2 below and check back soon for more details of how you can get involved.
