Our parent company, Forces Cars Direct are celebrating 20 years this year, and to help celebrate this milestone, are hosting a national challenge – The FCD 20 Mile Challenge.
It is a virtual challenge, where participants pledge to run, walk or cycle 20 miles between 1st June and 30th June 2021. You can do it on your own, or with friends and family, all in one go, or in stages. It’s totally up to you!
Not only will you get yourself moving, you will be helping to support SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity, as £5 from each entry goes straight to the military charity to help armed forces personnel and veterans in need.
Let us know you’ve joined and progress updates by using the hashtag #FCD20 on social media, and submit your mileage results to receive a special FCD 20 Mile Challenge medal! Link to submit your mileage will be available from the 1st June. In the meantime, download our free 20 mile challenge mile tracker here.

Zoe Critchley, Marketing Manager and the virtual event coordinator said:
“Our 20th anniversary celebrations may have been hampered by Covid restrictions, but in true British-style, we are determined to continue our solidarity and commitment to our military community. I have signed up am looking forward to getting my running trainers back on!”
Forces Cars Direct have been partnered with SSAFA since 2017, and in that time have raised over £20,000. This year alone, the company has set an ambitious target of a further £20,000 to raise in its annual fundraising efforts.
