It's 'Blue Monday' today, so cheer yourself up and act on that New Year's resolution...

Don't let the Olympic hangover get you down – 2013 can be the year that you get more active, feel good about yourself and change lives!

We have a number of challenges to inspire you to reach for the trainers and get out into the great outdoors while also helping some of the world's poorest communities.

Here's one event to get you inspired:

WaterAid200 Mountain Challenge

Calling all walkers and climbers! Sign-up today to conquer your favourite UK mountain and raise vital funds to provide access to clean water and sanitation to rural communities in Nepal.

Join 2,000 other climbers taking part in the 2013 WaterAid200 challenge on 8 June and take on your favorite mountain to raise money for WaterAid.

The challenge aims to put a team on top of each of the 200 mountains in the UK and Ireland as chosen by WaterAid supporters, while raising over £200,000 to help fund work to improve access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene in Nepal, one of the most mountainous regions of the world.

You don't need to be a mountaineer or experienced climber to take part - with climbs that range from gentle slopes to steep scrambles and take in some of the best views (and pubs!) across the UK and Ireland, there really is a peak for everyone! 

If climbing a mountain isn't your cup of tea then have a look at our other events, ranging from running a marathon or taking part in a cycle ride. Happy New You!
