Challenge: A Phase III Study Of The Impact Of A Physical Activity Program On Disease-Free Survival In Patients With High Risk Stage II Or Stage III Colon Cancer: A Randomised Controlled Trial CHALLENGE aims to determine whether a supervised physical activity (PA) programme in patients with high risk Stage II or Stage III colon cancer will improve 3- year disease-free survival (DFS) in comparison to standard care. The impact on patient-reported outcome measures (PROMS) and quality of life will also be assessed. There is compelling observational data that PA is associated with colon cancer incidence, recurrence, survival, and quality of life. The trial arms are: Intervention: A 36 month structured physical activity programme comprising supervised physical activity sessions and behaviour support sessions and provision of general health education materials (on diet and exercise). Standard Care: Provision of general health education materials on diet and exercise only.
