After an incredibly successful test cycle from London to Brighton last year we have stepped things up a gear for 2012. I hear you all groaning…
We have teamed up with Action Challenge to launch two incredible London to Brighton challenges for World Hunger Day and luckily for me (as I doing both of them!) you don’t need to be a fitness fanatic to do either… a step by step training plan for both is provided when you sign up.
The London 2 Brighton 100km Challenge
…starts in Richmond Park on Saturday 12 May and you can Walk it. Jog it or Run it as part of our World Hunger Day 2012 Challenges.
For you ultra marathon types this is just the challenge you will relish; however I am definitely walking it! After a few relatively easy training walks over the weekend I am pretty confident in making it to Brighton in 18 hours or thereabouts! Keeping awake might be the hardest part.
Registrations are now open and we would love a few more to join us. Don’t worry if don’t have anyone to sign up with, if you want to walk with the core ‘Team Hunger’ team just email me email@example.com and I will guide you through the short registration process and happily invite you along on our training walks.
You can follow my training progress on twitter… @markspeirs1
Registrations close at the end of January so don’t delay! The full route (highly secret as yet!) will be released in February 2012.
All participants in the challenge are invited to celebrate their achievements at The Royal Albert Hall for our World Hunger Day Concert 28 May, 2012. Tickets go on sale 14 January, 2012. If you raise £1000 (excluding Gift Aid) by the end of April we will send you two complimentary tickets to join us.
Moonriders World Hunger Day Challenge
Give your 2012 fitness regime some focus by joining our Moonriders Night Cycle from Capital to Coast on one of the shortest nights of the year, 29 June, 2012.
Leaving Alexander Palace around midnight on Friday 29th June most of us will be relaxing on the beach by dawn for breakfast on the 30th! Much less training is required for this challenge but a full training schedule is available once you have registered and I will happily guide you through this.
We completed a test cycle from Capital to Coast last year so I have plenty of advice if you are unsure or need some reassurance – get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
“Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up…”
