WHAT: This New Year’s Eve, we are hosting our most ambitious community challenge ever. It’s so ambitious we have no idea if it’s possible and there is a strong possibility we could fail, but if we don’t try we’ll never know.
Here goes: The circumference of the earth is 24,901 miles and we want to run around it with you, our community, in one day*.
HOW: If we can get 1,000 of you to enter then we will all have to run/walk on average 24.9 miles each – almost a marathon. If we can get 2,000 of you then the average distance per runner becomes a much more manageable 12.45 miles. You get the gist.
WHEN: *The challenge begins when the first place on earth starts New Year’s Eve (Samoa) and ends when the last place on earth hits the New Year (Baker Islands in the Pacific). In GMT, this is 10:00 on Wednesday 30th December until 12:00 on Friday 1st January. We have 50 hours to cover 24,901 miles!
WHY: Kevin Webber is a great friend of ours. Last October, he took on and smashed Ultra X Jordan. He is a wonderful man and a constant beacon of light. He is also a terminal prostate cancer patient. December 21st is Kevin’s 365th consecutive day running which started with the Ultra X #holiday100 challenge last year. The run with Kev challenge gives everyone the opportunity to end one year and start another with a new goal that will take you on an amazing journey.
The challenge costs just £5 and all of the proceeds will go to the charity Prostate Cancer UK. If you’re keen to join us then we will need every ounce of your support to make this dream a reality
