Crazy Challenge update
Here we are at the start of March and the team are really making progress! Just passed the 400K mark and heading for half way in the next day or so. Much cycling is being done but unfortunately one member of the team has injured their foot slightly, so is unable to run – just walk at the moment. (prayers needed)
Members of the team have been climbing up and down hills, wandering down dales, exploring crags first thing in the morning, and enjoying an evening stroll along the promenade. It all mounts up!
Beautiful weather continued to allow for walks, cycles and runs to take place outside – you can see just some of the stunning scenery...
One of the team completed a 5K cycle, followed by a 4K walk and more bike riding later in the day, contributing to the 54.7KM team effort on that particular day.
At 5 days along the team had jotted down a total virtual distance of a whopping 172.3Km / 107 miles!!!
21st February had seen, among other activities, a 1.5Km walk with the dogs, 9.5km on the bike followed by another 2.5ki and 16km bike ride by another member of the team. More running for 6K and another 12K meant that the are making amazing progress towards their target of 970KM collectively.
By 19th February the team had made a cracking start with just some of the activities being 2.5KM dog walks along the Conwy Estuary, 10KM on the exercise bikes, 6K runs and 12K bike rides in the rain all contributing to the total distance.
£305 raised so far!!!
Pauline of Rhos Church explains: 'As with so many churches, we have had to close once more during lockdown to keep our members safe. Unfortunately there is little money coming in to keep the church running but the bills don't stop just because the church is closed. Our minister, Rev Park came up with the crazy idea of running, cycling or walking the length of Britain from Land's End to John O'Groats or vice versa – we haven't decided yet! (Virtually of course!)
The total distance is 970 km as the crow flies. There will be 3 of us sharing this challenge of each completing an average of 10 km daily throughout Lent, starting on 17th February – Janet, myself and John, my running buddy. We are not athletes at all but determined to have a go in the hope that it will provide a point of interest for our members and friends during the dark days of winter and raise enough money to pay the bills until we can all be together again safely. And you never know – we may get fit in the process!'
