August Challenge Club

Congratulations to everyone who took part in the July challenges. ONE THOUSAND of you ran, walked and cycled your way to unfettered glory 🎉. From first-timers doing a 5k, to friends teaming up to take on 2500k, success was everywhere.

Introducing the August Challenges.

The Cause:⁠
This month the Club is supporting the National Literacy Trust. The lockdown has had a disproportionately negative impact on children from poorer backgrounds. The National Literacy Trust is working to support these children when they return to school this September after months of disrupted learning. ⁠

The Medal:⁠
August's medal is a belter. Finished in light powder grey and featuring a quote from children's author, Dr Seuss, to act as constant reminder to keep climbing those mountains.⁠

P.S. Following last week's announcements from the DCMS and National Governing Bodies, real mass-participation events will be making a very welcome return over the coming months. We'll be in touch next week with more information and a survey to gauge everyone's feelings towards participation.
