Go The Distance with fitnaturally will cover a scenic loop of the south east of England, taking in the North and South Downs.

Date: June 1st 2013.

In 2013 the ride will be exclusively in aid of ROYAL MARSDEN CANCER CHARITY.
The registration fee is just £49 and the minimum fundraising target is £500.*

The route will allow riders to choose to cycle either 96 miles or 192 miles in one day.

Every Day in May

Every Day in May is an exciting running event which takes place over the whole of May and involves covering a set distance on foot every single day. Entrants have two distance options, 10k or 5k every day. The total distances run are 192.5 miles and 96.2 miles respectively, that’s approximately seven and a half or three and a half marathons in a month.

Sally Pinnegar of event organisers fitnaturally says:

“This is intended to be an achievable challenge, the distances are not difficult in themselves, the challenge is to run them every single day of the month. That takes mental toughness and skilled planning”

Runners can do the distance at whatever time of day and wherever they choose, this makes it a global event. People all over the world can take part but still work as a fundraising team through the 5k Every Day In May 2013 JustGiving Team Page for the event’s chosen charity The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

The event starts on Wednesday May 1 2013 at 12:01am and finishes on Friday May 31 at 11:59pm and has an entry fee of £15.
