Welcome to the Chess Valley Six Nations Challenge.
To raise money for good causes whilst improving fitness and having fun we are putting down the challenge for everyone in the club, including parents, to collectively run, walk or cycle the distance between all the 6 Nations Matches each weekend.
So, in the week leading up to the first weekend (6/7 February), we need to cover a round trip to Rome, Twickenham, Cardiff and back to the Club . A total of 2,689 miles. It all starts on 31st January.
We want the whole club to contribute, in isolation, to help us reach the target distance each week, whilst raising funds to support Rickmansworth Foodbank and The Saracens Foundation.
We are suggesting a one-off donation of £5 / entry. As the competition hots up there will be more opportunities to donate to our good causes.
The challenge will start on Sunday mornings after Stu's Zoom call and anything you run, walk or ride will go towards the grand total. All you need to do is record (anyway you want to ) how many miles you have covered by Friday and let your head coach/ manager know who will tally them up and the results will be announced on Saturday. The Challenge for week 2 will be announced at the same time.
We envisage everyone will need to cover about 8-12 miles over the 6 days. Some will no doubt cover much more !
Some competition is likely to develop between the age groups and there will be prizes for the most ground covered and money raised.
Lets make the most of the 6 Nations we have this year. Improve our fitness, have some fun and raise money for good causes on the way.
The fun starts on Sunday.
