What a way to begin our final column of the series. The Grand Canyon is 446km long and around 30km wide in some places. This is a true, natural wonder of the world. As with the other challenges in the series, you will get a choice of 30/100/200km to complete over the month (April, 2020). Give yourself a great target to hit, without being an April fool!
If you have visited the Grand Canyon national park, we are sure that you were amazed by the vast size of the geological formations. We have gone for an angle to show the Colorado river floring through the canyon with steep, jagged rock faces either side. Run/walk the 30/100/200km distance to get the trim in either bronze, silver or gold.
Our chosen charity for the WotW Challenge Series is 'When You Wish Upon A Star'. When You Wish Upon A Star grant magical wishes to children with life threatening illnesses. They make memories for a Wish child and their family to remember for a lifetime. By granting a Wish, this enables the family to have a truly amazing time forgetting about hospital routines, doctor's appointments and the gruelling treatments that have become a daily occurrence and allowing the whole family to smile, laugh and enjoy life!
Challenge Events are all about pushing yourself to complete the distance so everyone is a winner if they can reach their target. So, in addition to your event reward, we have three prize boxes for the most accumulated donations and three lucky draw prize boxes to be won by anyone who completes their chosen distance, each worth £25!
