Your journey starts as you stand at the South-Westernmost tip of the UK. There's a brisk wind blowing in off the sea and a faint spray of sea salt is in the air. In the distance you hear the whir of helicopter blades and you turn to see a bright red helicopter fly low and fast across the sky just a short distance away, you watch as it passes knowing that it's racing to rescue someone in difficulty.
We have created an exciting new event to help you maintain long term motivation to move and exercise, by taking on a virtual tour of the UK via every Air Ambulance airbase! For a small entry fee you will get support for an entire year, including weekly videos from a PT to help build strength alongside fitness, monthly treasure hunts making the miles more fun, and a fabulously friendly Facebook community.
Choose whether to run, cycle, swim, walk, row, cross train, count your steps, hop, skip, or jump; in fact any distance based exercise you want to use (or combination of any of them) to cover the 2268 miles for this eye opening tour, alone or as a team. You have 12 months to complete if you enter by 01/01/23; it's only 44 miles per week. You can have as many members in your team as you choose, even adding more members along the way! We will help with lots of ideas on grabbing extra miles with tiny adjustments to lifestyle, that really will form habits that are easy to keep.
Travelling around the UK visiting all the Airbases, you will discover some unbelievable stories of life saving missions and with just a little bit of imagination, you will feel like you've been on an amazing journey!
Choose to include a fabulous event vest or medal (or both) or just opt to take part only. All our team are volunteers, so that all proceeds go to Air Ambulances UK, who do an amazing job saving lives.
