Which Beach Will You Reach?

Can Leicester-Shire and Rutland Workplace Challenge collectively walk, cycle and run to Bondi Beach (10,553 miles)?

The British summer is (fingers crossed) well and truly here and with the sun out and the skies blue, we all get that urge to go and dip our toes in the sea. Here in land-locked Leicestershire however, our nearest chance of visiting the ‘beach’ is Rutland Water.

Ditch the car and kick start your summer holiday by walking, running or cycling your way to the beach this summer. We challenge you to see how far you can travel from 3rd-23rd July. Which beach will you reach?

If you log any activity that is walking, running or cycling you will be automatically entered onto our leader board and be in with a chance of winning a spot prize. Spot prize winners will be announced on the 11th, 18th and 25th July.
