Rastrick Pole-to-Pole New Challenge for a New Year!
Following the success of the Rastrick Around the World Challenge, we are delighted to announce that we have an exciting new challenge planned for the new year! Once again we will be asking the residents of Rastrick to move their way around the globe in the Rastrick Pole-to-Pole Challenge!
All details can be found on the link below.
The Pole-to-Pole Challenge is shaping up to be our most ambitious challenge yet and will involve two teams competing against each other in a race to be crowned Pole-to-Pole champions!
Beginning on the 3rd of January 2023, one team will set off (virtually) from the North pole and aim to reach the South pole, while the other will set off from the South, heading North.
Anyone is welcome to join at any stage of the challenge!
Did you know? You can record your progress with The Space @ Field Lane!
Each week, the distance travelled will be updated, with a visual provided to see who is on course to reach the opposite pole first. It’s envisaged it could take anywhere between 6-12 weeks for both teams to reach their poles and complete the challenge.
To find out more, including how to join and several helpful links to improve your fitness, no matter your level, visit the Rastrick Pole-to-Pole challenge page!
