Run, hike or fly... there's an HRCC challenge for everyone

22/8/17 About 1 minute
Did watching the London Marathon inspire you to join the runners on the start line next year? HRCC is now accepting applications for its Golden Bond places in the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon. Applications should be made as soon as possible as the charity will be allocating its places after the ballot results are announced in October.
The minimum fundraising target is £2,000 and in return for running for HRCC, you will receive ongoing support, a fundraising guide, training guides and a running vest to wear on the day.

If long-distance running doesn't appeal to you, don't worry as HRCC offers plenty of other challenge opportunities - everything from UK bike rides for the whole family to epic treks around the globe. Some of this year's planned events include a trek along the Brazilian coast, a Boston to New York City cycle and a Great Wall of China hike.

Last year, Hannah Gilbert took part in a Himalaya trek for HRCC and says: "I was nervous about the physical demands of the challenge, but found I was fitter than I first thought and enjoyed the walking a lot more than I expected. The experience was a million times better than I could have imagined, and the sense of achievement was unreal."

HRCC has also teamed up with UK Parachuting to offer supporters the chance to do a charity skydive. Based at Beccles Airfield in Norfolk, participants are able to take part in a tandem skydive from 13,000 feet in the air. Booking fee is £50 with a minimum fundraising target of £250.

For more information or to apply for any of HRCC's challenges or the Virgin Money London Marathon, please contact Rosie Jamieson on 01245 380 719 or email rosie.jamieson@helenrollason.org.uk.
