THE KEEN2GO THREE NATIONS CHALLENGE
Run – Walk – Cycle – Workout from Home – Explore Britain
Help the Keen2Go team conquer the three nations of mainland Britain without leaving the borough!
Inspired by our brilliant members making the best use of their exercise time, we have created the Keen2Go Three Nations Challenge!
Join in and help the team as we walk, run and cycle our way to Edinburgh (the long way round – 617 whole miles). Earn digital postcards as you help us complete each stage of our journey and watch them turn into raffle tickets as we reach the end!
We will host Zoom sessions as we tick off each stop on our journey. We will learn some interesting facts about the places we visit and check in with the rest of the team.
We also need as much brilliant artwork as possible for our digital postcards. Let us know if you’d be interested in summoning the dragons of the valleys for our Cardiff postcard or invoking the spirit of the Beatles for the Liverpool edition.
You can either run, walk, cycle or find an even more enjoyable mode of human powered transport to get your miles in.
Travel as far as you like, as often as you like.
Use a running app or Google Maps to see the distance you've achieved on each trip and make sure to write it down on your Three Nations Challenge log (below).
Let us know the distances you’ve completed via text or email (at least weekly) and we’ll add them to the Keen2Go total on our website and share our progress through social media.
If you prefer to exercise at home that’s great. We’ve tried Joe Wicks and that definitely deserves some mileage! Award yourself one mile for every half an hour you complete and if you enjoy working out at home, check out Malookoo for some amazing Zumba.
Friends and family members are more than welcome to join in – we’ve made sure to include a space on the logs for you too!
Please make sure you are safe and following relevant guidance at all times. Don’t tell your parents you’re off to Edinburgh before suddenly leaving the house!
Have fun, encourage one another and be sure to share your experiences with us and others.
We’re starting at the Phoenix Centre in Roundshaw. First stop, let’s pay Her Majesty a belated birthday visit at Buckingham Palace.
The progress chart below will be updated as new distances are sent in.
