Ragnar Relay Round 2
Call us mad, but we’re gearing up for our second Ragnar Relay!
That’s right… We’ve once again signed up for the inaugural Ragnar White Cliffs Relay on the 22nd& 23rd September 2018 – a 170 mile nonstop running relay starting in Sittingbourne, travelling through Faversham and finishing in Brighton 24 hours later.
Raising money for local charityÂ Pilgrims Hospices,Â we have a team ofÂ ten runners who are taking it in turns to run the entire distance, supported by two vehicles. Legs range between three & eight miles, and some runners will be running a total distance of over 21 miles in the 24 hour period.
For those of you who don’t know Pilgrims,Â it is a fantastic charity who provide specialist hospice care to patients & their families in East Kent, and one which is close to the hearts of many of our staff.Â Our aim is to raise Â£1000 to support the great work that Pilgrims Hospices deliver and we would be hugely grateful for anything you can donate, however big or small. You can sponsor us by clicking here or by popping in-store and popping your pennies in one of our buckets!
This year, we are also the location of Ragnarâ€™s â€˜Exchange Twoâ€™, where runners starting the race in Sittingbourne are handing over their batons to the runners completing leg two. We will have the Deck open from 8.30am on Saturday 22nd selling food & drink if you would like to come along and support us… or any of the other 125+ teams taking part!
We want to say a HUGE thanks to those of you who are supporting us already. Firstly, the biggest thank you goes to Practical Car & Van Rental in Sittingbourne, who are kindly supplying us with the vans to ferry us between exchanges – we couldn’t do it without you. Thank you also to Kent Crisps, Boutilliers Brew and Hercules Wine Warehouse, who are all contributing supplies to keep us going through our fundraising quiz night – we really appreciate it!
