For all challenges there is a gold, silver and bronze level, completing the whole journey to Tokyo or forming part of the whole group challenge and completing an individual stage - so why not test yourself and go for gold in 2020!
Individuals can sign up for the Running, Cycling, Swimming, Walking, Junior Sport or Ultimate Sports Challenges to take part in a virtual journey to Tokyo.
Teams can sign up for the Trip to Tokyo challenge to complete the actual distance between Cynthia Spencer Hospice and Tokyo by running, swimming, cycling or walking as a combined entity.
Once you have entered, you can log your activity online and keep a record of your individual and team achievements.
The 13 stages of the Trip to Tokyo starts at Cynthia Spencer Hospice and stops at a numbers of previous Olympic host cities including London, Berlin and Beijing and finishes at the 2020 host city of Tokyo.
A detailed guide of the stages, including interesting facts, can be found in the document section of this webpage.
This challenge is aimed at improving health and wellbeing, while helping the hospice. Our Wellbeing Centre aims to help people with a life limiting illness live their life as fully as possible by maintaining their physical function and independence for as long as possible. The benefits of attending our Wellbeing Centre mirror the benefits which we believe will be achieved by taking part in Trip to Tokyo:-
By taking part in this challenge you will make a real difference to your health and wellbeing and the health and wellbeing of our patients and their families ... now and in the future.
Tier 1 Training and Rehabilitation Systems are kindly supporting Trip to Tokyo by creating weekly videos to encourage participants with advice on training and preparation for the challenge. They will be posting these videos into our facebook event so why not 'like' our event page and you'll see regular videos from the guys in your newsfeed.
