Fundraising complete, #FESTIVE500 has reached 100% of the target!
Event date Thu 24th Dec - Thu 31st Dec 2020
500 kilometres. Eight days. The world’s favourite festive cycling challenge is back and this year it turns eleven.
Over the last decade, just under half a million participants have ridden over 100 million kilometres. If you are up for it in 2020, why not Join us this year and help us raise money for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy?
Started in 2010, the goal of Rapha’s Festive 500 is to keep us riding throughout the festive period and once again riders will need to record their endeavours on Strava to be in with a shout of winning Rapha’s prizes. However, for the first time, Rapha are not offering a ‘Roundel’ (sew on patch) this year but you could still obtain one by completing their challenge and raising a minimum of £500 with us.
The challenge is simple in theory but often tough in practice: ride your bike for a total of 500km between Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve and sync your rides to Strava.
Here at Harrison’s Fund, we are even offering you a bit more flexibility too. Whereas to complete Rapha’s challenge all rides must be outdoors, we will accept virtual rides if properly recorded on Strava. We would expect you to complete the majority of rides outdoors of course, but if there is deep snow, you can still complete our part of the challenge and qualify for our commemorative Roundel..
The exclusive roundel, free in return for fundraising, will be an essential addition to the collection for past participants and a wonderful and prestigious souvenir for first timers.
