LEJOG Challenge

LEJOG Challenge

Throughout June 2020 the 3WhiteHats team set themselves a group task to complete the South West Coast Path by either walking, running, cycling and paddleboarding the full 627 miles. We smashed this with 1 day left to spare!

The team decided that this was actually a warm up task for an even bigger challenge - to complete Land's End to John o' Groats.

Lands End to John o' Groats is the traversal of the whole length of the island of Great Britain between two extremities, in the southwest and northeast. The traditional distance by road is 874 miles but we are going to round that up to 1,000 miles by taking a few detours.

As this is quite a big challenge, we have joined up with Community Heart (Falmouth) to help raise money to open a community Fundraising Shop and Hub; with a Community Fridge and to set up and sustain the Falmouth Community Orchard. They have been doing some incredible work during the Covid-19 pandemic by supplying emergency food boxes to the most vulnerable people in our community and as businesses have started reopening they have turned their focus back on to their original project.

Our target fund raising amount is £1,000 - £1 for every mile!

Progress so far

We created a few charts to track our virtual progress across the country - we are hoping this will encourage us to keep up with our target mileage each day.

Below you can see where we have already been and the major towns and cities that make up our 1,000 mile route.
