Race Highlights

PRESTON: WE'VE MADE IT!! After 163 days of exceptional, man-powered, forward motion, we are thrilled to tell you that together we have arrived triumphantly on home turf in half the time!

We've checked in at our charity's Preston HQ, The Pumping Marvellous – our final and favourite race destination, with every step a historic victory for heart failure awareness! While historic Preston harbours fun facts most towns can only dream of (longest line of red telephone boxes, first KFC, and the home of Butch Cassidy's Lancashire accent), we'd prefer to focus on our home-grown, patient-led, heart failure charity, of national relevance. With a whopping 96,749 miles (193,498,000 steps) already under your belts, it's the perfect time to tally your targets, and rally your team's potential fundraisers!

 

Why Supporters Took Part?

Heart failure impacts up to 1,000,000 people in the UK, over 6 million in the US, 15 million in Europe, and approximately 64 million globally.

It is an endemic event of significant proportion across our societies. Yet, most people don't know about it or haven't heard of it. You will be taking part in an event of epic proportion, the largest collection of people who have ever got together to collectively raise heart failure awareness and to be champions for the patient community and their families.
