Team members from the Park Inn Peterborough gear up for mammoth charity cycle relay
Two team members from the Park Inn hotel in Peterborough are currently in training for a team charity cycle relay that will cover a total of 1300+ miles over 15 days, starting out in Aberdeen and finishing in Southend-on-Sea.
The team from the Park Inn Peterborough are joining forces with team members from 31 other Park Inn by Radisson and Radisson Blu hotels across the UK to take on the tough physical challenge in the hope of raising a total of over £30,000 for worthy causes along the way.
The 15-day relay will arrive in Peterborough on the afternoon of the 17th May and depart early on the 18th May with the dedicated team members from the Park Inn Peterborough accompanying the baton from Bedford via Peterborough, all the way to Harlow, cycling over 104 miles over 2 consecutive days in the process.
Ray Keogh, General Manager of the Park Inn by Radisson Peterborough says “We are proud to be a part of this event, we’ve recently started training and although it’s tough and we have a long way to go, we are really looking forward to the challenge and hope to raise some vital funds for our chosen charity – The Free Kicks Foundation.
As part of the training, the team are cycling 4 times a week and covering a total of 60 miles. In the coming weeks, this will be further stepped up to ensure all team members are at peak fitness for the challenge which will no doubt test endurance levels to the maximum.
Throughout the charity cycle relay, the team are being supported by a number of local and national sponsors, including master sponsor Bibendum, along with: ALD, Adavid, Birtwistles, Bluebell, Coca Cola, Hobart, Matthew Clarke, MRP, Perry Scott Nash, Positive Safety Training, Reynolds and Tudor.
“We have been touched by the number of people offering support and willing to get behind us for the cause” Ray adds. Anybody wishing to get behind the team can do so by contacting the hotel on 01733 353750 or visiting the team’s dedicated fundraising site www.justgiving.com/PIpeterborough
