Their first big challenge, is to complete a 361 Mile distance challenge throughout November, which represents the distance between the distribution centre here in Northampton to the Paris Olympic Opening ceremony. As official partners of the 2024 Olympic games, they thought that this would be fitting as a worthy challenge. People can individually or in a team complete this distance through cycling, walking, running, wheelchair, swimming, with prizes available.
