Here at Powerfit, we like to challenge you in various forms. For the month of April/May combined we set you The Captain Tom 100k Running Challenge, where we did either 100k running individually or in teams of 4. We had 21 days to complete this and had fun along the way. Iâ€™ve had clients never run before, clients find their love for running again and lasting friendships forged.
The team spirit, motivation and encouragement has been immense. It has been a total joy to put together and made even more special by a certain individual Charlie Slinger. Charlie had never participated in a Powerfit challenge until now and boy was this the perfect challenge for him. Heâ€™d recently found his love for running and exercise so this helped to motivate him through lockdown especially. At Powerfit we like to do as much for charity as possible and have contributed to many charities over the years. This was no different. A just giving was set up and in 21 days we (the powerfit team) raised over Â£1000 pounds for the Royal British Legion.
Proud is an understatement, we had initially set our sights on Â£300 but to achieve over Â£1000 made it all the more special. Massive congratulations to everyone who entered, all your donations, the respect for a worthwhile charity and obviously Captain Tom himself.
