Although the event is not considered a charity event, we have teamed up with Marie Curie and Action Medical Research to encourage participants to fundraise as an extra motivator when tackling the tough hills on the day.

Every 5 minutes someone in the UK dies without the care they need at the end of their life. Marie Curie offers expert care and support to help people living with a terminal illness, to get the most from the time they have left.

Our nurses work night and day, in people’s homes across the UK, providing hands-on care. Our hospices offer specialist round-the-clock care. They’re there for them day or night, until the very end.

But we can’t deliver this much needed care without people like you. So, if you’d like to take part in this event to raise funds for Marie Curie please ‘opt in’ to join Team Marie Curie when entering the event.

There is no target, just have fun and raise as much as you like. Although if you raise £350 or more you will be rewarded with a Marie Curie Cycling Jersey, just let us know when you have reached this and we can send it out to you ready for event day.
