Linskill's Active Summer Challenge

Linskill's Active Summer Challenge 2021

Published on 22 June 2021 07:29 PM

Community Development at Battle Hill & Linskill will soon be starting their Linskill's Active Summer Challenge 2021.

What's it all about?

In a nutshell… the aim is to walk/run or cycle as a group the number of miles it takes the Orient Express to travel! 

For three weeks, starting 1st July, participants pick a personal challenge (e.g. walk 5 miles) and then as many mini challenges as they fancy.

It’s all FREE and there is a prize draw each week, alongside a fun email with photos of how everyone is doing, plus tips and tricks for keeping active etc. 

This year they also have a programme of activities running alongside the challenge, where people can try Nordic walking, join a bike ride, learn how to mend a puncture etc – they’re even showing Murder on the Orient Express in the Film Club.

Here is the link which has all the details about the challenge, including the table of mini challenges to choose from, plus the programme of extra activities – all the sign-up links to register are included here too.

If people just fancy looking at the activities rather than doing the challenge that’s great too –  here is the link to see it all online.

You don't need to be an internet wiz to join in, you can just contact the organisers at:
