Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and in line with government advice regarding social distancing, we have decided with postpone the 2020 Team Townend Challenge. Our new date is Saturday 3rd October 2020. The Team Townend Pushbike Challenge is a cycling event in memory of Christian and Niggy Townend. In 2010, Christian and Niggy went out for a ride like we all do. But this time, they didn’t come home. We organized the Team Townend Challenge in their memory, to bring friends, family and cyclists together to raise funds for our chosen charity, RoadPeace. Every pound of the £70,000 raised by the Team Townend Challenge and associated events to date has gone directly to RoadPeace. The courses take in some of the most scenic and spectacular parts of the Lake District, as well as some of its most challenging roads, including the Whinlatter, Honister and Newlands passes. 2020 is the 10 year anniversary of Christian and Niggy’s death, and the 10th Team Townend. So this year, we are aiming high and going big! In addition to our Classic 22-mile and our Challenging 40-mile routes we are introducing our new Dirty Double 66-mile route, which conquer the Whinlatter, Newlands and Honister passes from both sides. That is six passes with 7676ft of climbing. We've set a target to take our total fund raising to £100,000. We will have many events, activities and refreshments at the hall during the day in order to keep the younger members of the family entertained whilst the older ones take on one of our routes.
