True, in support of Tommy’s, is hosting the inaugural True Cycling Challenge, with the aim to fundraise £200,000.
Taking place from the 3rd to 6th October 2018 in Mallorca, the True Cycling Challenge will give you and your senior team the opportunity to network with peers from across the retail industry at night, while attempting two cycling challenges by day.
About the Challenge
This event will be run by cycling events company pie. You can find a day by day breakdown of the event on their website.
The 100km Team Sportive
A self-guided 100km pre-defined flat route to the north of the island. Your team will have the opportunity to win a money-can’t-buy prize!.
The Climb Challenge
Riders will attempt Mallorca’s toughest, yet most beautiful, cycling routes, including Puig Major, Mallorca’s highest accessible mountain, and Cap de Formentor, the most northern point of the island. There are three routes to choose from:
- Working up a sweat: 80km, 1121m ascent
- Feel the burn: 130km, 1738m ascent
- Epic: 160km, 3156m ascent
In addition to this networking opportunity, your participation will help support Tommy’s, the UK’s leading baby charity, who fund research into preventing baby loss and provide trusted pregnancy advice. £200,000 could help towards funding the running of one of Tommy’s hugely important research and support centres for a year, changing clinical care and providing vital research, treatment and support for thousands of mums, dads and babies and helping to save more babies’ lives.
The number of teams entering will be limited.
An event fee of £10,000 will be asked from each competing team, of which at least £5,500 will go directly to Tommy's. Individuals will be also encouraged to do their own fundraising. Your team will be fully supported on both days and the Challenge will culminate in an awards evening in Mallorca on 5th October.
