The London to Brighton Challenge is a major fundraising event for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Your support will go a huge way to help people affected by cancer, for example:
When you join Team Macmillan you will be supported throughout your entire event experience.
In addition to our initial fundraising pack, we'll send you regular newsletters with tips to help you prepare for the big day. And if that isn't enough, we will be there for you on the day and offer well-deserved congratulations at the end of the event.
There's no denying it - this is a tough challenge by anyone's standards. It will be physically and emotionally demanding. You will have to combat fatigue and tiring limbs as you battle through the challenge.
You are responsible for your personal items on the event. An equipment and clothing list will be available to download from the participants area on the London 2 Brighton website. |
You will need a daypack (c30litres) to carry the recommended personal items throughout the event including wet weather gear, warm clothing, water, snacks, sun protection, personal first aid kit, and personal items.
You will be issued with a walker safety pack including maps.
There will be a baggage transfer service from the start in London to the finish line in Brighton for a single piece of baggage not exceeding 50litres/10kg. Participants who retire from the challenge will be responsible for claiming their baggage at the finish line.
You must be 17 years or over on the date of the event (25 May 2013) to enter the London to Brighton Challenge.
If you or one of your team mates withdraw on medical grounds you will receive a full refund of any registration fee paid (on supply of a medical certificate).
Team members can be substituted until 31 Mar 2012 on payment of an administration fee of £25. Beyond this time changes will be subject to a new registration (£75).
If your team size drops below three due to a cancellation your team will be required to walk as part of the individual entries with pace walkers for safety reasons.
If you are injured while training we recommend you contact your GP or a specialist sports injury clinic. They will be able to advise you if you are fit enough to take part. If you do need to withdraw you will need to notify the event organisers, Action Challenge, as soon as possible. Please also let Team Macmillan know that you will not be taking part.
If you get injured during the challenge, you will be supported by roaming medics and an experienced event crew who will be on-hand to help you out if needed.
