The RBS Cycle Challenge for the Prince’s Trust was a new adventure for our Function Jigsaw Events team, writes Jess Warrington.
It was also one of the busiest we have ever done with a constant stream of customers desperate for some massage therapy.
Our team of massage therapists got to the venue at 12.30pm to set up for 1pm and, as soon as the clock ticked around to that start time, we had our first six people already on the couch.
This was the case for the next six hours. We managed to see over 180 people in that short amount of time and the team did a fantastic job to get through that many people.
Their task was to complete all 500 miles for the Prince’s Trust
We were contacted by Threshold Sports a few months ago to get a team together for a corporate challenge of 250 avid cycle riders. Their task was to ride 100 miles a day for five days.
Their starting part was in the heart of London, riding through the countryside to a little village outside of Daventry, where they finally arrived at Crockwell Farm. The riders set off between 7am and 7.30am and started arriving at the first finish point from 12.30pm.
After seeing us, the team of cyclist then went on to spend four more days on their bikes travelling throughout the countryside of England and Scotland and ending their journey in Edinburgh.
All of the 250 participants taking the extreme challenge for the Prince’s Trust were to complete all 500 miles. There was also an additional 200 people per day taking on the challenge of riding 100 miles.
