Here at UoGSU we support all of #teamglos and want to support everyone who wanted to do something that would help keep us all connected and active during our time apart in lockdown 2.We wanted to use this difficult time to also work to give something back to the community we live, stufy and work in and so we developed with the UoGSU RAG The Team Glos Trek to the North Pole!

The plan is simple - in the run up to Christmas during this lockdown we want all members of our clubs to track their daily walk or run using the Strava group below as we collectively run or walk together the 2668 miles to the North Pole from here in Gloucestershire.

There will be check-ins as we go to see which team is leading along the way...

John O’Groats at 611 miles
Iceland at 1082 miles
Greenland at 1834 miles
North Pole at 2668 miles

We're asking people to sponsor this action in aid of Gloucester City Mission, an incredible charity offering food, shelter, warmth and support to those who need it most in our local community. When we get to sit with our loved ones over the festive period, we will know we have done our bit for those in our local community who aren’t so lucky. You can donate here!
