'Race Europe' will see 14 London football clubs race across Europe in a virtual activity challenge. Working in squads of 23, each club aims to be the fastest to cover the 6,720 miles which is the distance that separates the Euro 2021 host cities.

Story

Two teams of 23 Arsenal FC staff, led by former Arsenal captain, legend and current Academy manager Per Mertesacker will be working together to stay active and complete 6720 miles in March, the distance separating the host cities in the 2021 Euros. 

I will be aiming to run at least 200km in March, and to top that up with some walking, yoga and HIIT workouts! 

I've been part of The Arsenal Foundation's work for several years now, and will be forever grateful that my club supports both it's local and global communities with so much passion. Money raised through this challenge will help us to continue to support these causes in a time where it is so desperately needed. 

Arsenal has always understood the power it has to bring people together and make a difference in the community. 

Wherever we are in the world, Arsenal has the power to connect communities and make a positive impact on the lives of the young people that need us. Thank you for your support.
