The EBB team want to finish this event as a team inside 24 hours! A team can only go as fast as its slowest person. All individuals owe it to their colleagues to be fit for the challenge. We will be holding a training day on Saturday 29 May at Queen Elizabeth Country Park. A 20 mile walk has been planned. This will give everyone a chance to walk in the footwear we plan to use on the Event.
We will be raising fund for The Alzheimer's Society which is the UK's leading care and research charity for people with dementia and those who care for them.
