What is the Prima Solutions TwentyTwenty Challenge?

28th September 2019 @ Rutland Water, Oakham

It is the ultimate corporate event! It's about getting together with friends and colleagues, accepting an incredible challenge, using team-work to get through it together & doing it all for a fantastic cause!

NEW THIS YEAR!  Choice of 1/2 marathon distance or full marathon distance!

As a team of 2 to 4 people, you will each cover a full or half marathon distance at the beautiful Rutland Water. For the full marathon you will cycle 30km, walk or run 10km & canoe 2km (everyone's favourite part!) whilst half marathon participants will cycle 10km, walk or run 10km and canoe 1km. There will also be 3-4 fun team activities along the routes.

Together, you'll set a pace that's right - some will be sprinting the whole event, others will spend time enjoying the scenery - but whatever speed you complete it at, it's guaranteed to be an adrenaline packed & satisfying day out for the whole office.

How much does it cost?

There is a £5-£10 registration fee per person (£5 for half and £10 for full distance), which secures your place in the event. This can either be paid at registration on the website, via bank transfer to TwentyTwenty. If you would like to pay this as a team total or if your company is paying for you (woohoo!), just get in touch & we can help you with any queries. 

There is a recommended fundraising target of £150 per person

Why is there a registration fee?

Whilst the registration fee is nominal, this is to ensure that teams signed up to the event are fully committed.

It also gives your fundraising pages a start, which is proven to increase the amount of donations received on online fundraising pages.

We hope that by having a registration fee, the company or organisation you represent will have greater interest & involvement in the event as a crucial team-building activity during 2019.  

Where will the money be going?

We're glad that you asked! 

Prima Solutions are completely funding this event for the third year running, and so every penny that you raise (including your registration fee) will be going towards TwentyTwenty's work with disadvantaged young people across the East Midlands. You can read more about our life changing work here

What's included with your registration?

  • Hire of equipment: bicycles, helmets & canoes 
  • Technical T-shirt 
  • Finishers medal 
  • Water & light refreshments throughout the day 
  • Evening meal and casual networking (on-site at Rutland Water) 
  • Digital download of event photographs by Chris Meads

How fit do I need to be?

You don't need to be a triathlete to take part. Due to the generous time allowance, the event is suitable for various fitness levels and you can complete it at a pace that's right for you. Also, the elevation of the walk and cycle route will be less hilly than the events' predecessor at Carsington Water... sigh of relief from previous participants who remember those epic inclines! 

You will need to be familiar with riding a bicycle and some practice of running or walking for several miles at a time will be extremely helpful on the day! Plan a training day with your team as an opportunity to test out your kit and fitness levels - it'll also be a great time to get in the spirit of the challenge & aid your fundraising!
