Event description

Description

Team Rubicon UK are currently deployed in response to Hurricane Irma, we need your help with fundraising to enable us to help the disaster hit communities on the worst days of their lives.

The Rome to Rubicon Relay challenge is a cycling challenge in aid of Team Rubicon on Saturday 7th October at Team Rubicon HQ, Chilmark.

Where did the idea come from?

In May 2018 Team Rubicon are completing a sponsored cycle challenge called Rome to Rubicon. This challenge starts in Rome and finishes by crossing the Rubicon River, which is a distance of approximately 250 miles.

We are challenging the local children and scouts to ride 250 miles in a day together, therefore collectively completing the Rome to Rubicon Challenge.

What’s involved in the challenge?

The event will be held at Team Rubicon UK Headquarters in Chilmark.

Depending on which school year you are in there is a different distance goal. There will be a 0.5 mile traffic free course which you will complete circuits of to reach your total distance.

Year 1,2,3 = 4 miles

Year 4,5,6= 6 miles

The timetable for the day is as below

09:30 – 10:00: Registration

10:00 – 12:00: Year 1, 2 & 3

12:00 – 13:00: Lunch (Please bring a picnic, there will be a selection of hot and cold drinks available for donations)

13:00 – 15:00: Years 4,5,6

15:30: Announcement of final distance achieved.

Fundraising

We are challenging each participant to raise £30 sponsorship money, this will greatly support the disaster hit carribbean community. If we have 40 participants and if everyone raises £30 we will raise £1200 which could pay for 12 volunteers to get fully trained in UK disaster response, enabling them to be able to respond to and assist disaster hit communities.
