As a club we aimed to run 4,194.8 kms within 31 days and to raise as much money as possible to be shared between the James Paget Hospital and the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital.

Why 4,194.8 kms?

This is the return distance between Norton Subcourse (where our ground is) and Vilnius (the capital of Lithuania). As a club we aim to go on tour annually and Vilnius happens to be the furthest we've travelled to.

We ran the equivalent of going from our home ground (The Highfield) to Rotterdam and then onto the German Boarder from where we then travelled to Hanover and then we went over the Polish Border to Warsaw where we ran towards the Lithuanian border and onto Vilnius and back again!

All runs were logged on our Norton Charity Strava group and we provided daily updates so everyone could see our target!

We started running on Monday 20th July and aimed to conclude our slog on the 19th August 2020 (31 days to complete).

Just 20 runners took part to complete this mammoth challenge and on average the group had to complete at least 135 km per day to complete the task in hand!
