The Festive 500 Countdown
The countdown to the Festive 500km has begun. With only one day to go before the big push, we have been overwhelmed with the response so far. Thanks to everyone who's getting involved and, whilst some weather forecasts are making it an even greater challenge than we first anticipated, we’re looking forward to seeing how many of you can make it to that magic number.
Don’t forget there are several prizes up for grabs: First prize is a Deep Winter Training Bundle featuring Deep Winter Tights, Winter Jersey and Overshoes. Hope Technology have kindly given us a Vision Two light as a prize for second place and 500 competitors registered on www.Rapha.cc will each receive a woven Festive 500 badge. ‘Tis the season!
