If the current lockdown restrictions are getting you down (as well as the ups and downs of supporting Palace) – the team here at TEB have a suggestion; join the Palace Squad to take on 13 other football clubs in London and raise funds for the Palace for Life Foundation.
The Race Europe Virtual Challenge event will see 14 London football clubs race across Europe in a virtual activity challenge. Working in squads of 23, each Club aim to be the fastest to cover the 6,720 miles that separate all of the Euro 2021 host cities.
Starting in March, participants need to track their activity for the month to clock up virtual miles in order to get to the 6720 mile target. With 23 people in the squad, the miles should accumulate quicker than you think! Given the weather and the current restrictions, any excuse to get more active has got to be a good thing and if it is raising money for the Palace For Life Foundation, that is even better.
There are nearly 80 different activities (subject to Government guidelines) which clock up miles including running, swimming, cycling, football, and even gardening, food shopping and washing the car! Organisers of the event will be monitoring Government guidance on exercise and outdoor activities over the next few weeks and constantly reviewing and adapting the list of approved activities to make sure the challenge can be completed safely and in line with all legislation.
A live event portal will chart the progress of each club team and as each squad reaches a host city, information about that city and its footballing history will be unlocked.
All funds raised from the event will support Palace for Life Foundation’s work in the community, tackling some of the biggest challenges facing our community today including social isolation and health inequalities.
In order to join one of the Palace squads, there is a £10 entry fee and commitment to raising £100 in sponsorship (excluding Gift Aid). For more information on the event, how to join in and full details of the activities that will clock up miles please clink on THIS LINK.
