After a 2-year hiatus, the UK’s largest event of its kind saw participants start in London to take on the challenging 100 miles riding towards Braintree before returning to the capital, finishing at Tower Bridge.
Having taken on the challenge in aid of Panathlon Challenge Foundation, the team has managed to raise £12,200 so far, supporting the Foundation’s all-important work of providing opportunity to young people with disabilities and special educational needs across the UK to express themselves, connect, learn, and feel empowered through competitive sporting events.

Having spent between 5h15 and 8h18 on the road, the team managed to successfully complete the course, celebrated by hundreds of incredible supporters along the road and welcomed by fellow Woodlanders and the Panathlon team upon their return into London.
"The Panathlon charity relies upon the generosity of various partners to fund its activities for children with disabilities across the country. Woodland Group are our longest-term partners and the Woodlanders together with IFL have once again gone to extraordinary lengths to support our work - as 17 of them completed this 100-mile challenge. After two years of no events, it is fantastic to have this opportunity again to offer people a direct way of supporting us. A huge thanks to Woodland Group and IFL whose teams have physically pushed their own boundaries, while fundraising a huge amount of money. This will make a huge difference to hundreds of children with disabilities and special needs and will provide them with many sporting opportunities in the year ahead. Thank you for all your support!", Ashley Iceton, CEO of Panathlon, commented.
