Run the world challenge
Between the 18th of May and the 5th of June 2020 MPCT Learners and Staff will take part in an Endurance Challenge.
MPCT understands how NHS staff and volunteers are doing amazing work right now in caring for COVID-19 patients. Together, we want to show our respect and gratitude as they work tirelessly in the face of the virus. It’s our turn to make sure we look after them, to ensure they can keep doing their vital work.
For this essential purpose staff and Learners at MPCT have set themselves the challenge as a team covering the distance of the circumference of the World.
MPCT recognises how Covid 19 is affecting our communities. The aim will be to collectively complete (or perhaps beat!) 24,860 miles (40,075kms) as a team within 19 days. This will be completed through running, walking, equivalent exercise, or even crawling if required!
Please support our staff and Learners in this gruelling challenge, and in turn supporting our epic NHS staff and volunteers.Donate
*Exercises and cycling will be recorded as a mile covering the following repetitions as detailed in the table below for learners with Injuries who cannot run or walk or as a recovery session throughout:
|Press Ups||1 mile = 100 repetitions||1 mile = 200 repetitions||1 mile = 300 repetitions|
|Sit Ups||1 mile = 100 repetitions||1 mile = 200 repetitions||1 mile = 300 repetitions|
|Squats||1 mile = 100 repetitions||1 mile = 200 repetitions||1 mile = 300 repetitions|
|Cycling||2 miles Cycling = 1 Mile Running||4 miles Cycling = 1 Mile Running||6 miles Cycling = 1 Mile Running|
That’s the same distance as London to Greenland!
The NHS is amazing. It is there for us at the most profound moments in our lives, no matter who we are or what we need. There are 250 NHS Charities in the UK providing funds and services above and beyond what the NHS alone can provide. Everyday NHS Charities give £1 million to the NHS.
