Would you like to be part of the fastest charity fully supported end to end, LEJOG?

This year we have limited spaces for you to be part of this ultimate challenge. Now in its 11th year, raising vital funds for the BSTrust, we set the stakes high, riding the race in only 6 days.

In 2003 Ciaran Doran created The Race Against Time – an endurance cycle ride from Lands End in the south west of England to John O’Groats in the north east of Scotland covering the 874 miles in just 5 days. The name of the ride is inspired by another race against time – the race to lower the rate at which new HIV infections occur in South Africa, and to help people already living with HIV–AIDS and their families.

Ciaran raised over £14,000 for HIV–AIDS work by successfully completing the race in just over 50 hours – leaving Lands End at 6.30am on the 14th June and arriving in John O’Groats on the 18th June at 10.03pm.

The money Ciaran raised went directly to projects supported by the Bishop Simeon Trust. The Trust works to alleviate the impact of HIV–AIDS on the poorest people in South Africa by funding education and care projects with local initiatives.

The ride has been repeated every year since 2005, with teams of around 10 cyclists, and is now an established event in our calendar. To date over £150,000 has been raised for the Bishop Simeon Trust through The Race Against Time.

– fully supported race, accommodation, food, training rides, training schedules are all provided – you just do the cycling
So why not join us this summer; 23-28th June 2013 for the ultimate LEJOG. As a small charity, we know exactly where the money you raise goes and can provide you with up to date feedback of how you have helped to make a difference.
