Although their Lodge isn’t yet consecrated, soon-to-be members of the Free Wheelers Lodge are gearing up for a fitness challenge aimed at shedding a few lockdown pounds and collecting pounds for the #Lincs2025 Festival in support of the Freemasons’ charity the MCF.
They’ve thrown down the gauntlet and set up a virtual event that works just as well in lockdown as out of it. Lodge founder member Chris Fletcher said: “In a nutshell, we’re asking participants to pledge to complete a 5KM, 10KM or 50KM distance walking, running, cycling – or any other non-motorised method.
“The rules are simple. People need to register by April 16th, and complete the distance they’ve chosen between May 1st and 8th. That means they don’t have to do it all at once, and can ‘chunk it out’ to make it easier if they’d prefer to do that. Once it’s done, they have until May 10th to upload distance and time onto the web site, and all competitors will get a medal. Everyone loves a medal,” he added.
Price for entry is £20 per event (you can do one, two or all three!) which includes the medal. All proceeds will go to the #Lincs2025 Festival.
There are also running and cycle tops to buy so you look the part when you complete the distance! More details and registration can be found here: Race for the Festival
