An amazing team of Blenheim Palace staff, their families and members of the local community took on an incredible challenge to travel 3,502 land miles on exercise bikes, pedal bikes and on foot in 24 hours but achieved an incredible 4,105.62 miles. 250 people took part including local fire brigades. The challenge was to achieve the same number of nautical miles that Lord George Blandford and the Oar Inspiring Team rowed the Atlantic in 2018.
The funds raised more than doubled the initial target, raising an impressive £12.5K for The Archway Foundation and for Starlight Foundation. A special thanks to Jo Young of Blenheim who organised the event and was one of team who stayed up all night making sure that everyone was fed and watered and well looked after. Thank you Blenheim – what an uplifting and inspiring team.
