The Embark Winter Solstice Challenge


The Embark Winter Solstice Challenge starts on the 16th June. The goal is to ride 180kms over 4 days or run 50kms over 4 days or BOTH! You can ride or run as little or as much per day, as long as the totals are reached by the end of the Sunday.  If you would like to join the Embark group rides and runs for this each day, please get in touch with us. Depending on the weather we will look to ride around 60kms of Thursday as it’s a public holiday. Then 30kms before work on Friday. Saturday will be a longer ride again 60kms, and then completing the distance of 30km on Sunday followed by breakfast and coffee with the runners. The run will be 12.5km/d for the 4 days respectively.    


We repeat the challenge again in summer and this gets the riders to 360km, just like the degrees the Earth has made around the Sun. The runners get to 100kms!
