We are very grateful for all your support, training and fundraising to-date, and hope you will be able to join us on the dates below in 2021.

Across the country and the world, everyone is coming to terms with the current situation in relation to the Coronavirus. At the Trust we are aware that this is hugely concerning for the cystic fibrosis community and we must ensure that everyone’s health and safety is our utmost priority.  

If you have any queries, or do not wish to transfer your place to 2021, please contact our team at events@cysticfibrosis.org.uk or telephone 020 3795 2176 and we will be happy to help. 

Thank you for your loyalty and passion, and thank you especially for your continued support for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

65km – not something that should be taken lightly, nor would I recommend doing it alone. Having the support of a great team of recovery drivers and teammates to share in the pain when it all gets really hard is definitely a must. Luckily for me, I had both!
