Team Macy End to End Challenge
Blog – a virtual ‘move’ the length of Great Britain – this blog will follow the challenge for Team Macy to run, walk, swim or cycle the 874 miles from end to end. Please read this in the good humour that it is has been written. Due to Covid-
The challenge is soon to begin, at Lands-
It’s New Years Day, a new start to a new year and 21 intrepid members of Team Macy are all raring to begin their 874-

Mark heads up the Dalton clan, surely not for long as his competitive wife will soon realise that he is ahead of her at the close of the first week. Tan has actually stopped mid run, to chat to a local, walking a rather large red dog, and his wife, and his neighbour’s sister-
The Kenny’s started off the race together, however Paul K had to stop to update the map every time one of the racers ran another mile so soon dropped off behind leaving Jo to Forest-
Pheebs with her long stride really only took a few steps and managed to make it almost to Hayle on the A30, covering well over 10 miles in the first week, but just being overtaken at the last minute by Cath who assumed that her husband Richie Parker was in front unaware that he was still asleep in the starting car park!
George, another runner doubled the distance of Debs in the first week even after wavering slightly from the route to include a quick run up Chapel Carn Brea for more of a challenge. Debs meanwhile had got caught behind a large group of men dressed as gorillas intent on drinking their way to Scotland!
And finally, Lorette -
As week 1 draws to a close the Team have covered approx. 3% of their goal. Hopefully the slow starters will get moving after finishing Libby’s 16 batches of chocolate brownies and sleeping off the 12 bottles of prosecco and catch up with the others.
And so far the Team have raised £160 on their sponsor page!
Go Team Macy…..
