Three Amigos In Britannia Challenge

Thumbnail

From the Britannia Stadium to Deepdale Stadium in Preston in 24 hours, think you could do that?

Well, three 20-something lads from Preston have set themselves the mammoth task of walking to Deepdale Stadium in Preston from the home of Stoke City Football Club, the Britannia Stadium in 24 hours or less.

Tom Cafferkey, Jamie England and Jake Oates are doing the 'walkathon' to raise money and awareness for a local Preston charity, The Katy Holmes Trust. The charity is campaigning to raise awareness of paediatric brain tumours and they're also fundraising to aid research in memory of lifelong Preston North End fan, Katy Holmes.

The trio have recently done a training walk while fundraising along the way with anyone donating to the cause being entered into a raffle to win two tickets to a Preston North End home game of their choice.

Jake said: "We've all got around 10 to 15 miles in the bank in terms of walking time now and we plan on increasing the distance by around 10-15% every few days so that we can work up toward the 67-mile distance."

Something like this is no mean feat and the fact they've set themselves a 24 hour time limit is very impressive. On top of this though, they will only be starting the walk with the bare essentials that they need to get them through which consists of slow release energy foods and gels, like flap jack and water to stay hydrated.

If you want to donate to the lads, and to such a fantastic cause, you can do so on their Just Giving page here - justgiving.com/24hourwalkathon.
