Ben launches new series of virtual challenge events

By autotech-nath on March 17, 2023

Ben, the automotive industry charity, is inviting the whole automotive community to take on Benathlon and exercise in their own way to raise vital funds and support those who are struggling or in crisis.

The first Benathlon runs from 10th to 24th March. To take part, each participant, or team of up to 4, will cover a total of 1,283 miles and can choose where and how they complete the challenge, walking, cycling, running, swimming, or even by horse riding or skipping – or a mixture of whatever you choose!

It’s free to take part but the minimum fundraising requirement is £75 per person. Those taking part will track their progress online and be able to see their location on the virtual 1,283-mile route which starts and finishes at Ben’s Headquarters near Ascot and visits some of the UK’s most iconic race circuits. Virtual medals and titles will be awarded for various achievements.

Ben’s Matt Wigginton, says: “We are very excited to be launching our new virtual challenge event series, Benathlon! In the current economic climate, Ben needs the automotive industry’s backing now more than ever so that we can continue to support
those who are struggling or in crisis. Many people are looking to improve their fitness and achieve something great at this time of year so now is the perfect time to challenge yourself, challenge your colleagues and support our automotive industry family!
