Dates for your diary

Posted by in Blogs

With 40 days left before the end of the year, and 8 challenges still to go, would love to see/ meet you all at least one more time before the 52in52 year is out.

While you’ve got time this weekend, check out the below and see if any fit with your interests and your diary.

Tomorrow – CIRCLE LINE RELAY. Not too late to join so please do come along and join the 80 people already signed up! 10.30am Sheldon Square by Paddington. Join eXerK, Wistla and Movember

Mon 23rd Nov – LIVE TV. If you’re by a TV at 9am on Monday morning – tune into London Live channel for 2 minutes – hopefully I’ll be on it, being eloquent and composed…not garbled and shakey…eek.

Mon 30th Nov – PUB SESSION. 7pm at The Harrison WC1. Any excuse for a drink – this time we’re celebrating the end of November and the completion of Challenge No. 45: Everest by stairs. Everyone welcome so do pop along

Fri 4th Dec – END OF DANCE VIDEO COMPETITION. Enter to win a BMX or horse riding session at the Olympic park by submitting your suggestion of a choreographed dance video for us all to dance the final challenge of the year to. Post your videos to enter

Sun 6th Dec – OFF ROAD BIKING DAY. Join Challenge No. 46 on Surrey’s off road bike tracks. We will rent bikes on the day. Will probably get a guide to take us so all levels welcome (I’m a novice). Come get muddy

Sat 12th Dec – OLYMPIC BMX TRACK. Challenge no. 47 can be joined by entering the dance video competition detailed above as it’s the prize (or horse riding is)

Sun 13th Dec – STATUE WALK. Challenge no. 48. Choice of 6/12/18/26 mile hike through London via a selection of our city’s statues (the ones we walk past every day but don’t even notice and know nothing about). Walk with me

Tue 15th Dec – TALK AND DRINKS. 7pm Notting Hill £10 on the door. Inspire Your Adventure have invited me to give a talk about the 52in52. There will be festive drinks too so come drink and listen to me in the background!

Sat 19th Dec – 9 HOLES OF GOLF. Challenge no. 49. As you can imagine, this one isn’t open to be joined but will be posting about some evening practice (I can’t play golf yet) if you want to come join me on eXerK FB page and on my profile on Wistla so get on that!

Mon 21st Dec – 52 MIN SWIM. Challenge no. 50. Clubbing together the distance each of us can swim in 52 minutes, let’s see how far we get…cross the Atlantic? Jump in and join

Sat 26th Dec – BOXING DAY OUTDOOR SWIM. Where ever you are, go for a dip in outdoor water. I’ll be doing it in the Thames as am out of London but the best London outdoor pools include heated options! Let’s do it!

And lastly:

Thur 31st Dec – FINALE DANCE CHALLENGE. Whatever you are doing, who ever you are celebrating with, I challenge you to do the chosen eXerK dance (once we have a competition winner for the chosen video). Film it, send it in and I’ll be making a video montage of all the action. Dance your heart out

So excited about these last 8 – going to be a lot of fun – especially with you all being part of it so do stand up, get active and be involved.

Stay active people,
