21 April - 10 July 2020
To commemorate this significant anniversary, we are challenging you to walk, run, jog, swim, row or bike 80K in 80 days. The Challenge will start from the 21 April, and you will have until the 10 July (the start of the Battle of Britain) to complete it. Our challenge is virtual which means you too can participate and complete the challenge from anywhere in the world. After you have completed the 80K then you just submit your log and we will post you an exclusive Hurricane 80K Challenge medal.
The Hurricane, often under-valued in importance in comparison to the Spitfire, played an influential role in protecting Britain from the Luftwaffe during the summer of 1940. We thought we would give this amazing aircraft the spotlight it deserves. This challenge can also be completed anywhere in the world! During the Second World War RAF Fighter Command had pilots sign up from all over the Commonwealth and occupied Europe. They came from New Zealand, Australia, Canada, South Africa, France and Poland to fly and fight. So join us, wherever you live, and challenge yourself to complete 80K in 80 days!
