LEJOG 2020 Corporate Teams

Why take part with colleagues?

Our Land’s End to John O’Groats Cycle Challenge will be an unforgettable experience for everyone involved. Taking part with colleagues provides you the opportunity to build stronger relationships across the business and to have fun together outside of your usual working environment, while doing something spectacular as a team by raising funds for Transaid’s vital work.

The challenge also provides a great opportunity for team building and creating connections with other corporate teams taking part. Pedalling alongside cyclists from across the industry, from CEOs and Operations Directors to Transport Managers and warehouse staff; there’s nothing quite like the camaraderie on a cycle challenge like this.

Your team will also benefit from the wide range of PR and branding opportunities that come with taking part in a Transaid cycle challenge; now renowned in the industry trade press after 13 years of cycling throughout Europe and Africa.


Options to enter a team for Land’s End to John O’Groats 2020

  • Take on the full end-to-end distance as a team. This will provide you the opportunity to really accomplish something amazing together. Each team member will need to pay a registration fee of £250 and commit to raising £2,750 – remember that the target can also be shared as well; so a 4 person team would have a total target of £11,000.
  • Share the distance and take on a stage each. Our relay team option is designed specifically for a 4 person team to split the distance and each take on a single stage, ensuring your company logo will be represented throughout the whole ride! Your team registration fee will be £400 and your team fundraising target £4,000. All you need to do is figure out who is taking on what stage!
  • Take on a single stage as a team. There’s no limit to the number of colleagues you can get involved in a single stage. Each team member will need to pay a registration fee of £150 and commit to raising £1,250 but this can also be treated as a team fundraising goal too; so a 4 person team would have a total target of £5,000.
