Twenty-five years after running twenty-six miles, half of the original team are bravely cycling all or part of the 1,050 mile route in support of LandAid, Dementia UK & other nominated charities.
A quarter of a century ago, a group of 26 fit and healthy young men and women from the property industry decided to take on the London Marathon to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital and successfully raised an enormous half a million pounds for the charity.
Now in 2013, with that same drive and determination to go the extra mile for ground-breaking charities, and unfazed by the trial that lies ahead, 21 JOGLERs, half from the original marathon team, together with some brave new souls, are returning in May to face the next great challenge – cycling from John O’Groats to Land’s End (JOGLE). Some JOGLERs will complete the journey over 18 days and others will do it in just 10 days, and those harder pressed for time will join the peloton along various legs of the route. Together, they hope to raise as much, if not more, than they did back in 1988.
