Racing Does Sport Relief 2018

With Sport Relief just around the corner, racing will be showing its support for the charity through a number of activities designed to help get the nation moving.

This year, Sport Relief has set the nation the challenge of reaching 1 billion steps every day during the course of the week (17th – 23rd March) and Great British Racing are here to help smash that target!

During the world famous Cheltenham Festival, we will be launching an exciting pop up activation area on site called The Cheltenham Hill Challenge on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th March, where we will be inviting all racefans to come and take part in climbing a new version of the famous Cheltenham Hill!

Instead of trekking up the grassy incline, two treadmills will be positioned and set to the gradient of the famous hill, and we will be encouraging the public to come and walk or run up ‘the hill’ as a warm up to Sport Relief’s 1 billion daily step target the following week.

The steps will be displayed on the Sport Relief app and Great British Racing has set up a league where various racing organisations can join and log their steps to see which team has contributed the most to the steps tally.

To support Sport Relief and contribute to racing’s step efforts, download the Sport Relief app here and join the Great British Racing league. Plus if you’re heading to Cheltenham Festival this year, make sure you visit the Cheltenham Hill Challenge tent and get moving for Sport Relief.  Money raised will help people here in the UK and across the world live happier, healthier and safer lives.
