Get moving with Tigers' Around The World Race

The ice and snow have finally gone, making this the perfect time to join the other 500 #TigersFamily members participating in the Leicester Tigers Foundation Around the World Challenge.

With a total of 22,000 miles covered by all of our teams, we have almost completed a lap of the globe, but the work is not over yet and we’d love you to get involved.

The Challenge was launched to support fitness and well-being at Leicester Tigers and our Global Partners Clubs across the world while also trying to support the Tigers Foundation’s work in delivering education and inclusion programmes within our community.

Anyone can contribute to their total from their own exercise routines in a race with Global Partnership Clubs from KL Tigers, RC Diok, Bangkok Lions, Rugby Colorno, Dendermonde RFC and Delhi Hurricanes to find the fastest to lap the world.

Distances covered in the Fit Fans sessions published online on Thursdays count too.

And if you can make a donation or raise some sponsorship from friends and family along the way to aid the Foundation, that would be even better.

If any further motivation was needed, everyone who makes a contribution to the Foundation of £10 or more will be entered into a draw to win a Tigers shirt.

The Earth’s equatorial circumference is:

  • 24,901 miles
  • 40,075.017 kilometres
  • 40,075,017 metres

It sounds a lot, but working together we can do it.

Whether you walk, run, cycle, row or can measure the distance covered in any other exercise, however great or small, however quickly or steadily, you can join the Tigers team and hopefully help the Foundation in its work too.

Each club has its own Strava link (search for the Leicester Tigers Foundation club page) to add your mileage and the first club who completes the mileage will be crowned the Around The World champion.

Check here to find your logsheet, the Just Giving link and more information on the Foundation and the Challenge. And get moving with us!
