That's right - Lap the Map is back! Join Team Glasgow for another epic virtual fundraising challenge
In the ultimate east coast versus west coast charity challenge, we're going head-to-head against Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity with a brand new challenge.
Lap the Map is a virtual race between Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity and Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity supporters, taking place from Monday 3rd until Sunday 30th May 2021.
Over 1,000 of you took part in last year's challenge which saw both teams Lap the Map of Scotland, then Lap the distance around the world's equator. We need your support more than ever to show Edinburgh that the West is the best in 2021!
This year, you'll join us to lap Europe - all 𝟳𝟱,𝟴𝟲𝟴𝗸𝗺 of its key coastlines - before our Edinburgh rivals!
You can set your own goals to contribute to Team Glasgow’s total by walking, running, or wheeling in your wheelchair. Every kilometre counts and we’ll keep you posted on which countries you’ve lapped as you go.
Once you register, you'll be invited to track your miles via our exclusive 2021 Strava Club to help the best team in the West rack up the most kilometers by the end of the challenge, raising as much as possible along the way. For those of you who joined last year, this will be a new 2021 Strava Club.
How do I take part?
Register for the event below. Once you register we'll send you a fundraising pack, t-shirt, and instructions on how to join our Strava Club to track your distances.
Keep an eye on your emails - we'll soon update you on which map you will be aiming to lap in this year's fundraising challenge. You'll be able to set your own goals to contribute to the overall distance of Team Glasgow by walking, running, or in your wheelchair.
Set up a JustGiving page and ask all your friends, family, and colleagues to sponsor you to Lap the Map with us. Every pound you raise in sponsorship will help to ensure that Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity can continue being there for those who need us most, beyond the Covid-19 crisis.
