TRAT: The Race Against Time: Fastest Charity LEJOG
The Race Against Time is a unique endurance charity challenge event and the fastest fully supported Charity LEJOG that we know about. It involves a group of up to 12 people cycling End to End from Lands End to John O Groats in just six days to raise money for Bishop Simeon Trust! That's an average of 145 miles a day, and a total of 874 miles in less than a week to raise money for charity and a really great cause, impacting the lives of orphans and children in South Africa. TRAT is exclusively developed for a small number of riders so that we can dedicated the highest possible care and attention to each of our amazing cyclists and enable them to complete this charity challenge of the fastest fully supported charity LEJOG to the best of their ability.
TRAT was originally started by Ciaran Doran in 2004. Having completed TRAT, he quoted:
'At least once in our lives we should all do something a little bit crazy for a cause that we believe in passionately'
To date over £150,000 has been raised for HIV/AIDS projects in South Africa supported by the Bishop Simeon Trust, who assist in alleviating suffering caused by HIV/AIDS by providing support, care and education for those living or impacted by the disease. The most vulnerable of course are orphans and young teenagers and it is estimated that in the last 8 years we have been able to support some 30,000 children and their families.
