The group will be travelling by road, with the first section from Lancaster to Garstang being a walking leg alongside the Lancaster canal, a trek of around 13 miles.

A team will then go from Garstang to Bolton via road on bikes, a ride of around 30 miles, before finally, a team will run the final leg from Bolton right into the heart of Manchester city centre – a run of around 12 miles!

In total, the route is around 55 miles and participants will face a total elevation of more than 1,500ft across the 12 hour journey.

Jazz Banger, marketing consultant and corporate social responsibility lead at Premierline, said: “Premierline has supported Mind since 2019 and has raised funds for them through a number of charitable events.
