** Exciting challenge**
Introducing HUMBERSIDE RACE ACROSS THE UK!
Starting from Monday 15th February – helping us all stay active and connected during this lockdown period!!
Humberside netball clubs will be travelling across the UK (virtually of course) visiting all the home venues of the 11 superleague franchises, collectively covering the distance from John o’Groats to Land’s End. But which club will be the first to complete this huge journey of 1,348 miles?
Any activity can be included; walking, running and cycling. Record your activity on smart devices. There are numerous FREE apps you can download on your phone to monitor your activity such as STRAVA.
Participating members should record their distances and send your screenshots to Bella via email firstname.lastname@example.org. Send in your miles/km everyday (ideally by 7pm) to be added onto the ‘league table’. This will be updated each evening on Twitter and Instagram.
This is a huge club effort with plenty of mini-challenges to look out for. Please keep an eye on our social media pages 👀.
Tag us in your stories or posts using #HNCAgoesthedistance.
Good luck all and we look forward to your participation.
THE RACE IS ON!!

The club would like to say a huge thank you to Bella for co-ordinating this challenge across the club.
Daily Updates from Bella
Day 1 – Monday 15th Feb
A good start to the challenge, Allus are currently third in the leaderboard!!
Massive well done to all of those that have taken part so far – had people from all parts of the club!🎉
So far our seniors are smashing it for us, in both the amount of people taking part and total distance but the U11s are following closely behind!! Get out and about tomorrow to help your age group to the top🏃🏼♀️
If you’ve not let Bella know of any miles you’ve done today, you can still send them in and they will get added to tomorrow’s total,
Massive shoutout to Emma in the U11s who has done the furthest distance so far!🚲
Total miles so far are 114.54 so keep up the good work everyone! Only 170 miles until we get to our first franchise and mini challenge at Strathclyde Sirens😍
Polite reminder to try and include the age group the girls are in (eg U14) when you email. Just so we can keep track of everyone a bit easier😁
And just to clear up a few questions:
• Just the members (including coaches so best get running😉) of the club’s miles count towards the challenge but of course we encourage everyone to join in getting active!
• Miles/km should be tracked as individual walks/runs/cycles through the day if possible!
Any questions give Bella an email on the same email you send your scores to – email@example.com
