On June 26th around 80 people will be taking part in the 2012 Card Gains Olympic Challenge!
The challenges involves walking a 30 kilometre circular route, starting at Putney Wharf by the Thames in London, and incorporating Tower Bridge as part of the journey. There will be support teams along the route providing refreshment as well as the all important encouragement to participants and it is hoped that all those involved will stay afterwards for a meal (and beers) at the Boat House in Putney. The organisers hope that all the walkers will also take part in this year’s theme and choose a code name based on a past or present Olympian, in-keeping with London hosting the Olympics this summer.
