Tokyo Challenge 2: THE END!— Wavell PE (@Wavell_PE) June 6, 2020
That's it. We've done it! What started off as an idea to track our collective km's to reach Tokyo (after our school trip to the Olympics was cancelled) turned into a Euro-Asia adventure! Huge thanks to everyone who took part. Home for our 50th b'day! pic.twitter.com/B9ostHzsNF
As the Olympic Games were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic - and the school trip to Japan cancelled as a result we decided to embark upon a virtual journey from Farnborough to Tokyo instead. Our aim was to try and cover the 9,600 kilometre distance as a school community whilst out on our daily exercise!
We set off on 16th May 2020, uploading the distance of all walks/runs/cycles completed by staff, students and their families reaching Tokyo in 9 days.
Not only did we make it to Tokyo but we also completed the 24,000km round journey through 24 countries to return back home again! A huge thank you to everyone who took part and contributed to our epic journey.
