To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower setting sail, the Argyle Community Trust (ACT) is inviting more participants to take part in a challenge to virtually run the 5,029km it would take to reach Plymouth, Massachusetts from Plymouth in Devon.
The challenge, which began on October 1, runs until December 31. The 5,029km will be a cumulative total of ACT and any other contributing runners. The Argyle Community Trust is the official charity of the city's football team, Plymouth Argyle. It works on a number of local and regional projects to help the people of Plymouth and the South West, addressing issues including homelessness, loneliness, and health and wellbeing.
