Six Continents Challenge - Virtual TCS London Marathon


We are asking SA Chambers around the world if they would like to join us in raising vital funds for Breadline Africa.

Sharon Constançon, Chairman of the SA Chamber of Commerce UK, members, colleagues, and friends will be participating in the virtual TCS London Marathon, on 2 October, 2022, to raise funds for Breadline Africa and it would be fantastic to have as many people as possible from the SA Chamber of Commerce UK participating in the event, taking photos and video footage of your time out there. The virtual London Marathon gives you the freedom to choose how you take on the challenge - whether that be in in your running or walking togs or fancy dress, on your own or with friends, on holiday or from home.

The virtual TCS London Marathon gives you the choice to run or walk the 26.2 miles (42.2km) your way, on the route of your choice, at any time from 00:00 to 23:59:59 BST on Sunday 2 October 2022 – the same day as the in regular main London event through the City streets. There is even the option to take part on a different day if you are unable to run on the Sunday for religious reasons.

You can do it in stages or all at once - even on a treadmill! – it’s up to you! No wheels though!

The South African Chamber's challenge is to have at least one person from each continent, walking or running, to raise funds for Breadline Africa. 

We have now secured access to multiple tickets, so book yours as soon as you can, to be the first on your continent to secure your place and together we will raise enough funds to directly make a difference - the pennies add up!

All participants will collectively be part of our Strava Challenge, sharing the pain and pleasure, photographs and stories as we together take on our own personal challenge as we each walk 26.2 miles. You can join our Strava at no extra cost to see how many miles South Africans can walk in the day globally – to set up the challenge for next year.
