Saturday 10th March saw celebrity teams from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales go head-to-head in the DHL First Nation Home challenge. Over seven days, the teams covered a gruelling distance of more than 1,000 miles around the four nations.
On Sunday 25th March the teams will be joined by members of the public for the final 6-mile leg of the challenge, in a bid to be crowned the ‘First Nation Home’. Registration is now closed, but you can still support your team by sponsoring them now:
The celebrity teams have collectively covered the mind-blowing distance of over 4,500 miles – sailing, rowing, running and cycling against the clock in a bid to be crowned the First Nation Home! They suffered bumps, bruising and blisters, but the challenge isn’t over yet. On Sunday 25 March, they will be joined my members of the public in a final 6-mile race which will help determine who is crowed the First Nation Home. The competition is currently too close to call, there’s still everything to play for.
Registration for the race is now closed, but you can make the difference and help your nation win the title of First Nation Home. Each team’s fundraising total will count towards their final score. So sponsor your team today, not only will you help their chances of winning, but your donation will also support Sport Relief and help change lives.
The whole First Nation Home challenge wouldn’t be possible without the help of some amazing partners.
See who they are and how they’re helping.
You don’t have to join the First Nation Home team to make a difference. There are hundreds of Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Miles taking place across the UK and, with 1, 3 or 6 miles to choose from, there’s a distance to suit you too.
