In June 2022 the 10th running of “The Longest Day Challenge” will be underway and once again raising money for Cancer Research UK.

The book for “LDC22” is open and we are collecting names and contact details of those who are interested in taking part in 2022 either as participant or volunteer.

The 2021 event raised an astonishing £75,000 and took the running total for the event to over £250,000 raised for Cancer Research UK since it all began back in 2012. It is an extraordinary amount of money, so Thank You to everyone who has taken part, volunteered, donated, or simply spread the word over the years. You have all made a difference to people lives.

The format seems to be working fine, so there won’t be any major changes for 2022 except for one crucial detail…

The maximum budget for the bike that used for the challenge has been doubled to £600 (not including the cost of tyres, brakes or MOT).

The entry fee will stay at £300 per person which goes towards providing accommodation, food and on road support.

We will continue to run from Lands End to John O’Groats on the 21st of June.

As usual, I’ll set a route nearer the time, and as usual it will be different to all previous routes used.

No MOT, no entry.

What happens next?

For now, all we need to do is establish a list of people who want to be kept informed about the 2022 event. We’ll start looking for deposits/firm commitment from that list of people that I gather around February and full payment by Easter when the book is closed, so we can then get all the accommodation booked.

So, there you have it, the 2022 book is open for people to register their interest – it is not a guarantee of a place. If you want your name putting in it, get in touch with your name, e-mail address and phone number, and we’ll add you to the 2022 database, then get back in touch with everyone on that database in February.

Send a message from your Facebook account or send an email to info@longestdaychallenge.com allowing 24 hours for us to get back to you!

Places are limited to an absolute maximum of 35, so if we do end up over-subscribed, it will come down to a first come first served basis and giving priority to people who didn't do it in 2021 or did but didn’t manage to complete the ride that time.
