Chestnut Homes team are gearing up for charity challenges
Staff from county developer Chestnut Homes are busy training to take on several sporting challenges.
A team of 11 budding cyclists from the housebuilder – which is based in Langworth, near Lincoln – will be taking part in the 100-mile Castle to Coast to Castle (C2C2C) charity cycle ride on June 29th.
And one of the cyclists, who is also a keen runner, is also preparing to take on two 10k runs, including the Lincoln 10k on April 2nd.
Neil Kempster, Land and Development Director at Chestnut Homes, said: “The C2C2C challenge is a great way to keep fit while taking in the sights of Lincolnshire and supporting good causes, so we’re pleased to be taking part again this year.
“The event’s three chosen charities – LIVES, Men’s Sheds projects and the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance – are all very deserving causes and we look forward to raising some money for them.
“Last year was a testing ride, but one we are proud to have taken part in. Our preparations for this year’s ride are well underway, and the team are all looking forward to the big day.”
The route for this year’s 100-mile ride is currently being finalised – last year, cyclists rode out of Lincoln and across the Wolds, to the coast at Anderby Creek, down to Chapel St Leonards and back.
As well as training for the bike ride, Chestnut Homes’ Marketing Manager Chrissy Dodman is busy training to take part in both the Nottingham and Lincoln 10k, as well as an inflatable obstacle course race in Newark.
Chrissy said: “This will be my fourth year running the Lincoln 10k, and it is always a great race to be involved in.
“I’m even looking at my first triathlon at Woodhall Spa in June if my swimming is up to scratch.”
The Lincoln 10k route encompasses some of the city’s historic landmarks, including Lincoln Cathedral.
