Twenty-two damp but determined riders completed the gruelling 100-mile RideLondon challenge on Sunday to fundraise for Panathlon.

Our hardy pedallers were among the 20,000 entrants who cycled in wet and blustery conditions from central London to the beautiful Essex countryside and back again to finish on Tower Bridge in the heart of the capital city.

Panathlon’s team included 10 riders from our friends at Verisk – it was just one of various fundraising challenges that its staff are tackling for us this year.

Panathlon also owes a huge thank you to Daniel Hammond, a teacher at Alexandra School in North London who have taken part in a host of Panathlon events in recent years including girls’ football, 10-pin bowling and a swimming gala.

As a thank you to Panathlon, Daniel wanted to ‘give back’ by fundraising for us at RideLondon. He completed the 100-mile course and has so far raised nearly £600. Any more kind donations very welcome!

Thank you also to Sean from Woodland Group and our always reliable team of Jonathan, Martyn, Nick and John (pictured below) from partner organisations who have ran, biked and swam for Panathlon over the last few years, raising thousands of ounds in the process!

Howard Scholes completed his fifth fundraising event for Panathlon, this time joined by his daughter Jane and boyfriend Josh (pictured below).

We’d like to say a massive thank you to all our riders for their incredible efforts this year. See you back at the starting line in 2025!

If you’d like to take part in Swim Serpentine on 14 September or the Royal Parks Half Marathon on 6 October and raise funds for Panathlon, we have charity entries.
