40,000 Steps for a Test Match or 200,000 Steps for the whole Series

It's been 40 years since the nation was glued to arguably the most exciting test series of all time. In honour of that series lets get our trainers on and walk through each Test and re live some of those memories.

Join us for a Test and walk 40,000 steps over the 6 days that test match took place (Sundays were rest days back in those days!) OR walk with us for the whole series which is 200,000 steps.

...from June 18th to September 1st 2021
