On September 11th & 12th 2021, we will be competing in the Coast to Coast Rat Race in the highlands of Scotland. Led by our Managing Director Graeme Borchard, our teams will join 1000 other Rat Racers as they run, cycle, and kayak over 105 gruelling miles through one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.
If I donate, where is the money going?
Donations will go to the leading national children’s charity ‘Children with Cancer UK‘. They are to the fight against childhood cancer. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the charity lost 40% of its funding in 2020. Your donation today will help give the gift of hope to children facing cancer. As well as helping to secure the future of the charity’s life-saving research.
Who are the UK Bathrooms team members?
Our two teams of two are hard at work preparing and training for this extreme adventure. Graeme is joined by Greg Harrison, Sean Easey and Brian Williams.
Where can I follow the journey?
Over the next 4 weeks, join us on our Instagram as we watch our teams train, prepare, and raise money for the cause. During the actual event. We have a team of UK Bathroom employees following, supporting, and filming our teams. Shortly after the event, we will release a video on our Youtube showcasing the best and worst bits of the gruelling race.
