Perseus to Perseus Challenge

This October, staff from The Trentham Estate will be completing a marathon charity challenge, raising vital funds for three charities - Stoke's Douglas Macmillan Hospice, LandAid and the Alzheimer's Society.

From Trentham to Florence... a charity challenge with a difference

The Challenge

We'll be running, walking or jogging 884 miles from our statue of Perseus at Trentham Gardens to the original statue of Perseus, located at Piazza della Signoria in Florence, Italy. But we'll be completing the challenge without leaving the boundaries of the Trentham Estate, as we run, walk and jog around the Capability Brown designed lake at the heart of Trentham Gardens.

A lap of the lake racks up 2.2 miles, meaning the 884-mile target equals 401.8 laps throughout the month of October - averaging 13 laps per day.
