The Gretton Charity Sportive returns on Saturday 25th June 2022

A recent study published in the American College of Sports Medicine showed that just one 30-minute exercise session could boost your mood and tackle depression. These chemical messengers can create euphoria and pain relief that is stronger than that produced by morphine.

The Gretton Charity Sportive will take you a little longer than 30 minutes to complete when it returns for its 4th
year on Saturday 25th June. The stunning backdrop of the Welland Valley will boost the health and mood of all our participants.

Cyclists will be very well catered for whether they choose to ride the 50km or 100km route. There will be well-stocked feed stations (featuring the return of cake now that Covid restrictions have ended!), including one at the popular cycling café Spokes, a sweeper van, finishers medals and a barbecue and bar at the finish line.

As in previous years, all profits from The Gretton Charity Sportive will go to The Travers Foundation.

Bruce Donald, Trustee of The Travers Foundation and Director of Wild Dog Events, says: ‘We’re delighted to be running this popular cycling event, now in its fourth year. We know many more people have been enjoying cycling during the lockdown. We want to put on a fun and challenging event for them whilst also supporting the fantastic work of The Travers Foundation. The Travers Foundation gives young people the opportunity to excel, which fits our ethos of helping people realise their full potential.’

Bruce added, “Why don’t you grab a few cycling pals and book before the 23rd May 2022 at
to benefit from the early bird discount.”
