Around the World in a Day

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The Hilton London Tower Bridge is inviting local people to travel "around the world in a day" as part of the Hilton in the Community Foundation's biggest ever national charity event.

Around the World in a Day participants will collectively aim to travel the circumference of the earth - 24,901.55 miles - by taking part in one of two events: the competitive Team Challenge or the more relaxed Miles4fun, designed for families.

Miles4fun is an all-inclusive family two-hour event where anyone of any age can complete a one-mile route around London Bridge. The Team Challenge is slightly more demanding and involves teams of four that have seven hours to complete as many miles as possible on cardiovascular equipment in the hotel foyer.

All net proceeds will be donated to BLISS through the Hilton in the Community Foundation. SE1-based BLISS, the premature baby charity, is dedicated to making sure that more babies born prematurely or sick in the UK survive and that each one had the best quality of life.
