The Blogging Community is pulling together once again this year as Team Honk to raise money for Sport Relief. This year’s challenge began at Lands End on 12th January, a baton is being passed through 38 teams, finishing at John O’Groats on 23rd March. With over 200 bloggers taking part this year, the aim is to raise over £20,000.00 as the relay zigzags across the country.
The Team Honk baton will arrive in Oxford late on Friday 7th February from Team Honk Reading. Why not come along on Saturday 8th February at 9am to cheer on Rob as he runs from the Radcliffe Camera to Eynsham.
The baton will then be passed to Katie from Randomnest and fellow team mates, non-bloggers Kelly, Jayne, Kath (not in our photo) and Frankie who will then cycle from The Talbot Hotel in Eynsham to Chipping Sodbury. Early afternoon on 9th February, Team Honk Oxford will pass on the baton to Bristol Team Honker Rachel from Mummy Glitzer at the Cross Hands Hotel in Chipping Sodbury.
It has to be said, that although Rob has run some half marathon’s before, Katie and her friends are not used to cycling long distances. They are rather mad, but committed to help the cause.
Monkey and I don’t own bikes, but we’ll be in Eynsham to cheer in Rob, and cheer off Katie and her team with Monkey’s Micro Scooter!
Katie would really love the people of Oxfordshire to support Team Honk Oxford as they complete virtually 60 miles as part of this mammoth relay. Come and cheer them on, sponsor them and help us to raise as much money as possible for Sport Relief.
We’d love you to sponsor Team Honk Oxford – it’s so easy, just click here or you can just Text HONK to 70005 to donate £5 to Sport Relief. These guys will be exhausted by the time their leg is finished – please make it worth their while!
The first ever Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games take place from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd March 2014. The public can join the fun and games by running, swimming or cycling their way to raising cash at over a thousand venues around the country, including the landmark events at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
As one of the biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active raise cash and change lives. The money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to help transform the lives of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people both at home in the UK and across the world.

Hope it goes well and the weather is kind!!! 🙂
So do I Jenny, I will feel so bad for them if it’s as bad as this week
A great cause, and some very good running efforts, must be worth a cheer and a few pennies. Will see what I can do! 🙂
I’m am just praying that the weather improves for them, cycling in torrential rain will be awful
Huzzah! The best of luck to the whole Oxford crew for tomorrow – and thank you so very much for supporting, that money raised changes lives, it’s an awesome thing to be part of xx
It’s nice to help, even if just in a really small way. I am in awe of what Katie and the crew did over the weekend – amazing!
Thanks for the mention – a great result from TeamOxford too
Katie did an amazing job and well done to you and Monkey for your support
