We are excited to be partnering with Rees Leisure on a number of exciting projects across the year encouraging our members to have fun and get active. Rees Leisure are the event organisers behind ABP Marathon, Cycle Southampton and have been fantastic supporters of JCI Southampton for a number of years!
JCI Southampton goes Netwalking
Between May and August we will be hosting a monthly Netwalking series (sponsored by Rees Leisure) where we’ll be organising a fun, relaxing walk exploring a different part of the city and surrounding area. These are open to members and non members alike and will be a great opportunity to meet new people, share ideas and get active!
Stay tuned for further details in the coming weeks and months.
ABP Southampton Marathon, Half and 10K
Rees Leisure has once again generously donated 10 free spaces to JCI members for the upcoming ABP Southampton Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K taking place on 26th April. If you are interested in taking one of the complementary places and running any of the distances please contact Zoe on [email protected]. We ask all runners to fundraise at least £50 in order to take up one of the spaces.
We will be raising money for our charity of the year, The Rainbow Project. The charity was established in 1981 and provides a range of services to vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in and around Southampton.
The Rainbow Project employs Young People (age 16-24) for a period of Twelve months, seconding them to organisations within and surrounding Southampton who support/ host the Young People giving them valuable skills which enable them to sustain future employment and change their lives as part of our ‘Life Chances’ scheme. In addition each young person is allocated a mentor as part of the charity’s Moving 4ward scheme.
JCI members will also receive a 10% discount to the inaugural Cycle Southampton taking place on 20th June 2020. This is a brand new event for 2020 and will be bringing a festival of cycling to Southampton. The day will be full of two wheel themed activities with the main events being two sportives and a set of criterium races.
- Standard Sportive – 100km
- Short Sportive – 60km
- Criterium – 1 mile
If you are interested in entering please contact Zoe at [email protected] if you’re interested in taking up one of the spots.
