400 Miles In 40 Hours

Paul Bannister embarks on a gruelling challenge to launch our Challenge 40 event.

Starting at 6am on June 18th, seven magnificent cyclists will attempt to cycle 400 miles in under 40 hours.

This impressive challenge marks the launch of ManHealth's brand new Challenge 40 campaign.

According to the World Health Organisation, someone in the world ends their own life every 40 seconds. This is a terrifying statistic and ManHealth want to challenge it by raising awareness of the inner battles faced by those struggling with their mental health; and to raise funds so that we can better support the men struggling across our local community and beyond.

The team involved in this challenge are:

  • Paul Bannister
  • Gordon Panicca
  • Roy Ashman
  • Brian Smart
  • Richard Thompson
  • Dr Anne Young
  • Ulrich Freyburger
