One F’in Mile!

On Saturday 17 August there’s going to be something decidedly different going on in the scuba diving world…the team at Bite-Back, in conjunction with Mares, are challenging divers to walk a mile in their fins around Kempton Park Race course in Surrey!

Why not get a team together and enter the race? Maybe you could do a ‘grand national’ style sweepstake in your office to raise money. Bite-back (and the sharks) would love you forever if you took part and raised £100 in sponsorship! The money raised will help fund their campaign to ban shark-fin soup, so it’s an incredibly worthwhile cause.

You can choose to walk 1 mile or you could do 1 lap of the course (1.4 miles). It costs £20 to enter and you can do that here or for more information have a look at the Bite-Back website here.

The team at Bite-Back has already clocked a time of 53 minutes for a full lap, but has put its slow time down to ‘fits of giggles’ and ‘moon-walking like Michael Jackson’. And don’t worry about damaging your fins, the ground is very soft under fin and the mud will wash off the next time you jump in the water!

There will be prizes for the fastest, slowest and the best dressed! Chantal – maybe it’s time to get that banana costume out again!

Nothing unusual here...carry on!

I’d sponsor Chantal to do the f’in mile in her banana costume!

This is going to be such a fun event so let us know if you want to take part and maybe we could put a DLL team together! Some of our divers will be away on our Red Sea trip so won’t be able to make it, but they’ll do another fancy dress dive there to raise money too!
