Godolphin employees embark on epic trek for coronavirus charity challenge

Godolphin: ready to take on the winning line challenge
1 of 1

The staff across Godolphin's global operation are coming together to raise money for charity, attempting to travel 28,300 miles for charities supporting the fight against coronavirus.

Staff will be running, walking, swimming, riding or cycling to reach the target, which is the distance between all of the Godolphin bases.

The 'winning line' challenge started on Friday, May 31, and ends on June 26.

Hugh Anderson, managing director of Godolphin in the UK and Dubai said: "The Godolphin operation worldwide has adapted with great agility to the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

"We've done everything we can to keep going throughout a very difficult period for everyone. Away from our farms and the racetracks it has been great to see so many of our staff carrying out fantastic work in their local areas and this sees us take our community spirit to the next level as we all come together to take on this challenge.

"28,300 miles is long way – around the whole world in 36 days – if we all do our bit then I hope to see us cross that winning line together on June 26. Everything we raise will go to our charities to help our communities and our industry."
