There are highlighted landmark destinations along the way, from Paris to Strasburg to Moscow, Beijing and Chagsha.

The added challenge is to reach tthe final destination in time to mark the 155th anniversary of The Langham, London, on 10th June 2020.
The challenge begins TODAY, Wednesday 15th April. Colleagues from the hotel make up athletic teams of walkers, runners and cyclists who can contribute miles. They use their daily outdoor exercise time or contribute through the use of exercise bikes or treadmills indoors. All clock miles towards the challenge.
Each team member has been asked to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship for the NHS COVID-19 Urgent Appeal. All funds raised are being captured through a JustGiving page. https://bit.ly/RaceToHongKong
