SQUASH-A-MILE!
01-Mar-10:
SQUASH FANS BACK SPORT RELIEF AS THEY ‘SQUASH-A-MILE!’

Squash fans around the UK will be lending their support to Sport Relief by taking part in a one mile shuttle-run this month, with the chance of winning tickets to the ISS Canary Wharf Squash Classic Grand Final, which takes place on 26 March on the all-glass court at the spectacular East Wintergarden venue.

The challenge consists of a full mile (1.6km) shuttle-run between the front and back walls of a squash court (9.75 metres in length). The 165 lengths must include a hand touch at each end and be witnessed by a playing partner or spectator. Competitors are asked to attempt the run at their own local squash club and send through details to claim the unofficial world record and their tickets to the Grand Final!


Run girls, run ... only 164 to go ....

Tim Garner, Eventis Tournament Director, has set the challenge with his own time of 8m 53s and encourages squash fans and charity runners alike to Squash-a-mile! for Sport Relief.

He said, “With our event running from 22 – 26 March, immediately after Sport Relief, this year was the perfect opportunity to get involved in a hugely worthwhile initiative. Hopefully our challenge will be a fun novelty for all of those who give it a go!”

“I know how competitive some of our squash players can be so this should be a great chance to use that drive for a good cause. I would advise them to build up to the full mile, as I now know from experience that it is hard work! I know I will be trying to shave a few seconds off my time ahead of the event and expect the top times to come in about the eight minute mark.”

As an incentive, ISS Canary Wharf Classic organisers have offered VIP Grand Final tickets to the competitor with the most money raised, as well as giving the opportunity for some of the fastest participants to get on court with a squash pro to Squash-a-Mile! on Finals day in front of a packed crowd.
