As the Lionesses aim to bring home the UEFA Women's Championship in Netherlands, Stevenage Ladies are preparing for another big season in the FA Women's Premier League and are aiming to raise money to support their 2017-18 campaign by sharing the same journey as the Lionesses!

On Saturday 29th July, in partnership with David Lloyd Stevenage, the ladies team will be running and cycling the distance between each of the stadiums that England play their group games before heading to the final venue of FC Twente in Enschede, a total of 175 miles!

The journey includes:

  • FC Utrecht (Stadion Galgenwaard) to NAC Breda (Rat Verlegh Stadion) - 44 Miles
  • NAC Breda (Rat Verlegh Stadion) to Willem II (Koning Willem II Stadion) - 16 Miles
  • Willem II (Koning Willem II Stadion) to FC Twente (De Grolsch Veste) - 115 Miles

Players, coaches and members of staff from David Lloyd gym and Stevenage FC Foundation will undertake the journey at the David Lloyd gym on the Leisure Park in Stevenage.

The challenge will begin at 10:30am and Stevenage FC Foundation will also have their Target Cage on hand with the chance to win two tickets to see Stevenage men's first team during the 2017-18 season. There will also be a special appearance from Boro Bear!

Stevenage Ladies Chairman, Dave Potter said:

"The ladies team wanted to do something to recognise the impact that the Lionesses are having on the grassroots game back in England and raising these vital funds, helps the squad to challenge in the FA Women’s Premier League and provide an achievable exit route for all the girls playing football in and around Stevenage".

 David Lloyd Sports Manager, Cameron Bridger said:

“We have a great relationship with Stevenage Football Club and supporting this challenge to help the ladies team raise money for the 2017-18 season, is something we’re proud to be a part of”.
