Welcome to thePoint4’s official Spinathon 2017 page. Here you can find out everything you need to know about this years event.
What Is Spinathon?
Spinathon is a 24 hour endurance event held at thePoint4 on Venns Lane in Hereford, taking place from 9 am – 9 am 24/25 February. There are three main aims; to keep your bike spinning for the full 24 hours, have fun, and raise money for a good cause.
Following the phenomenal success of our previous Spinathon’s we have decided that this year we would like to set ourselves a specific target to enhance what we offer to our members and our of the Spas – one for public use and one for student use to make it a more pleasurable experience for those who currently use it, and to encourage more people to reap the benefits post exercise or just for relaxation. We will also improve the Hydrotherapy pool area.
After raising just under £18,000 last year we would like to try, with your help once again, to raise £20,000 this time. The funds raised will be split 50/50 between the refurbishment of the spa and hydrotherapy areas mentioned, and the other 50% of funds raised will be donated to the RNC to help develop essential services for students who are blind or partially sighted.
In previous years we have seen some teams come in fancy dress or have a ‘team theme’ this is welcomed and encouraged. Teams can be comprised of a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 24 participants, with the option to change rider every hour.
How Do I Apply?
Over the last 4 years Spinathon has grown from fairly humble beginnings with just 20 teams taking part, four years on and we are aiming to up that number to 70 teams! Spin bikes can be reserved on a first come first served basis, simply pick up an application form from thePoint4 reception.
