Join Us For The 2017 Football To Amsterdam Challenge!

7 February 2017

500 cyclists, 3 days, 2 countries, 1 aim. Help stop prostate cancer being a killer!

Barnsley fans are invited to join Prostate Cancer UK and the EFL this June for the biggest ride (and party) in football! You can represent the Reds for the two-day, 145 mile pedal-pilgrimage ending with a night out in Amsterdam.

The event takes place on 9-11 June 2017 and spans two nights and three days (two days cycling). It’s your chance to ride alongside some footballing legends and like-minded fans in a bid to get fit and raise vital funds for a great cause. What's more, Barnsley's very own Angus MacDonald is also joining us for the challenge so it's your chance to take to the roads alongside the Reds central defender!

There are two start points for the challenge, one in London and one right here at Oakwell Stadium where a sea of club colours will ride together through the English countryside to Harwich and Hull respectively. Once in Holland the two routes will converge with cyclists united in their Prostate Cancer UK cycling jerseys.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer, while the odds for black men are just 1 in 4.

Last year eight Barnsley FC supporters joined the fight against prostate cancer by taking on the challenge and collectively raised an incredible £15,000 for the charity! Even more Reds have signed up for the 2017 challenge as this fantastic event continues to fight against a disease that kills one man every hour.

You can now join the fight and get pedalling for pounds to help stop prostate cancer being a killer. Find out more and sign up for the challenge online now by CLICKING HERE!
