The Challenge - Benali's Big Race 2016

Friday, 30th September 2016

Francis will set out to visit all 44 Premier League and Championship grounds in just two weeks, making his man-powered journey by a combination of running and cycling. Every day he will run a minimum of one marathon (26.2 miles) and cycle more than twice that distance. The target is to raise more than £1M for Cancer Research.

Benali's Big Race 2016

Football fans might be familiar with the name, especially if you support Southampton, as he’s a club legend.  The former professional footballer and coach spent the majority of his 20 year playing career with the club and you might have also seen him on Sky Sports, Match of The Day or even celebrity cooking shows!

Impsport are hugely proud to be supporting Benali in this epic quest for a worthy charity. We’ll be following him every step on the way on Twitter and Facebook, and there is also a website with stats, facts and an interactive map of his progress.
