Flexi-Hex presents the Ocean Sheroes 270 Challenge
This summer, our Marketing Manager, Bella, and her team, Ocean Sheroes, are taking part in the Great Pacific Race – a 2,700 mile row from San Francisco to Hawaii. This is one of the toughest endurance races on earth and has only ever been completed by 60 people. To support and celebrate this incredible journey, we’ve come up with our very own challenge – the ‘270 Challenge’, which will run in line with when the girls are at sea, from 25th May until 13th July.

The 270 Challenge

The challenge involves completing 270 miles and raising £270 for the Seabin Project in teams of 4, over a period of 50 days - this is the current female-four World Record for the row between mainland USA and Hawaii.

The Prizes

We encourage participants to step outside of their comfort zone and explore their local landscape by using a combination of sports (from walking, running and cycling to kayaking, horse-riding, swimming or even roller skating) - we will be rewarding the team who have the best adventure using an array of sports.

There are also prizes for teams who complete the challenge in the quickest time and raise the most amount of money. A huge thank you to SunGod and Finisterre for their support on this.

Raising Money

The Ocean Sheroes are aiming to raise £60k for the Seabin Project, an inspiring organisation that provides practical and tangible solutions to reduce the amount of plastic in our oceans. The money raised will be used to set up new 'Seabins' in chosen ports and support the charity's education and research programmes.
