The Hospitality Virtual 48hr Relay

Why we need your help


Only a Pavement Away in partnership with Harri and Milestone Recruitment is inviting colleagues, and friends from the hospitality sector to come together and join a friendly and possibly competitive, Virtual 48hr Relay, between Friday 2nd April (noon) until Sunday 4th April (noon).

The event has been organised to create positivity and team spirit not just for your own teams but for hospitality as a whole, we are one big team after all, and what better way to get our teams prepared to do team work once again as we open back up to our guests.

This year, OAPA wants to support 250 vulnerable and disadvantaged people into work in the hospitality industry.  Starting a new job can be daunting for a person who has been homeless or in prison and requires a significant amount of support to help with the adjustments of independent living as well as a new job. 

The funds raised from the challenge will be used to provide our members with additional financial support to overcome any barriers to employment such as short-term help with rent, travel costs or initial living expenses.

The Hospitality Virtual 48hr Relay is a team event and means participants running or walking in 1 hour time slots one after each other.

As this is a lockdown event, participants can choose to run or walk ‘virtually’ anywhere in this country or in the world. 

Team members can use treadmills and/or an outside location so long as they are following current and local Covid rules.  For safety we would only recommend using any outside destinations during the day – unless it is your garden!   

This is not a licensed event; This is designed to be a VIRTUAL, social, fun, inclusive event; all whilst following local Covid rules.

Each team member will need to record their mileage with their team captain who will complete a spreadsheet and send to the event organiser. Recording your mileage can be done through most fitness watches or phone apps such as Strava or Map my Run or Runkeeper. 

The first runner or walker sets off on Friday noon, each runner or walker runs or walks for 1 hour, once the 1 hr is completed the next runner or walker starts. The last runner or walker completing their 1 hr slot on the Sunday 12 noon.  You do not need to have someone running/walking at every time slot within the 48hrs, this is optional, but obviously the more slots filled will mean more milage being covered.

If you don’t have enough people to each fill the 48 hr 1 hr slots i.e. you only have a team of 20, why not join up with other hospitality businesses in your area to create a larger team or get in touch with the Event Organiser Milestone Recruitment and they will help in pairing your team up with another team to create a larger team! BUT remember 1 person can run more than 1 slot over the 3 days ie Friday 12pm, Saturday 12pm and Sunday 11am.

We would love you to join us for this virtual relay to see which team can achieve the most miles over the time period! And win the 1st prize of being the UKs 1st Hospitality Virtual Hospitality 48hr Relay Champions. Results will be announced via Social media on Monday 5th April.

THANK YOU for your team's efforts in supporting and raising funds for Only A Pavement Away!
