50 Snails in One Day
We’ve been challenging people to sign up for our Snailway Weekend Challenge and visit all 50 giant Snails in one weekend, but some daring Snail Seekers have been challenging themselves to see all 50 in just one day!
One of the first to do this was local journalist Daniel Green, who successfully visited every Snail in one day whilst live tweeting the whole experience!
We loved seeing all of Daniel’s ‘Snailfies’ come through as he visited each Snail and tweeted about his progress. He even found time to pop into a Martlets charity shop and buy some Snailspace merchandise to commemorate his achievement.
Last week another Martlets supporter, Bobby McGarrigle, got in touch on social media to let us know he was planning to walk the entire Snailway in one day. Bobby also shared his progress with us by tweeting throughout his challenge. He had a little bit of trouble getting to Inca Snail at the Royal Pavilion because the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were in the area at the same time! You can read more about the Royal visit HERE
Daniel and Bobby’s SNAILtastic challenges were even more impressive as they had to travel all the way to London to find our tourist Snail ‘A Spin Around Brighton’ who has been living at London Victoria since the start of the art trail.
The challenge itself took around 12 hours from start to finish. We think they must have been pretty Snailed out by the end of the day!
Sign Up For Your Own Challenge
If you’d like to take part in your own challenge, you can sign up to our Snailway Weekend Challenge HERE but don’t worry, we’re not expecting you to move so fast! You can #BeMoreSnail by walking, cycling, or skating, along the Snailway over the course of a whole weekend!
Snail Seekers who register for our challenge will receive a free fundraising pack and loads of fun ideas to help you reach your fundraising target. Not to mention an exclusive Snailspace medal on completion! All funds from the challenge go towards supporting Martlets in our mission to help people affected by terminal illness in Brighton & Hove and neighbouring areas. You can find out more about the work that Martlets do HERE.
