Royal Windsor Rollergirls love a bit of a challenge.
So, this Easter Bank Holiday, we will be taking part in a mammoth SKATE MARATHON that will take us from our regal town of Windsor to the vibrant City of London. It’s a formidable distance when relying on leg power alone, but it’s just a small journey in comparison to what RWRG have coming up!
To help raise funds for our trip to Florida for the Beach Brawl Tournament in May, we will be lacing up our skates and following the historic route of the first ever ‘polytechnic’ marathon – the first marathon with the now standard distance of 26 miles and 385 yards. Since this was recorded as starting at Windsor Castle, what could be a better event for a team from that Royal borough! Legs will burn and blisters are sure to be had, but it’s all for a good cause – getting us across the pond for our first ever game in the US of A! So please, support RWRG by donating anything you can, as roller derby is funded almost purely by the players.
