The Longest Day will be long, whatever challenge you decide to take on, be it 36, 54 or 72 holes! You could be walking between 20-40 kilometers - the latter being almost a marathon! So try to get some exercise in beforehand to make sure you’re fighting fit. It also helps to practice playing multiple rounds in the lead-up to the event, with the aim of completing a few rounds in one go. For the day of the challenge, recruit helpers to bring you snacks and water, or a caddy for one of the rounds. Every little bit helps.
From a fundraising perspective, don’t forget to keep sharing your fundraising page. A friendly reminder never hurts and people can donate anytime until 31 January 2021.
