Whilst Altrincham Football Club are providing a free coach to take supporters to their final & crucial Vanarama National League game of the season at Braintree Town on Saturday, two fans will be cycling the 225 miles to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK & Altrincham Football Club Community Sports.
Dan Martell & Mike Ripley will set off very early on Friday morning & are aiming to complete 140 miles on Day 1, which is Mike’s 38th Birthday, with 85 miles to be completed on Saturday. The intrepid duo have targeted a 4pm arrival at the Avanti Stadium, with the match, which is being televised live on BT Sport 2, kicking off at 5.30pm.
En-route, they will passing through Stoke, Leicester, Market Harborough & Cambridge & they are also planning to fit in a 5 Kilometre park run on Saturday morning!
Prostate Cancer UK is a charity that both Dan & Mike are both keen to support & raise awareness for an illness that affects so many people.

To avoid relegation, Altrincham must beat Braintree, who need a point to qualify for the play-offs, whilst hoping that Halifax lose at home to Macclesfield & Guiseley do not beat Torquay.
