A star Cumbrian chef and his team have clocked up an incredible 1,768 miles in a challenge supporting the hospitality industry.
Lake District chef Simon Rogan and 35 members of staff from his UK restaurant teams completed the 4x4x48 Challenge, also known as the ‘Goggins Challenge’.
The team kicked off their ‘Goggins’ attempt at 8am on Friday, March 12. Each individual then ran four miles, every four hours for 48 hours, before finishing at 8am on Sunday.
For our industry!!!! We are running 4 miles, every 4 hours for 48 hours for @hospitalityaction

During the challenge, the team clocked up an impressive 1,768 miles (2781 km) between them and thanks to the generosity of their supporters the team have raised £5,511, which will help fund the invaluable work of Hospitality Action.
Simon Rogan said: “I’m really proud of every single member of the team who got stuck into this gruelling challenge. I’d also like to say how much we appreciate everyone who has generously supported us and helped raise such a significant amount for Hospitality Action.
“I think I can safely say that we’ve all been pushed mentally and physically and now need a bit of a rest before we contemplate next year’s ‘Goggins Challenge’.”
