Introducing … The Horizon Roof Top Tent
195 miles, 3 days, 6 sore legs & 3 sore bottoms for Pompey in the Community to raise funds for two new pedal wheelchair carriers.
The 3,000 nautical-mile race began from the inspiring thoughts and plans that Sir Chay Blyth had whilst he was rowing the Atlantic Ocean in 1966 with Jon Ridgeway. It was 92 days of battle against hurricanes, 50ft waves and a near starvation diet. It's no surprise then that more people have been into space, or climbed Everest than have rowed the Atlantic. It takes a certain kind of person to keep going when faced with blisters, salt rash, sharks and sleep deprivation.
Festival Catch Ups: SWEAT x Canoe Lake Lesiure
Three staff from Pompey in the Community, the charitable foundation of Portsmouth FC, are looking to further support their fantastic disability & community cycling scheme thanks to the support of Larcomes Solicitors.
The Pompey in the Community disability cycling programme, Wheels for All has this year allowed over 200 people with multiple needs and disabilities to get active, get fit and experience the thrill of cycling.

Festival Catch Ups: Race Time
Pompey in the Community won the EFL Checkatrade Community Club of the Year Award for 2016/17 and works with thousands of children and adults in the Portsmouth and surrounding areas every week. Whether it’s the 10 miles, the 5k, 2.5k or 1.5k, it would be fantastic to see as many adults and youngsters as possible doing the run in a Pompey in the Community running top!
One of the most memorable images from the 2017 Fitness Festival was the huge inflatable Santa that took centre stage on Castle Field. "Why?" was the one question most asked on the day. Well, it was a nod to the Santa Fun Run which celebrates its 10th birthday on Sunday 3rd December. Four months on from the 2017 Fitness Festival, here's a run down of Believe and Achieve events you can still get involved with this year!
