Heathrow's- Race the Plane

Together with Heathrow Airport Limited (and 28 of their partner companies and suppliers including Turner Townsend, Vandelande, and HSS) we organised and managed a live 7 hour indoor cycling challenge called ‘Race the Plane’ . Riders, in teams of 13, cycled in real time against a commercial airline flying from New York - JFK to London Heathrow Terminal 5. We overcame massive logistical hurdles and safety requirements due to setting up in T5 departures and  managed to beat the plane by 28 minutes and raised over £100k for Oxfam.

The Njinga Cycling team were fundamental to the success of the ‘Race the Plane’ charity event. The team are very professional, friendly and so passionate. Togo, Leigh and Josh in particular went above and beyond to make the event a success. I’d highly recommend Njinga to anyone thinking of running a cycling event and I’m genuinely looking forward to working with them again next year.

I just wanted to say a massive thanks to you all for all the hard work that went into organising the Race the Plane event yesterday. The day was a huge success and everyone from the BEUMER team had a fantastic day. It's great to have raised so much money for such a worthy cause and we're really glad to have had the opportunity to be a part of it. Roll on next year!

Dyer and Butler were so pleased to get involved in the Race the Plane event which was for a great cause and to achieve 2nd place made us very proud! We felt the entire day was organised really well, from the idea, to the structure of the day, as well as great facilities at the hotel and of course the bike set up in T5 and generally the enthusiasm that everyone had for the event, including organisers and riders. You have also keep us well informed leading up to and after the event which made it very smooth from our end. We are already excited about getting involved again next year!
