PureGym Ambassador, Sir Chris Hoy, will be launching the Relay on Tuesday 18th June in Scotland, before joining the final stage of the Relay from Exeter to Plymouth on 25th June.

“Physical activity is proven to enhance and improve mental health with regular fitness seen as a vital prevention strategy. Much of our existence at Jordan has been to help encourage functional fitness, as a low cost yet high impact option, encouraging people from all walks of life to get involved in exercise. To now be able to support Pure Gym’s relay, with teamwork and fitness at the core of this challenge, is overwhelmingly relevant.”
Zak Pitt, Managing Director at Jordan Fitness continues:
“It has been a great opportunity to design the unique relay batons, which will travel the breadth of the UK, and shows the innovation inherent in our design team.”
