As we look ahead to the New Year, 2023 will see two groups of supporters taking on mammoth challenges in support of Celtic FC Foundation, with the Road to Seville group undertaking a Cycle from Glasgow in May and the Wander Bhoys setting off on a Trek of Machu Picchu in April.
And there’s still time to join either of these wonderful supporter-led fundraising events.
The Road to Seville Cycle will mark the 20th anniversary of the fantastic achievements of Celtic’s 2002/03 squad, culminating in the UEFA Cup final in Seville. From Celtic Park to Seville, the group will cycle more than 1,000 miles over approximately two weeks, arriving at Estadio Olímpico de Sevilla, ahead of the anniversary on Sunday, May 21, 2023.
The same group originally followed the path of the most successful Celtic squad in history, by taking part in the Road to Lisbon Cycle back in 2017, raising an astonishing total in the region of £80K, which supported a number of charities including Celtic FC Foundation.
The group plan to meet at Celtic Park on Saturday, May 6, 2023 where they will set off for Cairnryan, then board the ferry to Belfast. Cycling through Ireland, the group will be taking in some key points of interest before ending their Ireland leg in Rosslare. Here, they will then board their next ferry to Bilbao in northern Spain before finally cycling on to Seville.
Full details, including cost and itinerary, as well as information on how to join the group can be found via their website: Road to Seville 23
The Wander Bhoys Machu Picchu Trek will see an adventurous group of supporters taking on an incredible 45km Trek of the beautiful and historic Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru over four days. Leaving from Glasgow on Tuesday, April 11, 2023, the trip will comprise of ten days in Peru, allowing time to acclimatise to the high altitude prior to the Trek, as well as a short period afterwards to relax and enjoy the wonderful city of Cusco, before returning to Glasgow on Saturday, April 22, 2023.
The group had originally planned to trek the Great Wall of China but have now opted to take on the Inca Trail instead.
Back in February 2019, The Wander Bhoys had also scaled the world’s highest walkable mountain – Mount Kilimanjaro – in support of Celtic FC Foundation, raising an incredible total in the region of £50K.
