Each month we’re choosing a different tree to represent our Challenge races. To kick off, we’ve chosen the Willow for a darn good reason.
It’s been a tough few months for so many people. Lockdown in most countries around the world, concerns about loved ones and finances, not to mention the complete change in lifestyle, has left many feeling weary. The June Willow Challenge, should you choose to accept, is all about regrowth.
Willows are renowned for regrowing when cut back, often flourishing several feet in one season.
You know what else? They have the ability to grow from a healthy branch pushed into the soil even when upside down! (Who hasn’t felt like they’ve been topsy-turvy right now?!).
They have come to symbolise renewal, growth, vitality and immortality across the world. We couldn’t think of a better tree to start our monthly challenge races. Celebrate your own tenacity and revival from the pandemic and earn your medal.
