The Chinese New Year of 2019 falls on February 5th (Tuesday), and the festival will last to February 19th, about 15 days in total. 2019 is a Year of the Pig according to Chinese zodiac.
And since the number 8 is regarded as one of the luckiest numbers in China, said to have an auspicious meaning, it seems right that we created a challenge specifically to celebrate Chinese New Year and make it a distance of 8. You choose the metric of miles or km.

The Lluest Horse and Pony Trust will be 34 years old in 2019, during this time it has found new approved loan homes for over 300 horses and ponies.
The Trust owns over 160 equines with up to 25 residents cared for on the farm at any one time. Lluest meaning haven in Welsh, was founded by the remarkable late Ginny Hajdukiewicz who sadly passed away at the young age of 38 leaving the trust as her legacy. Nestling against the Black Mountain in the beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside, the trust is heavily dependent upon voluntary donations and fund raising activities.
