The group of amateur cyclists, between running and walking, covered about 60,000 kilometers in just 12 days. Due to the pandemic, this year’s edition of the event has taken place in “virtual mode”, where people from many parts of the world race alone or in small groups with time and distance counted.

The wind speed, which was receiving “only” 40 participants, reached 260 in this year’s edition, thanks to the possibility of participation from a distance. Applicants are from countries such as Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and USA.

The money raised by Heavy Metal Truants, set up by Iron Maiden Director Rod Smallwood, benefits Save The Children, Nordoff Robbins, Childline/NSPCC and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
