How long does it take to do a mile of brush knees? Well, members of the London branch (Great Britain) decided to find out on Sunday when they joined more than 1 million people in the Sport Relief one-mile charity event. It ended up taking 2 hours, 48 minutes and 28 seconds to complete 1 mile of Tai Chi, which took the members past Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s residence in London. There were 23 members taking part from several branches across GB including London, Kent & Sussex, Cambridge and South Wales. As the runners sped past there were lots of cheers, photographs and light-hearted jokes about it taking until the following Sunday to finish. A pair of sumo wrestlers and some chickens even joined in for some moves. It was a beautiful sunny day in London and it was great to be a part of such a large event with 20,000 people participating. After a mile and nearly 3 hours of Taoist Tai Chi, the group went for a well-earned lunch in Chinatown.
