Time is ticking by – The Epic Tri

April is getting very close now.  With Pancake Tuesday having just passed marking 40 days and nights to Easter.

This is a scary thought for myself, knowing that by the end of Easter Ant Emmet and myself will have run the Bob Graham, cycled from John O’Groats to Lands End, and then kayaked from Devizes to Westminster.  This doesn’t sound too bad, but we are cramming it all into the one week, well 6 ½ days actually.  This is each event, non stop back to back.

This is all part of The Epic Tri, a huge challenge that we have set ourselves in order to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK, a charity that is sadly very close to both of us.

Ant and I are both very keen adventure racers, and as such felt we couldn’t just do a normal 10km run, we thought something a bit bigger was in order, and you can’t get much bigger than this.  The 3 toughest endurance events in each discipline in the UK.

It is going to be very tough on both of us, both physically and mentally, but we know that at the end of it all, we can sit down and rest, safe in the knowledge that next week, although we may be a bit tired and sore, there is nothing wrong with us.  Thousands of cancer suffers can never do that, they can never turn off their pain and anguish and worry.

Please help us to raise as much money as we possibly can, hopefully you agree with us that this is a monumental undertaking and not your standard ask for sponsorship.

Regular updates will be going up on our event web page, and on both our twitter feeds
