The 666 Challenge is in essence 6 Ironman Triathlons, travelling through 6 Counties all in 6 days. In other words, we will be doing a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride and a marathon every day for 6 days straight! We will be starting the event on Sunday the 23rd of May 2021 in Cornwall travelling through the counites of Devon/Somerset/Dorset/Wiltshire and finishing at the charity’s HQ in Andover on Friday the 28th.
On the 28th we will be encouraging Andover locals to run as much or as little of the final marathon with us, not only to give us a morale boost after a gruelling 6 days but to raise a small amount extra for the foundation. (More details of this tbc nearer the time)
The team of myself Matt and Jon are hoping to raise £10,000 for The Abel foundation. It’s such an amazing cause and the work they are doing for the families and sufferers of Mitochondrial disease is really making a difference and truly inspiring. Their aim is to create a support centre and we are hoping our fundraising will help them achieve this dream. More information about the foundation can be found at www.theabelfoundation.org.uk
