Getting ready to Cycle, Canoe & Hike around the lakes from Dawn to Dusk
Four members of the Team will be taking part in Race The Sun: Dawn to Dusk Triple Challenge 2022. On Saturday 10th September, Darren, Mark, Hugh & Elliott (who have named themselves as Inclines & Red Wines) will set off in the Lake District at sun rise to cycle 40 miles, canoe 2 miles and hike 11 miles around the picturesque Skiddaw Mountain at an altitude of 931m… aiming to get back before sun set.
This triathlon style adventure challenge is raising money for Action Medical Research which is the leading charity funding vital research to help defeat diseases within disabled babies, children & young people. For 70 years Action Medical Research have spent over £125m funding some remarkable breakthroughs enabling them to save and change lives. Let’s help them continue this incredible work!
The team are taking their training very seriously and will be sticking to an extensive training routine to ensure that they are ready to take on the challenge. Darren is working with P3FORM by Game Changer Performance and they have tailored a specific training plan to help with his long term goals of strength, conditioning and performance improvement specifically with his cycling events through Zwift and the Race the Sun Challenge.
“When I first heard about The Race The Sun Challenge, being the avid cyclist that I am, I knew it was definitely something I wanted to participate in. So, I persuaded the rest of the team to get on board and take on the challenge in aid of Action Medical Research. I knew that the event wasn’t going to be easy so I have ensured that I have a training plan in place so team Inclines & Red Wines are fully ready to take on the Lake District. I have regular contact and support from my PT Matt Jones to ensure I am training correctly, he advises me on my diet, sends me continuous support message, videos to help me improve the way I carry out the exercises he sets me.” – Darren Marsh
Elliott, Hugh & Mark will also be getting some practicing in by ensuring that they are biking & hiking their way through the next few months… perhaps the canoeing will have to be impromptu, 4 men & a canoe… what could go wrong?!
If you think they have got what it takes to accomplish the Race The Sun Challenge, please donate to Action Medical Research here. We would also be grateful if you could share this challenge around to raise awareness of this incredible charity.
Thank you in advance for your support & donations.
