2018 Events

Here is a list of all of our 2018 Events, culminating in the 2019 Husky Adventure.

 

March 17th & 18th I’ll be doing 2 Duathlons in 2 days. The Clumber Park Duathlon on the Saturday, then the Windsor Duathlon on the Sunday. A total of 30km running and 80km on the bike. If you’re unsure of what a Duathlon is, it’s a run followed by a bike then another run! I’ve done them before so I’m hoping for decent times.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to poor weather conditions, the Clumber Park Duathlon has now been postponed by the organisers. Read more about it all here.

May the 5th  This is the date for the rescheduled Clumber Park Duathlon. This duathlon will involve a 10K run, a 40K bike and a final 5K run. COMPLETED!

May the 13th  It’s more running! The Holymoorside 10k to be exact. If you don’t know this race then lets just say it’s all downhill after the first 5km….literally! COMPLETED!

May the 20th It’s the Peak Pioneer in Derbyshire, covering 115km on a mountain bike starting at Bakewell and heading off in a big loop back there!

June the 3rd It’s the Tour Of Cambridge where it’s the Gran Fondo Sportive on the Sunday covering 127kms on road bikes around Cambridgeshire.

July the 22nd I’ll be pedaling around the “Epic” circuit of the Nottinghamshire Wheeler, this is 162km on road bikes starting at Southwell racecourse.

October the 12th   Something a bit different. I’m holding a James Bond Themed Charity Ball at Shottle Hall near Belper in Derbyshire. For full details click here 

October the 20th Finds us heading down to Windsor for the other re-arranged duathlons. This one is the Windsor Autumn duathlon run by F3 Events

In 2019…

When 2019 arrives it’s time for the big one and also something pretty damn cool. I will be dog sledding with Huskys across Lapland. This is happening from 22nd – 29th March 2019 and involves sledding with my own team of Huskys 250kms across Norway and finishing up in Sweden at the Ice Hotel. I’ll have to make sure the dogs are fed & watered along the way and it’ll be all self sufficient, living in tents carried with us on the Sleds.

The trip itself I’m self funding (£2k) so the Charity isn’t paying for me to have a “jolly”. That means everything you donate throughout the run up to this goes to help veterans with mental health issues from all 3 services.

Although this final challenge seems a long way off, I need your help raising money for Combat Stress. It’s something that has affected a few people around me. I’m sure that my ex Military friends will feel this is a great cause to support. I’m going to be doing the events listed above in the time leading up to the Husky sledding.

If you can give anything at all that would really be appreciated and don’t forget to tick gift aid too.
