Two extreme athletes are preparing themselves for one of the toughest challenges of their lives: over 1,000 miles of intense kayaking, hiking and biking, and all for a good cause. They are braving this feat in order to raise money for Cancer Research and they hope to be able to raise a whopping sum of £25,000.
They have chosen this long and agonizing course because, although it will be painful, cancer patients suffer much more, and unlike Bruce Duncan and Anthony Emmet, they cannot take a break from the physical strain that comes along with this disease that grips one’s body.
Their planned itinerary consists of a 65 mile run, 874 mile of bike riding and a canoe race followed by a kayak portage. In total they will be covering over 1,000 in fewer than 7 days. Such a plan can only be given one name: The Epic Tri.
Both athletes recognize the challenge they´re facing, but admit to being stubborn. Although this may seem fairly demanding, nor Bruce nor Anthony is a stranger to such physical challenges. Bruce has won three times over the Wenger Patagonian Expedition!
They will be crossing the Lake District´s mountains, John O´Groats to Lands End and they will move on to the Devizes, so if you´re in the area, come and cheer them on! They deserve it!
