and now for something completely different.....

This weekend I am undertaking a Coast to Coast Challenge event for Charity over 3 days. Should be fun!

The format is as follows:

Sunday 17 May Hull – Salterforth, East Lancs
100 mile roadbike ride

Monday 18 May Salterforth – Wigan
46 mile kayak along Leeds Liverpool Canal

Tuesday 19 May Wigan – Maghull
24 mile mountainbike (on Canal) followed immediately by:
Maghull - Liverpool, Albert Dock
13 mile (half marathon) run

The chosen charities are:

Army Benevolent Fund
Great Ormond St Children’s Hospital
St Joseph’s Parkhill (my children's school)

It has been organized by one of the parents at the school, and there is a team of 4 of us, with Landrover support from a further lucky soul. We have been supported by British Cycling and will be wearing full GB kit (I kid you not!) and using nutritional products from Science in Sport.

There is an official send off with press coverage from the school Summer Fair on Saturday and the school children are going down to the canal on Monday to watch us paddle past at 4 different locations.

Follow us live in the run up and from the course on with pics and updates as we go along.

Blog updates later when the dust has settled.
