The Great Barrow Challenge
I’ve been trying to think of a challenge to do this year. Shaun and I have considered cycling from Cornwall to Kent (getting the train down to Cornwall, then cycling back) or climbing some more mountains with one of our Three Peaks Challenge mates but we didn’t come to any decision yet.
Then I got an email telling me about The Great Barrow Challenge. I REALLY WANT TO DO THIS.
It’s a four day challenge taking place over 19 September to 22 September and you can choose between:
Or a combination of the above (eg run one day, cycle one day)
Then you choose your distance:
Walk – 6,10,15 or the full 26.2 miles per day
Run – 6,10,15 or the full 26.2 miles per day
Cycle – 30, 60 or the full 120 miles per day
The best thing about this is you can adapt it to whatever you fancy, i.e. you can walk on two days, run the next day and cycle the next day. Or you can do a marathon a day for four days, it’s up to you. Personally, I think I’d like to run the 6 mile route one day and cycle the 30 mile route on each of the other two days and maybe walk a marathon on another day, aarrgghh, too many decisions!)
This is so cool, I really want to do this – anyone else up for it?
