AcclimatiseMe supports the Ultra6 challenge!   Leave a comment

AcclimatiseMe are proud to be supporting The Ultra6 World Record Challenge

Andy North, Ben Wood, Mick Bowden, Mike Senior and Dave Edwards will complete the 850 miles consisting of six marathons and over 600 cycling miles in under seven days thus creating a new world record. Each day we will be running a marathon distance of 26.2 miles followed by a further 100 miles cycling, a total of 15 hours on the move.

OUR GOAL
“Motivate & Inspire people to actively participate in sport, people of all ages to be fit and healthy in the great outdoors locally & across the UK”

This is a unique venture and we invite both members of the public and supporting businesses to take part in the challenge. We also welcome anyone to join the endeavour at any stage of the route either by bike, on foot, by skateboard, or even by tandem.

Each entrant will be able to drop in and out of the challenge at any stage of the event and in doing so they will be able to help and inspire the Ultra6 team to create the World Record.

The trekking entourage will also be joined for two days along the route by inspirational veteran Afghanistan soldier Andy Reid. Andy is a triple amputee who hopes to encourage people to take part and provide inspiration ‘to give you that extra 10% when you’re facing your challenges and hurdles in your daily life’.  www.andyreid.org

The World Record challenge has the full support & leadership of Andy Reid who was a Corporal with the 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment, whilst on patrol in Afghanistan, Andy stood on a pressure plate IED and as a result of the explosion, he lost both his legs one below and one above the knee and his right arm.  After only 2 weeks Andy astounded people with his recovery and positive attitude. The Soldiers’ charity fully supported Andy by providing floor lifts and ramps throughout his house to ensure he had full access at all times.

Cycling London to Bangladesh
“This June we’re setting off on a cycle expedition from London to Bangladesh and making sure we have safe drinking water is a major issue for much of the route. We looked at various solutions and the Water to Go bottles seemed like the best option all round. They’ll give us total piece of mind and mean we can get great tasting water from virtually any source. What’s also great is that we’ll be able to drink the water instantly rather than waiting for purification tablets which will be vital as we’ll need to be constantly hydrated.”

AcclimatiseMe founder receives royal recognition   Leave a comment

I was very honoured this week to be awarded the Yorkshire Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award, presented by Prince Andrew. Whilst I have never been in business to win awards or receive accolades, to receive recognition of this prestigious award was a genuine honour. I’m not so good at blowing my own trumpet, so here are some words about the event and why AcclimatiseMe won.

Chris with award

A recent University postgraduate has received a prestigious award from the Duke of York in recognition of his entrepreneurial skills.
Chris Hale, who founded AcclimatiseMe, an innovative altitude business whilst studying for an MA in Business Management, was a winner in the first ever Duke of York Entrepreneur Awards which were held on Tuesday 21 May.
The Awards acknowledged Yorkshire and the Humber’s finest student and graduate entrepreneurs and Chris was one of ten winners who represented each of the region’s universities. Yorkshire was specifically chosen for the launch of the Duke of York Young Entrepreneur Awards due to the strength of its local partnerships, as well as the region’s success in developing business start-up services and funding.
​Chris founded AcclimatiseMe whilst completing his MA in Business Management at Leeds Trinity University. The young entrepreneur has introduced cutting edge altitude training technology from New Zealand to the British market, which helps climbers to prepare for their summits, thrill seekers to conquer Kilimanjaro and elite sports professionals to improve their performance and speed up their rehab process. AcclimatiseMe continues to attract critical acclaim, with Chris currently in the running for a Shell LiveWIRE Grand Ideas Awards.

Thanks for reading, onwards and upwards for AcclimatiseMe!
Chris
