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.
