Pete’s Ultimate Endurance Challenges
At the beginning of the year I received the news that a close family member has been diagnosed with cancer. It has been a difficult and challenging time for everyone impacted.
I’m extremely inspired by this particular individual’s positivity, bravery and inner strength as they begin to tackle it head on. I plan to follow on from this example and channel my strength into fundraising for Macmillan Jersey.
Many are impacted by a cancer diagnosis, and I greatly admire and appreciate the service that Macmillan Jersey provides to patients and family members. The service they offer is truly invaluable, and absolutely sums up why I want to fundraise for them.
I plan to do this by competing in several endurance events in 2018.
To get started I will be traveling to Swedish Lapland at the end of February, attempting to run 230km across one of Europe’s last remaining wilderness and the heartland of the indigenous Sámi people. Temperatures are expected to be as low as -20c, and the days will be very short.
Later in April, I have set myself a challenge of a solo rowathon attempt, which will be a distance of 30,000m, the equivalent of Sark to Jersey. This far exceeds any rowing distance I have completed to date.
In August the challenge is back to running with a 140 mile non-stop foot race from Whitehaven to Tynemouth (in the UK). This will be a tough one, with a 38-hour cut off.
If the body holds together, I may just attempt one or two more…
