They’ve done it! On Friday 13th June 2014 the Beeline Britain team completed the first ever straight-line journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
The Beeline Britain team, arrived at the UK mainland’s most northerly point after an epic voyage across the country. The team were delighted to receive a congratulatory phone call from His Royal Highness Prince Harry at John O’Groats.
The Beeline Britain team, which is supported by Prince Harry’s Endeavour Fund, have covered over 1,100kms from Land’s End since their departure on May 17th. They have kayaked, cycled, mountain biked and hiked their way across the UK, completing two record breaking sea crossings on route, including the longest open sea kayak crossing in UK waters; 34 hours of non-stop kayaking.
The record breaking team of four include Paralympian and double amputee Army veteran Nick Beighton; Tori James the first Welsh woman to summit Mount Everest; Ian O’Grady, RAF helicopter crewman and founder of the Beeline Britain Concept; and Adam Harmer, outdoor instructor and lecturer at Liverpool John Moores University.
All four have tackled the UK’s toughest terrain to raise money for BLESMA and they would appreciate any donation you might be able to make.
