Malvern Hills Endurance Challenge- 24 Heures du Malvern
June 30th to July the 1st 2011
A team from Smiths News will be attempting a 24hr endurance challenge, walking 50miles (80km) across the Malvern Hills (6+ times!). The challenge includes day/night walking and the ascent/descent of 80 peaks (74 above 1,000ft). The total ascent is the equivalent of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro (and back down the same day!). Chris Moyles eat your heart out!
The length of the walk is the equivalent of walking from Swindon to Worcester or over one hundred thousand steps! The walk will burn off calories to the equivalent of 17 Sunday Roast Dinners or 58 pints of cider/lager!
Rebecca Boden, Tim Concannon, Carrie Davies, Simon Edwards, Pete Geoghegan, Neil Palmer, Luke Simons, Darren Spratt, Phil Williams
The team will also be ably supported by a number of Smiths News employees and friends with food, drink and encouragement at various points along the route (massages?)
The team will be raising money as part of Smiths News’s Community Week for Acorns Children’s Hospice. Acorns provide valuable care and support to the terminally ill and their families. They are a small Midlands based charity and every penny raised will go towards continuing their excellent work.
