A glass of red wine in match day hospitality, Cheryl Cole and Chris Moyles can probably be blamed for a lot of things, but this time a conversation was had and an idea was born..Staff from Manchester City FC and Umbro have teamed up to tackle Mount Kilimanjaro in only seven days.
The gruelling journey begins in Manchester on Wednesday 11 April, and continues via Abu Dhabi and Nairobi before they reach their final destination in Tanzania where the real hard work begins. By 19 April the team will have climbed for seven days through rainforest, moorland, high desert and arctic wasteland, and reached heights of 5895m.
