We support people with Spinal Cord Injury to help them live full, independent lives

Story

Apparently, the challenge was set, as most things are over a couple of glasses of vino.. for an Aspire relay team to take part in the Enduroman Arch 2 Arc challenge. "A journey that connects two of the world's most beautiful cities, London and Paris, by running, swimming and cycling" so you can see Arch2Arc has a fair claim on the title of being the worlds ultimate team endurance challenge.

I will be part of a six man relay team who will run 87 miles from London Marble Arch to Dover; from there we will swim 22 miles in relay across the English Channel; on arrival in Calais, the third and final section of the challenge will consist of a mere 180-mile cycle ride to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

In terms of the challenge as always, the start will be determined by the best possible conditions forecast for the English Channel (swim section) of the challenge.

The challenge serves two purposes:

1) To fundraise for Aspire supporting the wonderful work they do in providing practical help to people who have been paralysed by spinal cord injury. supporting them from injury to independence.

2) Personally, to gain my cycle proficiency - this might give you a clue into which leg is the challenge for me!
