End to End Extreme – Steve Prescott Foundation

By

End to End Extreme Challenge - Steve Prescott FoundationHi, it’s Ian here, Neil’s brother. I thought i’d give a quick update on how Neil’s getting on in his latest challenge raising money for the Steve Prescott Foundation, the End to End Extreme Challenge.

Last Saturday morning (2nd June 2011), all the guys set off from Lands End on a 1024 mile cycle ride to John O’Groats. On route they planned to climb Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis.

I don’t think any of them realised exactly what it was they’d took on. This is a MASSIVE challenge to even the most keenest of cycling enthusiast and they had to complete the challenge in 9 days!

To sponsor Neil in this monumental challenge, and help him hit his £1,000 target please click the following link….

As of writing this Neil’s 54% of target, let’s see if we can give a big push towards that magical £1,000

I spoke to Neil last night (8th June) after they’d just rode 40 miles from Lancaster to Scafell Pike in the Lake District, climbed Scafell Pike, which took them around 6 hours 40mins and then rode another 25 miles in terrential rain to Penrith where they stayed the night.

This took them to around 590 miles so far PLUS Snowdon and Scafell Pike in the bag.

This morning they had another 140 miles to ride to Dumbarton before they ride up to Fort William tomorrow to take on Ben Nevis.

This has been a huge effort so far by all the guys involved and they’ve raised thousands of pounds so far for the Steve Prescott Foundation.

Steve  himself is one amazing guy! 4 years ago he was given only months to live, but Steve wasn’t having that and proceeded to take on bigger and bigger challenges each year to raise money for The Christie in Manchester and Try Assist. Last year in 2010 Steve and his pals ran 4 marathons in 4 days and was also rightfully awarded an MBE for his services to charity.

Steve is a real inspiration and a true warrior. And that goes for all the guys who’ve taken part in the challenges with Steve, as I’m sure they’d of been 10 times more difficult without them.

I’ll hopefully be speaking to Neil tonight for another update so I’ll post here and let you know how they’re getting on.

Don’t forget, if you can spare a couple of pounds and help Neil reach his target of £1,000 I’m sure it would help numb the pain of them last few hundred miles, oh and Ben Nevis 🙂

This is fantastic that they did it in 9days! Was this off road or on roads may I ask? My friends did a similar ride for charity and achieved there goal in 14days off road. This was the record last year. I heard of someone beating in by a country mile I was wondering is this the team. Thanks
