Time running out to enter inaugural Tri-Ultimate Guernsey challenge to raise funds for Hope for a Child

June 18th, 2013 by Hope for a Child

Organisers of what is being described as Guernsey’s ultimate charity challenge are calling for last minute entries to help them reach 100 participants.

The inaugural Tri-Ultimate Guernsey will raise funds for Hope for a Child and with just over a week to go until the event, organisers are urging anyone considering the 44.25 mile event to come forward.

“We are delighted with the response so far with 10 individual entries and more than 60 participants making up 13 teams,” said Emily Wild, Hope for a Child’s fundraising events manager.

“We were hoping to have 100 participants in the first year so we’re not too far off reaching that target which is fantastic,” she said.

“We obviously have some very fit people who are taking on the whole challenge as individuals and then the teams have different numbers taking part from three in the Ardel team up to eight in the Legis team so they are tailoring the challenge to suit their abilities which is exactly what we wanted.’

The event, which is sponsored by Next Generation IT, takes place on Sunday 30 June 2013 and will see individuals and teams swim two laps of Pembroke Bay, complete a circuit of the island by bicycle, and finish with a run or walk following the same route.

All of the money raised will be used by Hope for a Child to promote the welfare of children in Africa by empowering mothers to become financially secure.

Miss Emily Wild said that there are a couple of teams which are looking for people to complete all or part of the running or cycling part of challenge.

Anyone interested in taking part can contact Emily Wild by email to emily.wild @hopeforachild.org.uk or by telephone 01481 727547.

More information about the event can be found on the Tri-Ultimate Guernsey website.
