Transcontinental Race No. 5

My page:

Once I've again been offered a place in the Transcontinental Race. This is a really interesting route this year, starting again in Geraardsbergen, taking a very different route than in recent years and finishing in Meteora, Greece. This years checkpoints are:

  • CP1 Germany and Castle Lichtenstein
  • CP2 Monte Grappa in Italy
  • CP3 The High Tatras mountains in Slovakia, exact location TBC
  • CP4 The Transfaragasan Highway in Romania, 
  • Finish Meteora in Greece. 

It will be a longer race this year, at around 4,000 kilometers, however it should be much flatter than 2016's race, but still likely to be in the region on 35,000 metres of climbing. You can find out all about last years race and follow my training for this epic adventure on my blog - 

I'm once again using this perfect oppourtunity to raise some money and awareness for the charity Action For Kids. Action For Kids has been helping transform the lives of young people with physical and learning disabilities, across the country, since 1991, through the provision of mobility equipment, learning, training and support. 

This is a fantastic charity, and your donation can make a big difference!

Thank you!
