My story

[p]So this challenge is to help raise necessary funds for Children's Hospices Across Scotland and My Name'5 Doddie Foundation, here are some details about the challenge.[/p][p]The challenge is based on the124 number I used for a previous challenge that I did for CHAS at the end of 2018. The number 124 comes from the square root of amount of children born with life-shortening conditions between 2017 – 2020, the estimate is 15,404 that would be born with life-shortening conditions between those years. [/p][p]The challenge is to ascend 124,000 metres in 14 days, using an online virtual training application called Zwift. [/p][p]To put the 124,000 metres into context it means I will need to cover the height of Mount Everest 14 times which means that I will ascend Mount Everest (8,848 metres) every single day.[/p][p]This challenge will be fully on Zwift and using the climb called Alpe du Zwift which is based on the climb Alpe d'Huez in France. Alpe d'Huez was first used by Le Tour de France in 1952 and has been used a total of 30 times during the Tour de France. This challenge will cover approx 3x the elevation gain of the Tour de France, which is run over 23 days with 2 rest days.[/p][p]I will be using a Tacx Neo 2T and have my back up Tacx Neo smart trainers for this challenge.[/p][p]I have checked with the Hells 500 team and there has been no-one in the world that has done back-to-back days everesting before, there has been someone that has done an everest every week for 13 weeks.[/p][p]I am looking forward to this self imposed challenge and thank you for taking the time and showing interest in this and would very much appreciate any support that you are able to give.[/p]
