31 Oct Training on the Brecon Beacons
In November 2013, Charlie will be travelling to Nepal in order to commence a 3 week acclimatisation trek to Everest Base Camp area ahead of completing a 26.2 mile marathon on Mount Everest.
Charlie is undertaking this challenge to raise money and support for two charities, Women’s Aid and the Everest Marathon Fund – two great charities, both with the aim of helping others in need. None of the money raised will go towards paying for the expedition.
Women’s aid supports women and children fleeing domestic violence- did you know over two women per week are killed by current or ex-partners, and that one in four women in the UK will experience domestic violence in their lifetime?
The Everest Marathon Fund supports the Nepalese population in the Himalayas with basic things we would take for granted in the West.
This is Charlie’s training regime, which will prepare him for the tricky terrain, cold conditions and the demand on himself to complete the challenge. All support goes to Charlie’s chosen charities. Please head over to the Just Giving page if you would like to sponsor Charlie.
