Myself and 5 other members of our practice are taking part in the
Talybont Challenge. This is an event to raise funds for the Guide Dogs
for the Blind Association.

http://www.guidedogs.org.uk/index.php?id=1763

For the event we have to :-

  1. Climb a Welsh mountain (10km)
  2. Cycle through the Talybont forest (17km)
  3. Kayak across Talybont reservoir (4km)

It may not sound a lot but it's got to be done in 10 hours and we're
not the fittest bunch in the world. But with some determination we will
manage this.

If you would like to sponsor me please reply in this thread and I can tell you how to send some sponsorship money.

Hi Mate,

I did this a few years ago, if it's the same on, does it include a tandem in the cycle part?

We did it round the Brecon Beacons though.

What a laugh we all had, I got chosen to go on the tamdem with the blind (prob not politically correct[:$]) guy on the rear, found it to dangerous with him up front[:O][^o)]. We managed to raise about £4k, which wasn't a great deal but £4k more to the charity.

Anyway put me down for £20

Good luck [Y]

Hi,

I'm doing the Coniston version of this Challenge for Guide Dogs for the Blind as part of a team from a Vets surgery who I do IT Support for we have to do similar:

  • Walk up 'The Old man of Coniston' hill / (mountian?)
  • Cycle 20km through Coniston forest
  • Canoe 5km on Lake Coniston

again, all within 10 hours, and finish as a team of 6, keeping within 100 m of each other for the entire event.

Any sponsorship most welcom for the Guide Dogs Association.

Al

There's no tandem that I know of but I guess we'll find out when we get there. Thanks for your support.

I see, hijack my thread why don't you!!! [;)] Seriously though I'd
suggest that if you want to get some sponsorship set up a new thread so
people can reply more easily to you.

Sorry to hear that John, really sad but she was ancient so I guess it won't have come as a surprise to you.

On
a lighter note thankyou for sponsoring us on this event. It takes place
late in September so I'll sort it out then if that's ok.
