Team AFG smash fundraising target and complete one of their toughest challenges – Race the Sun 2019

September 1, 2019

We smashed our fundraising target – we’ll update you on exactly how much we raised but we have almost £1,500 on our Just Giving page and £600 pledged offline plus further pledges which would be sent after the event – watch this space! And THANK YOU all for your support.

Our official finishing time was 9 hours and 8 minutes. We were placed 11th overall out of 26 teams but were the only starting team with three team members so it is even more amazing to rank 11th.

Event Time Position
Cycle Stage 1 2hrs 42mins 19/26
Climb 3hrs 41mins 14/26
Cycle Stage 2 16mins 20/26
Canoe 37mins 26/26
Cycle Stage 3 1hr 52mins   1/26

Total 9hrs 8mins 11/26

And Team AFG were the fastest mixed male/female team in the race! Our closest competitor finished in 9hrs 57mins. We were also the fastest team on the Cycle Stage 3!

Although, as Greg mentioned our Canoeing wasn’t exactly up to scratch! Less power and more technique needed. We’ll sort that for next year! And last but not least, Abbie was the fastest woman in the race!

Well done Greg, Matt and Abbie – amazing achievement!
