Fundraising hero tackles not one but two of charity’s ultimate challenges – within a week!

A dedicated fundraiser from Ampthill, Bedfordshire, is tackling not one but two of Action Medical Research’s epic outdoor challenges – within a week of each other.

Adrian Wadsworth, 47, was first encouraged to sign up for the children’s charity’s Race the Sun Brecon Beacons on Saturday, 27 June, by team captain Jon Reep.

Along with Dave Wilson and Martin Cruise, they will join teams to cycle 45 miles, climb Pen y Fan (2,907ft) and canoe 3km across Pontsticill Reservoir, starting at sunrise and finishing by sunset - racing the sun!
