This is the eleventh year of this exciting triathlon-style adventure challenge. Teams of four will be attempting to complete cycling, climbing and canoeing sections of the challenge starting just before sunrise and aiming to finish before sunset – racing the sun! You will cycle approximately 50 miles (80km), hike to the summit of England’s second highest mountain – Helvellyn at 3,116ft (950m) and canoe a 3km course on Lake Thirlmere (Canoe experience is not essential).
A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to all the teams who took part in the 10th Race the Sun event on Saturday 1 September 2012. We saw some great examples of team spirit throughout the day! The fastest overall time for completing the challenge was 7 hours 30 minutes! Congratulations to Team RSG!!
