"There Is No Such Thing As Insurmountable Odds."
LATEST - 30/06/2010 : We invite all competitors to download The 2010 Chara Challenge Entry Pack
which contains everything you`ll need including the confirmed route, sponsorship forms, etc.
Many thanks to all those who participated in The 2009 Chara Challenge. The event would not have occurred without you, the brave participants willing to accept the challenge and endure such pain!
We had a total of 47 teams take part, made up from 208 participants, ranging from 18 to (just short of) 70 years old!
43 of the 47 teams completed the 30 miles, with the winning team finishing in 8 hours and 22 minutes, and the final team finishing 2 hours and 33 minutes later.
A wealth of photos of the event is accessible on the official Chara Challenge group page on Facebook. To join us on Facebook (you´ll obviously need a FB account first), click on the link at the top of this page, then once the page has opened, simply click the "Join group" link below the photo, top right.
If anyone has any photos or video clips that you are willing to share with the Chara Challenge Trust for wider distribution, please either send them via email : firstname.lastname@example.org or, better still, post them directly yourselves on the Chara Challenge page on Facebook - it`s great to see the event through your eyes. Thank you so much in advance!
