From 26-29th August, Team Berghaus Adventure will be racing against some of the UK’s top adventure racing teams and solos in the Adidas Terrex Coast to Coast.
The four day race will see Emma, Jack and David kayaking, running, biking and open water swimming their way in a self supported event from Whitehaven to Robin Hoods Bay. Not only will this be an opportunity for the team to pit themselves against the top UK teams, but Olympian Gold medalist James Cracknall, who will be racing with World Champion Adventure Racing Team, Adidas Terrex members Bruce Duncan and Nicola McLoud.
Racers will be carrying a satellite tracker to allow live updates of their progress throughout the event. If you would like to see how the team is doing you can go to:http://www.adidas-ar.com/2011/ for live updates throughout. Channel 4 will be following the event and the race is scheduled to be broadcast on television later in the year.
Emma, Jack and David have been busy making last minute preparations and training; Jack and David have been testing out boats and looking over the route, whereas Emma has been out in the alps climbing, running and cycling for her holiday during the daytime, and feverishly writing spreadsheets (much to her husband’s chagrin!) and kit lists in the evenings.
