Saracens - Foundation Newsletter: Events Summer Update

Round the Island

Our Saracens Sport Foundation sailors have returned from a fantastic weekend of sailing around the Isle of Wight in the Round the Island Race.

This famous race attracts over 16000 sailors from all over the world and despite being largely inexperienced each of the Sport Foundation teams made it home in under 8 hours.

In taking on this huge challenge the teams have collectively sailed over 1,000 nautical miles and raised nearly £12,000!

Three Peaks

The Three Peaks Challenge is an attempt to climb the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales in 'one go'. These peaks are Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England, and Snowdon in Wales. This is a tough event and people participating should have the necessary fitness and also be prepared to do without sleep! We aim to complete the event in 24 hours - To do this we need to complete Ben Nevis in 5 hours, Scafell Pike in 4 hours and Snowdon in 4 hours, however this will depend upon the speed of the group. The course is guided by qualified mountain leaders and our driver will be with you all of the way! If you are interested in this event please contact the Fundraising Team.

Coast to Coast

Be inspired by some of the most dramatic scenery England has to offer on this classic bike ride from west to east. Departing from the coast of West Cumbria, this challenging itinerary stretches for 140 miles until reaching the North Sea. The picturesque route crosses the northern edge of the Lake District, then climbs into the dramatic landscapes of the northern Pennines. Following the ancient fringes of Hadrian’s Wall, it then heads down to the coastline of Whitley Bay. Please contact the fundraising team for more information.
