VERTICAL MARATHON SATURDAY 24th APRIL 2010 10am-6pm
« on: February 26, 2010, 10:29:05 AM »
hi everyone, who's up for a challenge.

We are organising a Vertical Marathon on the 24th of April at surrey sports park :- instead of running 26 miles, we will be climbing it!

We will need to  climb a distance of 42,195 metres, which means each of the 50-plus climbers will have to climb an average of 70 routes of the total 3,516 twelve metre routes needed to complete the challenge.. Those taking part will be in teams of three, with one person climbing, one person belaying and one person counting the number of routes covered.

We raised 3,995 for the Mountain Rescue Council (MRC) and Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) in the Vertical Marathon 2007 and aim to raise even more in 2010 for the MRC.

UPDATE
on the day we will have 7 walls from 10am until 1.30pm, and 13 walls from 1.30pm until 6pm.
This means we'll need about 20 climbers for the morning and 40 climbers (everyone) for the afternoon.
So I hope to see everyone there from 1.30pm :)
If you have the time and are hardcore enough to be in the morning extreem group please put your name down for morning extreemness


So who's up for the challenge? we need at least 50 as its a long old way to climb, helpful volunteers on the day are also needed.

Wining doesn't always mean being first, winning means you're doing better than you've done before

I will be there, although am unfit to the point where I get out of breath walking up the hill to Wates.  :?
I'm not scared of falling at all; it's the moment you stop falling that you've really got to be concerned about.  :P

Bob is willing to be a helpful volunteer, but can't really take part as he is involved in losts of charity work this year and rinsing everyone of their money already
