Boulders’ Sport Relief Challenge

For those of you that missed the Boulders’ staff struggling on the ski machine, tackling the rower, on a cycle session and climbing our limbs to jelly on Friday for Sport Relief, we thought we’d update you on our event and share some of our sweaty faced photos!

Our aim was to replicate Alex Jones’ Sport Relief Challenge and climb the height of Moonlight Buttress, located in Zion National Park, Utah, and then ski a mile, cycle a mile and row a mile each in between climbs.  On the night we had fantastic support from our youth climbing club, The Project, who were climbing machines and shot up and down the walls putting the staff to shame!  Our grand totals in the end were……

  • 21 complete climbs of Moonlight Buttress!
  • 18 miles cycled
  • 10 miles rowed
  • 7 miles skied

We’d like to say a huge thank you from the Boulders team to everyone that took part and supported us on the night, including our friends at E-VOLVE Fitness who very kindly (or not so kindly in the case of the ski machine!) donated the exercise machines to us for the evening.

Most importantly, we’d like to thank you for all the donations that have been made already!  We will be sending them to Sport Relief in the next couple of weeks so there’s still time to donate if you haven’t already done so.  You can do this by texting BLDS77 and the amount you would like to donate to 70070 or by visiting: www.justgiving.com/BouldersUK.

Just take a look at the difference your donations can make:

£1 could provide a hot meal for a child in the UK living in extreme poverty.

£5 could pay for a mosquito net to protect a mother and her baby in Africa from contracting malaria while they sleep.

£10 could enable an older person in the UK who just lost someone they love to attend a group activity.
