Day One Done and Dusted

Day One Done and Dusted

That’s day one done and dusted with Sip in fine spirits, faring well physically and mentally so far. In the past twenty four hours he has covered a distance of over 200 kilometres, both around the Sutton Bank in the day, and back at base through the night. He now transfers to road bike with another full day ahead on the saddle, no doubt a welcome change after the undulating trails of day one.

On Tuesday and into Wednesday, Sip will complete thirty kilometre loops on road bike, on a local route in and around Dishforth, with the support team in hot pursuit on shifts. It is expected that another 300 kilometers will be covered today, but you can keep updated with progress via our Just Giving account, where all the data is being synced and tracked, through the day and into the night. Aside from the physical aspects of the challenge, Sip is undertaking psychometric tests every six hours, ensuring his mental wellbeing. He is supported by a loyal team who accompany on shifts, increasing morale, offering encouragement and making sure that everything goes to plan.

In The Media

Monday marked our first live media interview, with BBC Radio York catching up with Sip during a comfort break within the first few hours of the challenge. You can listen to that interview here, and we thank the station and listeners for their time. Over the coming days, we welcome press and the media to make contact, spread the word and help us raise donations for a more than worthy cause.

We also thank Dragon’s Den investor, Sara Davies, for her lovely words of encouragement on Twitter, which can be seen here. Why not follow our channels on social media and check back tomorrow for an update from day two? Sip and the team will be forever thankful for your support. Watch video footage from day one of the challenge below, and help us to make a difference, however small the donation.

Day Three Ends on a High

Thursday 1st July 2021
Day three ended on a high today, quite literally, as Sip smashed another twenty four hour long challenge, this time climbing a wall in Newcastle city centre. In the past day, the wall has seen a total distance climbed of 40390 metres, the vast majority of that distance covered by Sip. It was fantastic for the team to meet so many people, and we thank everyone who stopped by for their time, generous donations and kind words of encouragement. It was also great to let people experience the wall ...
