THIS IS EPIC
This year the Guernsey Athletics Club is putting on this event to raise funds in aid of This Is EPIC – http://thisisepic.org.uk/
2 Guernsey Athletics Club supporters, Philip Smith (a founder of This Is Epic) and Warren Mauger, will be aiming to complete 7 Ironman triathlons in 7 days (a.k.a. “7in7 EPIC Challenge”) in the week of 10-16 July . An Ironman Triathlon consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile marathon to finish off and they are anticipating that they will complete each Ironman Triathlon in 16 hours.
Please help us support this very worthy (and honestly quite crazy) Challenge.
This Is EPIC helps people overcome poverty in a sustainable way through Village Savings and Loans groups. Each group, of around 30 people, meet weekly to save and loan money in an accountable environment with group members focussing on starting sustainable income generating activities which have a positive impact on individuals, families and whole communities. The projects focus on providing a help up rather than a handout and since starting in 2014 the charity has had a positive impact on over 6,000 people.
