Winter sports charity challenges
Want to get out there and raise some serious money for charity? Great! There are numerous worthy causes and even more ways to fundraise on their behalf. Yes, even for those prone to sunburn. Seriously, winter sports challenges have never been more popular so wrap up and get going!
What sounds more inspiring than an epic trek? An epic trek in the cold and snow of course. Similar distances, much harder conditions and considerable risks all combine to raise the stakes considerably. However, the overwhelming sense of pride and achievement that comes with the completion of the course will see all previous concerns simply melt away.
For speed thrills, strap on the skis for an epic adventure. Alternatively, for the ultimate winter excursion, hop on a sled behind a team of huskies and hold on!
Whatever you choose to do, the right training and preparation is vital to the success of your mission. The cold makes everything that bit more complicated and a calm, poised mind is almost as important as a strong, healthy body when it comes to taking on Mother Nature at her harshest.
Having the right equipment is also of utmost importance. Obviously, nobody is going to rock up in the Arctic in shorts and flip flops, but at the same time it’s more than a case of wrapping up in a coat and scarf - much of the equipment required is highly technical and there's plenty of advice on buying or hiring kit with the challenge details.
