To Summit Up

The Haute Pyrenees done, and it took me 29:31:30 to complete 7 stages across the high mountains
from Barcelona to Biarritz.

The race in numbers:

• Total distance: 778km
• Cols & Ascents: 21
• Total Ascent: 18,300m
• Total Descent: 16,700m
• 5 Classic stages + 1 Marathon stage + 1 Individual Time Trial
• Highest col: Tourmalet 2117m
• Marathon stage (stage
6): 150km, 4 cols, 3350m of climbing .

Of course the most important aspect was raising money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research in memory of my much loved and missed mum.

To date the sum total stands at£1768 and I have not looked to see what is in the colllection tin at The Oak – I want to say a really big thank you to all those who have donated so far – you know who you are and it
means a great deal to me. If you have not donated yet it is not too late – you can either leave something in the tin at the pub or donate online at:

Let’s make it £2000 total!




First things first, a huge well done on completing the event. An extraordinary challenge and a real achievement that you should feel really proud of.

Secondly, thank you so much for raising money for us. As a blood cancer patient now in full remission as a direct result of the research that you're helping us to fund I can tell you that you are making a real difference to the lives of blood cancer patients. Keep up the good work!

Good luck with the remainder of your fundraising and all the best in the future - do you have another challenge lined up?
