Help for Heroes recently ran their third training weekend for the upcoming Arch to Arc challenge, with around 30 wounded, injured and sick service person heading to Yorkshire for a weekend that was ‘by no means for the fainthearted’.

Around 30 participants had to complete over a mile in the pool, followed by a 15mile bike ride and 4×4 training on the running track. Following lunch there was a question and answer session about the challenge, and then back to the pool to complete a few more miles. Sunday did not see any change in tempo, another early 5.30am pool session followed by a cycle lesson and spinning session.

Help for Heroes is putting together a team to take on the challenge of running 87 miles from Marble Arch in London to the Dover coast, then swimming across the Channel, finishing with a 181 mile bike from Calaid to the Arc de Triomph in Paris. It has never been attempted by a disabled team before – something the charity is planning to rectify this September.
