Adventure Racing World Championships

November 16, 2021

Julie (who works at The Chamwell Centre) and her husband Anton have just returned home after racing in the Adventure Racing World Championships in from Galicia, Spain. We are delighted that they managed to raise over £600 for Chamwell.

Without any assistance, only six hours sleep in five days (yes, truly!), and suffering extreme hypothermia and major blisters, Julie said, "however gruelling the race, there was always the opportunity to stop and make the fatigue, muscle pain, and cognitive difficulties fade away over time. Yet, if you are born or acquire a physical, neurological, or intellectual disability - every day is a major challenge. Adventure Racing is not everyone's cup of tea, however, it is how we can partner with the Chamwell Centre to raise both awareness and money for the members".

Despite everything thrown at them, Julie and Anton crossed the line beating over half the field of competitors. Next year their sights are set on the Expedition Africa in March 2022 and the World Championship in Paraguay later in 2022.

Julie and Anton are raising money for Chamwell Centre and we are delighted that they will continue to raise funds in 2022.  It's never too late to donate to Chamwell via their fundraising page www.antonandjulie.com or via this website.
