Business Guard sponsors Ultra 7 Continents

Business Guard have chosen to sponsor the Ultra 7 Continents challenge in 2018 by being a corporate sponsor to ultra runner Adrian Kent and will help support him through the 7 continents and 39,000 miles travelled in 2018.

The Challenge
The challenge set is fairly unique and includes adventure travel and also ultra running, Adrian will be running a 100 km ultra in each of the 7 continents within 1 year. This means 39,000 miles travelled around the globe travelling to each continent and then running for 100 kilometres through the most remote yet beautiful locations on the planet.

This will be a self supported trip with all proceeds going to the two charities above.

The locations he will be running 100 km in will be:

– Africa – Kenya Great Rift Valley

– North America – Cascade Mountains

– South America – Inca Trail

– Antarctica

– Europe – UTMB

– Asia – Nepal

– Australia – Greater Blue Mountains

The Charities
The charities involved are Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team who have already benefited from a £2000.00 donation from the challenge, and are in much need of fundraising after losing much of the equipment and vehicles after a fire at the base in November 2017.

The challenge is also searching for a second beneficiary in South Wales, possibly a young person with cancer that needs a little bit of extra support or a smaller charity helping people with cancer in South Wales.
