Holly cow. These guys are totally nuts.
I love this kind of thing; Ben and Owen are driving counter clockwise around Africa – enough of a challenge on it’s own – but to make things interesting they’re also going to:
- To complete five marathons of at least 26 miles
- To climb five of the highest mountains in Africa
- To visit as many of the sites across Africa where the Victoria Cross has been won as possible (VC180 Challenge) and
- To hold a number of transport technology workshops based around the Trailblazer project
I’m already excited about tracking the Dakar (starting Jan 5th) but this now also gives me something else to watch in Africa – it also gives me something else to spend my money on – in fact perhaps you should consider donating to – it’s pretty damn impressive and they deserve to raise a stupid amount of money for their chosen charity.
Good luck guys!
