Dads Take on the #BikeBoatBoot Challenge
To cycle, hike and row the length of Wales, starting at the top of North Wales (potentially at Tŷ Gobaith in Conwy) and finishing in Tŷ Hafan in South Glamorgan in just four-days.
The planned route from North to South Wales takes the team along off-road cycle paths, mountain hiking trails, and kayaking along the whole length of Lake Bala. The estimated distance is over 200 miles, with the team climbing nearly 18,000 feet.
This is an ultimate and very unique Welsh Triathlon.
The 2024 challenge follows previous challenges. In 2018, the team took on the 5in55, walking all the five mountains of the National and Welsh 3-Peaks in just 52 hours. In recognition of the achievement, the team were crowned the Just Giving Team Fundraisers of the Year. In 2022, in a pandemic delayed challenge, the team took on the 10nTaff, climbing the five highest mountains in North Wales, then the five highest mountains in South Wales, before cycling, off-road, from Brecon to Cardiff. The 10nTaff was completed in just over 55 hours.
The 2024 challenge is tougher and longer than any previous challenge.
