In March 2012, Duncan Griggs and Marcus Judd are taking part in the Arctic Circle Race, which is held in Greenland.
The ACR cross country ski race is one of the top 10 most difficult endurance challenges in the World and they have been training for 5 months now, recently completed a roller ski around the Kielder Reservoir which was 26 miles in total.
The Arctic Circle Race is 100 miles over three days in freezing temperatures with daily ascents of at least 2000 feet and only one or two skiers form the UK attempt the challenge each year.
Marcus and Duncan are using the trip to raise money for the charity DebRA who support patients with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) and their carer’s.
Epidermolysis Bullosa is a terrible disease that causes the skin to blister and then shear off at the slightest friction. It affects individuals from birth, causing much pain and suffering, especially infants and children.
DebRA is a highly specialised charity that works with the NHS to tailor medical care specifically for EB patients.
It goes without saying that these two gentlemen are looking for your support in the form of sponsorship and any donation will be much appreciated.
Donations can be made via the Just Giving website
