On Sunday 29th March, HSX Antarctica will complete the 26.2 mile Clarendon Way marathon, etching a route between the cathedrals of Salisbury in the West and Winchester in the East. All funds raised from this extreme challenge will go to their chosen charity: the Motor Neurone Disease Association. Each dragging a tyre along the way, to simulate dragging a pulk across the ice as well as the difficulties that people with MND face on a daily basis, this is certainly going to be one hell of a challenge! None of the team have run a marathon before.
We hope you can come out and cheer us on along the route; the team are hoping (!) to reach Winchester Cathedral at 3pm and will be making much-needed pit stops at Middle Winterslow Scout hut, the villages of Broughton & King Sombourne and Farley Mount Country Park.

If you would like to sponsor the team, for this or any of their 2015 challenges then please go to: https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/Antarctica. The Motor Neurone Disease Association was established in 1979 and is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland that funds and promotes global research into Motor Neurone Disease, whilst supporting MND sufferers and their families.
Thank you for your support!
