Brave 100km Team Walk

Over the late May Bank Holiday, Daniel Pollard, Realty’s MD, took part in an epic challenge to raise money for Alzheimer’s.¬† The challenge was to walk 100km non-stop from central London to Brighton.¬† Daniel joined other team members from Adiuvo (who provide Realty’s out of hours services) and Earl Kendrick (who assist Realty with major works projects).¬† The walk started at 9am on the Saturday morning in Richmond Park and finishing times for the group ranged from 26 to 28 and a half hours, crossing the line at lunch time on Sunday.¬† Daniel finished in a very respectable 598th place ahead of the majority of participants.

Colin Stokes of Adiuvo commented:

“We battled through the high temperatures, the rain, the electrical storms, ankle deep mud, overgrown narrow paths, insect bites, dehydration, heat exhaustion, too many styles and a heart breaking climb over the south Downs at around 90k”

The team tweeted:

“Most of us managed to hobble over the finish line with approximately 20 blisters or more between us.¬† It was a hell of a challenge but we kind of loved it.¬† Next on the list is the 106km Isle of Wight Challenge next year”

All together 2,000 adventurers Walked, Jogged, and Ran from capital to coast.¬† In it’s 7th year ¬†– the London 2 Brighton Challenge has raised nearly ¬£1 million for the fantastic charity partners.¬† Daniel’s team have raised ¬£5,500 so far but the total is still rising.
