Rachel and Sumo are competing in the Whitehorse Challenge - Running, Biking, AND raising $500 for local, regional, and national charities!

Canterbury

Rachel and Sumo are completing the Whitehorse Challenge, a teams challenge run as part of the Whitehorse Big Easy event. Teams have the dual challenge of splitting a 25km mountainbike and 18km mountain run with a fundraising challenge. Teams are required to raise $500 via this page, that will be distributed by the Waimate Rotary Club to local, regional, and national causes, including Kidscan, Centrecare, South Canterbury Hospice, Bushtown, and the Whitehorse Mountainbiking Club (for further track maintenance).

After losing their playground in the Porthills Rachel and Sumo have been looking for some great trails in different parts of the South Island (enter the Whitehorse!). Rachel has a history of hunting out unique running challenges, including a marathon along the Great Wall of China, and through a South African Game Park! She claims to be a plodder, hoping to finish with funds raised and a smile, but we’ll see what happens when the competition strikes. It sounds like Sumo has been whipped into the entry (the life of the engaged). He comes in with a history as a long time amateur, first time caller. He is mainly excited that no matter how slow he is uphill, at least he get to sit down!

Jump on board and support Rachel and Sumo, or head on over to www.whitehorsebigeasy.co.nz and enter your own team.
