McFT were proud to field 2 teams for the final Wightlink Wight Challenge last weekend. McFT have support this great cause for the last 3 years and are sad to see this great event come to an end. Both teams were never there to win, but were there for the personal challenge that an 18 mile cross country cycle, a 2.5 mile canoe and an 8 mile run would pose, with minimum preparation.
For some members of the team the last time they saw a bike was doing their paper round many years previously…..
I am proud to report that both teams fully completed all 3 legs, with bodies intact, albeit a little less so than when they started out!
It was all in the name of raising funds and we were delighted to have raised £1000
Well done to all those that took part!
