Dawn Meats – Rising to the “Asda Challenge”

on 25 June, 2014

On May 17th 2014, Dawn Meats entered two teams of four into the Asda Challenge event in aid of Tickled Pink Breast Cancer Care Campaign. 24 teams of four took part in one of the toughest challenges in the UK which elements of the race were based on the SAS selection course.
 
Dawn Devils: Marcus Sherreard, Kristian Gabrielsen, Renatas Ptytnikas and Robert Wilcox
Dawn Dynamos: Tim Higgins, David Shapland, Ceri Davies and David Angell
 
The challenge was one of the most gruelling charity team events Dawn Meats has ever entered. The race involved teams completing a 10 mile run across Pen-Y-Fan which is part of the Fan Dance route, followed by a 36 mile cycle which was split half way with a 1.5 mile canoe race across Llangors Lake.
 
However, as per Murphy’s Law, there was an unsuspected twist at the end of the race! Just when the teams thought they could keel over and breathe a sigh of relief having passed what they thought was the finish line… cue “The Sickener”. Teams had to each carry a 20kg sack of coal across a further 100 metres to the true finish line.
 
For those that were not too battered and bruised, well deserved prize giving and celebrations took place after the event in the Brecon Rugby Club where it was announced that, Dawn Devils came in 2nd place overall at a time of 05:28:45 and Dawn Dynamos came in 7th overall at a time of 06:25:03. Also worthy of a mention, Dawn Devils managed to pip all teams to the post on the 10 mile run leg of the race by coming in 1st place!
 
Congratulations to both teams on such a fantastic achievement and in aid of such a great cause!
