MegaHike 2012 – Winning Team – Neverest!

What is the MEGAHIKE Challenge? Its an endurance challenge, teams of 4 trekkers set off at day break ( 4.30am) and  have 24 hours to complete the 50 mile route. But to beat MEGAHIKE teams need to beat the sun and complete the 50 mile route before the sun sets (17 – 18 hours).

This monster hike is set in the heart of the Pennines starting and finishing from Hollingworth Lake in Littleborough. MEGAHIKE is one of the toughest team challenges physically and mentally as they trek along sections of the ‘backbone’ of England, the Pennine Way. The teams climb 7000ft to complete the 5o miles.

MEGAHIKE, raisesl funds for MedEquip4Kids, the North of England’s leading charity that supports children in and out of hospital. Medequip4kids provide sick and injured children with the best medical and play equipment.

Congratulations to the winning team Neverest who completed the course in 17 hours and were the only team to beat the sun!. A great achievement in wet conditions, they came home 60 mins ahead of the 2nd placed team. Through the challenge they were using the Herbalife24Prolong isotonic and carbohydrate endurance drink to sustain their energy levels. Hydration with electrolytes and calories are key during such an endurance event. Team Neverest raised over £1800 for MedEquip4Kids. – The Endurance Team Challenge including  photos of the event on facebook.
