On Saturday March 21 a team of Bath residents will be attempting to set a new 24-hour Ski-Erg record.

All donations will go to support the work of Bath Rugby Foundation.

The team of ten is made up from clients of a local gym, Get Fit in Bath, where a range of abilities and ages have been put together to beat the current record of 369,343 metres.

The team’s ages range from 17 to 51 years old and for the last four months they have all been training with weights and the Concept2 Ski-Erg machine up to five times a week to be able to cope with the physical and mental exhaustion this challenge presents.

The challenge will begin on March 21 at 9am at Get Fit in Bath and will run until 9am on March the 22.

The team will be working in shift patterns which sees each team of 5 completing a half hour shift before handing over to the second team to continue the pacing needed to beat this record.

The team would love your support on the day to keep them motivated (especially in the early hours of March 22!) and any donation, no matter how big or small, will not only change the lives of under privileged youngsters in Bath, it will also spur this team on to beat this World Record.
