Ride Across Britain success for our Partners Prostate Cancer UK

7 October 2015


Congratulations to Dan and Mark for tackling the Scotland leg of the Deloitte Ride Across Britain between 10 – 13 September 2015. The ride involved 440 miles of cycling over four days, with a total of 17,800ft of hill climbs…!

They successfully reached their target and raised over £1,000 for Prostate Cancer UK, who have invested millions of pounds into research, services and awareness over the last 10 years.

The team of two prepared for the challenge with the help of one of their other partners, the Institute of Sport, Exercise & Health (ISEH). The team at the ISEH – which includes students from the divisions Sports Medicine, Exercise & Health MSc –  provided Dan and Mark with expert guidance for their physical preparations and the endurance of the ride, whilst assisting with effective training methods and injury prevention during and after the event.
