The Tabern St Helens Triathlon 2016 In association with the Steve Prescott Foundation

The Tabern St Helens Triathlon 2016 In association with the Steve Prescott Foundation

On the 25th September 2016, the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) will host the Tabern St Helens Triathlon.  Last year’s inaugural triathlon was immensely successful; the foundation set up in his name had finally made the great man’s dream become a reality. The race will start at Eccleston Mere and will include an Olympic and Sprint triathlon distance.

Martin Blondel, general manager of the SPF, described the event as the hardest logistical challenge in the SPF’s history.

He said: “Steve and I had been working on the concept of a triathlon taking place in St Helens for over three years. Leading people within St Helens said it would not happen. It was Steve’s last wish that it would take place. We could have easily opted for an indoor swim but Steve wanted in true SPF style for the triathlon to be a full test and this certainly is! Last year we attracted over 300 participants, this year we are hoping that "triathletes" of all abilities will test themselves and be inspired by Steve's courage in our Million Pound Year"

The second part of the triathlon will tackle the famous “Shaley Brow” into Orrell and back down past the Lancashire Manor Hotel through Crawford Village then into Rainford High School, who will host the second transition area.  The Olympic triathletes will head back out to Crank for another loop of the cycling course with the sprint triathletes setting out from the school onto a 5km course around Rainford.  On completion of the 25 mile bike ride the Olympic triathletes will attempt the Rainford 10k course to finish the triathlon.

    Spectrum Everest Base Camp Challenge 20162016 is a milestone year for the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) as we expect to reach the million pound milestone of donations to our nominated charities Try Assist, the Christie and the SPF Special Causes Fund.

    We are delighted to announce details of the latest epic challenge inspired by Steve Prescott MBE. The Everest Base Camp Challenge 2016 sponsored by the Manchester based Spectrum Group, a leading supplier of support services in the industrial sector follows on from the fantastic success of the Spectrum Kilimanjaro Challenge of 2015 which raised over £150,000 for the SPF.

    Spectrum Everest Base Camp Challenge 2016A party of climbers led by SPF Trustee Ade Cunliffe will set off on their adventure on 13th October and return to the UK on 28th October. Personalities already pledging to undertake this challenge are St Helens actor Michael Parr who plays bad boy Ross Barton in ITV’s Emmerdale and rugby league legends Lee Briers, Barrie McDermott, Alan Hunte, Chico Jackson, Mike Wainwright, Ade Gardner, Iestyn Harris and Neil Harmon.

    Mike Parr has been shortlisted for best Serial Drama Performance at the National Television Awards 2016 and says ‘We will try and raise as much money as possible by climbing the biggest mountain in the world. It’s going to be challenging but hopefully the money we raise will change people’s lives.’ Each of the climbers agrees to raise minimum of £4500 for the SPF. Some of the ladies who successfully conquered Kilimanjaro have also signed up for the trek including Jenna Brough, Janet Caldwell and Hayley Russell.

    The party will arrive in Kathmandu and then face an eleven day trek to Nepal Everest Base Camp and then continue to "Kala Pattar" to reach a finishing height of 5645 meters above sea level. The Everest Base Camp trek is one of the most popular trekking routes in the Himalayas and is visited by thousands of trekkers each year. The trek is considered strenuous and will be a test of fitness, stamina and determination for all the climbers in the true spirit of Steve Prescott.

  • Spectrum Kilimanjaro Challenge 2015

    Spectrum - Sponsors of the Kilimanjaro Challenge 2015 The “WORLD RECORD” challenge to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and play the world’s highest game of rugby league, lies ahead for a unique team of volunteers in October 2015.All to raise funds & awareness, for the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF).

    But this is no ordinary team of volunteers. They include some true legends of rugby league and leaders on the field ; Adrian Morley of Salford Red Devils, retired legends Lee Briers, Barrie McDermott, Garreth Carvell, Chico Jackson, Mike WainwrightNeil Harmon and Alan Hunte. Who will all be kept in line, by the watchful eye & keen whistle of non other than Referee Supremo, Robert Hicks.

    In the climbing party are Sky Sports Angela Powers, and BBC TV’s Beccy Meehan, who will not only be climbing the mountain and taking part in the world record rugby game, but also filming the whole challenge to be broadcast across their respective TV networks.

    And from the film world, we have the actor, Matthew Lewis, famous for his role as Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films, taking on the challenge.

    In the spirit of Steve Prescott, the challenge is to climb the 19,341ft mountain in just 6 days instead of the more usual 9 days. AND, when reaching the summit, the team will then mark out a full sized rugby pitch, erect 2 sets of inflatable rugby posts, and play a full game of rugby league. It will challenge each individual’s fitness and mental stamina as they reach almost 6000 meters.

    The success rate of this challenge is well documented at 27%. Each climber aims to raise at least £4000 for the 3 charities of the SPF, the Christie Hospital, Try Assist and the Oxford Transplant Foundation.

    The event is very kindly sponsored by the Manchester based Spectrum Group, a leading supplier of support services in the industrial sector.

    Adrian Morley said.' I am really looking forward to this unique challenge by testing myself in a totally different way.'

    Martin Blondel on behalf of the SPF said ‘It was Steve's wish to tackle Kilimanjaro! We are elated that we have so many personalities willing to carry Steve's name and legacy to the summit. And to have a world record attached to the SPF would be truly incredible and hopefully bring more awareness of the foundation to the masses’

    The party will be led by SPF committee member Ade Cunliffe who was one of a party of twelve who climbed to the summit of Kilimanjaro, in our 2013 challenge.
