The Steve Prescott Foundation calls on supporters to join The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April 2020
The UK’s charities need your help
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income through fundraising events.
We are pleased to announce that this year’s Lancashire Lance Sportive will take place at 09:00 on Sunday 26th April 2020.
This year the Lancashire Lanes Sportive will be in memory of the Steve Prescott Foundation Trustee Steve White who last year, sadly lost his long battle against Giloblastoma. Steve was a keen cyclist, taking part in LEJOG three times and many of the SPF events as well as providing helping with the support and logistics, he is sadly missed but will never be forgotten.
13th October to 26th October - Introduction
We will fly out from Heathrow late on the 13th October and land in Cusco on the 14th spending 2 days to acclimatise before starting the trek on the 16th Oct.
This challenge you will enjoy stunning views of snow-capped mountains, glaciers, lakes, wildlife, and the amazing Vinicunca Rainbow Mountains, all ending with a tour of Machu Picchu. You’ll see the highest peak (Ausangate 6,385 m/20,948 ft) in the Cusco region. This adventurous trek is approximately 100 km/62 mi and goes up to 5,400 m/17,716 ft. Ausangate is an excellent and quiet/remote trekking circuit offering stunning features such as spectacular mountain scenery, snow-capped peaks, hot springs, turquoise lakes, glaciers, herds of llamas, alpacas, and wild vicuña, picturesque villages, and traditionally dressed Quechua people.
