On Saturday the 11th of May 2019 – Sunday the 12 of May 2019, endurance athletes Roy Hanford, Jordie Wilcock, Kieran Bingham and James Maskey will attempt a small team ultra-distance world record for the furthest distance travelled in a 24-hour period on a Concept2 SkiErg machine.
Whilst training for and performing this gruelling ultra-endurance world record attempt, the team are championing awareness, support and raising much-needed funds for two Australian based Non-Governmental Organisations – Beyond Blue and the Lighthouse Foundation.
Beyond Blue is an independent, not for profit organisation working to increase awareness and understanding of anxiety, depression and suicide and ultimately aims to help Australian’s achieve their best possible mental health. The Lighthouse Foundation is a non-denominational and independent organisation that provides homeless young people from backgrounds of long-term neglect and abuse, with a home, a sense of family, and around-the-clock therapeutic care that is individually tailored, trauma-informed and proven to work.
The world record attempt will be held at The Fit Project, a performance-driven functional training studio in Brunswick, Victoria.
We have created this event because we want to make a difference. We are inspired by the work that Beyond Blue and the Lighthouse Foundation does and want to support them.
