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.

Every donation helps and makes a significant and positive impact to mental health and youth homelessness in Australia, so thank you for your generosity. Click the 'Donate' button to donate and you will automatically receive a receipt.

Thank you for your support!

Hi all,

James, Kieran, Jordie and Roy here. Thank you so much for your kind words of support and your very generous donations to two very worthy charitable organisations, Beyond Blue and Lighthouse Foundation.

Just to provide a short update, We are 10 hours in and with 14 hours left to go, we have just ticked over the 140,000m mark. Spirits are still high in the team and the banter is still quality! No injuries as of yet, although we are definitely fatigued!

To those who have dropped by The Fit Project this afternoon - thank you. Your smiling faces and the delivery of delicious food makes this 24-hour world record attempt far less daunting. We love and appreciate you all very much.

If you are in the Brunswick area between 9:00am and 11:00am tomorrow, we invite you to come down for our community event. The purpose of this event is to generate as much support and community spirit as possible for our two charity partners, as well as cheering us home for our final two hours of the 24-hour world record attempt.

Thank you so much for your support of this mammoth undertaking, and for getting behind two remarkable organisations.

Yours in health,

James, Jordie, Kieran and Roy
