Sore feet and smiles as Team Stansted complete the Cotswold Way Ultra Challenge raising £7000 for charity

A team of 14 staff from across the airport took on the Cotswold Way Ultra Challenge in aid of Stansted’s chosen charity, CLIC Sargent, last weekend (June 29, 30).

Starting in front of Bath’s famous Royal Crescent on Saturday morning, the team took on the challenge of walking either 25, 50 or 100km across the weekend.

The walkers were cheered over their respective finish lines by a support team of colleagues, friends and family, with those completing the full 100k walking through the night to finish in Cheltenham on Sunday.

In total, the team raised almost £7,000 for CLIC Sargent.

It’s hard to the put the sense of achievement across the team into words.  Walking these distances is hard enough at the best of times, but on the hottest day of the year and over some challenging terrain, it was particularly tough.

The team should rightly feel incredibly proud of themselves, not just for completing this challenge, but for helping raise such a sizeable sum to support the work of CLIC Sargent working with young people affected by cancer.
