The serious training has begun

The boys are training 6 days a week and will regularly be seen dragging tyres around Richmond Park. Silly, but necessary. The sponsorship goal is £50,000 and they are 1/5 of the way there, so jump on their site and donate here. Due to the time involved in training for this fabulous project and to give it the dedication it deserves, Dr Carlyle will be taking a sabbatical for a few months to get himself into tip top shape for the Yukon.
