My Story

We are 4 keen cyclists/triathletes who have entered Race Across America (RAAM) which starts on the 16th June 2018 in Oceanside, California. The race covers 3000miles (and goes through 12 states) and finishes on the East coast of America in Annapolis. This non stop race will test the cyclists and the 11 strong crew team. We have a strong team and our competitive nature means we want to race and be competitive against other teams from all over the world. Apart from the competitive side of the event, we also see the need to raise money for Cancer Research UK as we have all been touched by cancer. I (Ian) lost my Sister Juliet back in January 2015 and John lost his Mom Jan back in 2016. Lee and Nick have also been touched by the loss of many close relatives to our good friends. So whilst we will be giving our all to be the first team across the states, we will also be thinking of our loved ones and fundraising from such a good cause. So follow our journey and we will see you on the other side.


All Cancer Types

Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Consistent progress is being made but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further. Help Cancer Research UK improve results even faster.
