Beeline Britain complete extraordinary endeavour
Beeline Britain have paddled, cycled and walked their way into the record books by being the first people to complete the iconic Lands End to John O Groats journey in a straight line. On Friday 13th June 14, Nick, Tori, Ian and Adam reached the northernmost point of mainland Britain after setting off in a sea kayak from Lands End 28 days before.
The longest sea kayak leg was between Lands End to St Davids and it took 34 hours of non-stop paddling to cover the 200km open water stretch. During their epic journey, the team travelled from sea level to 1309m as they crossed the Cairngorms and then back down again for another mammoth paddle from Lossiemouth to Wick.
This journey is truly inspiring, even more so when one accounts for the injuries being carried by both Nick and Ian on this 1,100km endeavour; Nick lost both his legs in an IED strike in 2009 and Ian suffers from a nerve injury to his hips and legs. Beeline Britain stands as a true example of what can be achieved post injury and The Endeavour Fund is proud to have supported such a challenge.
Prince Harry shares that pride and was delighted to be able to speak to the team in a personal telephone call shortly after they reached John O Groats.
Throughout the endeavour, Beeline Britain have been raising money for BLESMA, the limbless veterans charity.
