Race the Sun is a hugely popular team challenge set in the stunning Lake District. Teams of four are challenged to cycle 50 miles, climb Helvellyn and canoe Lake Thirlmere. Starting at sunrise and finishing by sunset - Racing the Sun!

All funds raised by the challenge will support the work of Action Medical Research and will make a huge difference to the research the charity is able to fund offering hope to the many thousands of families across the UK who are dealing with the trauma of a baby born too early, striving to support a child affected by disability, or facing the challenge of caring for a child with a rare and devastating disease for which there is no cure.

Race the Sun 2012 is going to be an extra special event as we will be celebrating 10 years of this amazing challenge, which has raised well over £750,000 for Action Medical Research.
