Description

2017 Climbathon - Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 September

Mont Orgeuil Castle
** Friends & Family Fun Day Out **
In association with Jersey Heritage Trust

Please get involved with this fun and family friendly event on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September, when Mont Orgeuil Castle will be dedicated to the 2017 Climbathon with special access for participants. Our thanks to Jersey Heritage Trust for supporting this event and to Jersey Overseas Aid Commission (JOAC), who will double your entry fee and Sponsorship you raise.

Challenging these Awesome Peaks will need Teamwork. Individual climbs are welcomed, to achieve what you can. To ensure both capacity and safety factors are maintained individual participants will be limited to 25 Ascents, amounting to 4,500 feet which is height of Ben Nevis. Our objective is to encourage fun and healthy competition. For the exceptionally fit there is an ultimate Team Challenge between 7.00am to 10.00am (when Castle is normally closed), to climb Mount Everest in the quickest time! Two UK Teams, a Gurkha Team and a Gurkha Welfare Trust UK Team are eager to participate. These extreme Team races will take place outside the Castle opening hours, but Supporters and Spectators are welcome to book in advance to watch and cheer them on from the Lower Guard (“Base Camp”). Friends and Family Walking Ascents are open to everyone between 10.00am and 6.00pm on both days.

In 2015 GWTJ successfully raised £96K for a new 500 student Nepal school, completed in 2016, and in 2016 raised another £44K for re-building a 130 infant school with completion planned for late 2017, both replacing schools destroyed by recent earthquakes. Our 2017 target is to raise another £44,000 for a "new-build" medical / community centre in an isolated location within West Nepal’s Earthquake zone. Such a facility nearby Nepalese villages is essential in a recognised earthquake zone. Currently a two-day hike across the mountains is needed to reach the nearest medical facility! All entry fees plus sponsorship you raise will go towards reaching this target, kindly doubled by JOAC.
