Danny and Graham’s Iron Butts Challenge Blog

Red Dwarf’s ‘Cat’ and bike fan Danny John Jules and his team mate Graham Hoskins are taking on an endurance bike run in aid of Sport Relief.

You can follow their adventures on their blog here and donate to Sport Relief here

The profile on their blog reads;

Red Dwarf star Danny John-Jules and his team mate Graham Hoskins undertake the challenge of a lifetime, motor-biking nearly 7000 miles to circumnavigate the Mediterranean Sea in just 15 days. Graham and Danny will travel through 3 continents, riding across 14 diverse, scenic and often chaotic Mediterranean countries as they cross from Europe over the Bosphorus into Asia, through the Middle East and round into North Africa. It’s an endurance challenge and not for the faint hearted! To finish the Iron Butts Challenge, Danny and Graham will have to work together to overcome whatever trials face them. From bad navigation and getting lost, to flat tyres, mad and bad local drivers, mechanical failure, visa and border issues, running out of fuel and cultural differences.

About Sport Relief

As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. It has a unique history of dedicated people doing extraordinary things to rise to the challenge and make the world of difference to poor and vulnerable people.

And, following in their footsteps, hundreds of thousands of people, right across the UK, have a great time when they complete brilliant challenges of their own.

The Sport Relief Weekend is taking place from Friday 19th March to Sunday 21st March 2010 and it’ll be three whole days of energy, entertainment and events for everyone to enjoy. From the Friday of fundraising fun, and a night of cracking TV on BBC One, right through to the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on Sunday, it promises to be a brilliant weekend.

And, the best bit is, all the money raised by the public will be spent by Comic Relief to help people living unimaginably tough lives, both at home and across the world’s poorest countries. So be a part of it… Rise to your challenge!

Sport Relief is an initiative of Comic Relief, registered charity 326568 (England/Wales); SC039730 (Scotland).
