TRUE GRIT WETWHEELS CHALLENGE

What is it about an event in a quarry that seems so appealing!?  This event saw a 4.3km running race with a difference, taking runners on a challenging adventure, which included going through Ronez Quarry. Competitors made their way down into the ‘The Pit’ – 28 metres below sea level – before navigating their way back out around machinery to reach the panoramic views from the north coast at the finish. The Challenge has been created to raise funds for the local charity, Wetwheels Jersey, who provide the opportunity for all disabled people, including those with profound and complex disabilities, to access the sea in a safe, stimulating and rewarding way on board a specially built, fully accessible powerboat.
