James Newbury Challenge 2021

The James Newbury Challenge (JNC) is in its 2nd year! A year on from James losing his battle with Pancreatic Cancer, the JNC 2021 is our way of remembering and celebrating our dear friend and loving husband to Sharon, James Newbury. 

All those who knew James would know he loved a challenge so we are all setting ourselves some for this year and hoping to raise a little money at the same time for this very worthy cause. 

There are 2 ways you can support the JNC 2021, 

1. Donate (whatever amount you can) to show your support for everyone doing different challenges,


2. Set yourself a challenge to complete before the end of November, donate £24 to 'enter' to JNC2021 and invite others to sponsor you using this fundraising page.

JNC 2021 Challenges so far:

Sharon Newbury: Starting on James' birthday (17th Oct), Sharon will be walking 124 miles in a month (17th Oct - 17th Nov)

Andrea Faull-Brown: Having secured a place for the April 2020 race which was postponed due to COVID, Andrea will (finally) be running the London Marathon on Sunday 3rd October. Andrea is also hoping to follow in Sharon's footsteps by running 124 miles in a month. 

Rachel Faull-Brown: Also starting on James' birthday, Rachel will be attempting the John O Groats to Lands End Conqueror challenge. Cycling 36 miles everyday for 30 days on a turbo trainer. That's 1084 miles in total.

Steven Jones: On the 6th / 7th Oct, Steve will be walking 24 miles, plus taking on James' 24 miles, so 48 miles total within 12 hours.

Swim done

A chilly swim today completed that section of my challenge - just the run and bike ride to finish now 😃🚴‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️ photos added to my gallery...

And we're off

Saturday 16th October saw the tough Abersoch Triathlon kick off my challenge. 750m swimming ✅ 20km cycling ✅ 5km running ✅ although about half of the run was on sand so felt like double the distance! 
Booked in for swimming at Lenches Lakes on 4 upcoming Saturdays so hoping that will be more than enough to reach 1.24km, though it's getting chilly in the water now😱
Cycling and running will come from trips to the Wyre Forest🌲🌳🚴‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️

Taking it on

Starting 16th October I will be swimming 1.24km in open water, running 12.4km and cycling 124km, kicking off with a sea swim at the Abersoch triathlon 🏊🏻‍♀️🚴🏻‍♀️🏃🏼‍♀️ bring on the hot chocolate!
