Last month we updated you on how Square 1 Products planned to support the MS Society throughout 2017, and now it’s time for our first event! Patrick Wyly our Financial Director is taking on the huge challenge of tackling the Snowdonia Etape Eryri on the 11th June 2017.
The Snowdonia Etape Eryri is highly recognised as one of the UK’s very best cycling events, taking you around the best roads, views and of course climbs Snowdonia National Park. However, it’s not all as scenic and light hearted as it comes across, the event comes with an incredibly high difficulty rating, the Snowdonia Etape Eryri is by no means an easy challenge for Patrick tackling the trail.
Last year the Snowdonia Etape Eryri welcomed over 1200 cyclists to the Castle Square in Caerarfon, with cyclists splitting off into a range of groups to tackle different trails throughout the Snowdonia national park. Caernarfon Castle is a World Heritage Site, this makes for possibly the most impressive start/finish location for any sporting event. Although we’re not sure if Patrick will appreciate it quite as much at the finishing point after his legs have battled round the circuit!
Patrick has put in months of training to physically prepare himself for such a big challenge, to give the Snowdonia Etape Eryri his absolute all. To support Patrick and his huge challenge you can donate through our JustGiving page. It’s simple, fast, and totally secure. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. Over the course of this year Square 1 Products aims to raise £5000 for the charity through various activities and challenges, with some really pushing our team to their max.
The MS Society is an exceptional charity that can help and support those who have been affected by the condition. It’s going to be a huge challenge for Patrick tackling the Snowdonia Etape Eryri but one he’s looking forward to. Square 1 Products wish Patrick the best of luck, we know he’ll give it his all on Sunday 11th June.
