Belfast, United Kingdom, August 26, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Bunk Campers have recently agreed to support Philip Field in "Race Around Ireland," Europe’s toughest non-stop 2,100km cycle challenge to raise money for Help for Heroes taking place from 11th September 2011. The cut off time for the event is 132 hours for solos and two person teams and 96 hours for teams.
Philip Field from Team Exiles Cycling Team based in Verbier, Switzerland will be competing as a solo entrant in the World Cup Ultra Marathon series event. He will be entering completely unchartered territory with riders on average cycling for 18-20 hours a day (450 Km's) to complete the course in the tight 132 hour time limit. Philip will be raising money for 'Help for Heroes' in support of the wounded soldiers affected by the tolls of war.
http://www.bunkcampers.com/ are providing their 6 berth motorhome (Grande) to accommodate Philip and his crew for the duration of the race around the island. The motorhome will act as the team hub where the crew will be able to use the shower facilities to freshen up, the kitchen utilities to prepare food for themselves and Philip, and the on board beds to get some well earned rest. The ability to be able to cook fresh nutritional food and get some sleep will help to lessen Philip’s stress and increase his chances of success. Philip writes that “The support from Bunk Campers in my aim to complete Ireland is so hugely appreciated!”
The association with Race Around Ireland is a first for Bunk Campers and they are thrilled to be supporting Philip and his crew in committing to the cycle challenge in raising money for such a worthy cause like Help for Heroes. Keith Charlton, Managing Director of Bunk Campers writes that “We are extremely pleased that we can provide a motorhome for the Team Exiles Cycling Team competing in the Race Around Ireland and we want to wish Philip all the best of luck for the competition in September.”
