Four furniture manufacturers at Sidhil in Halifax took part in a demanding fitness challenge.

‘Race the Sun’ saw the men cycle 50 miles, hike to the summit of Helvellyn, and canoe a three mile course on Lake Thirlmere in Cumbria. The team were raising funds for Action Medical Research.

Team member Mark Oldroyd said: “We were aiming to finish in the top ten out of more than 70 teams on the day.”

The team did well, finishing in second place, completing the entire course in seven hours and 31 minutes. The team also raised more than £2000 for the charity.
