The sixth installment of the series takes us to the Yucatan peninsula in the Caribbean Sea, just off the coast of Belize. A huge, natural wonder with a 318m diameter and 124m sheer drop to the sea bed. With the coral reefs around its edge, this really is a sight to behold. If you are a keen scuba diver (as well as runner), then this must be on your bucket list!
This jigsaw piece medal fits nicely next to the Lake Baikal Ice Cave to its left and Iguazu Falls above. We have tried to depict the sheer size of this 'hole' off the coast of Belize. The deep, blue colour shows the depth and brown/yellow reefs around the edges make this a true natural wonder of the world.
Our chosen charity for the WotW Challenge Series is 'When You Wish Upon A Star'. When You Wish Upon A Star grant magical wishes to children with life threatening illnesses. They make memories for a Wish child and their family to remember for a lifetime. By granting a Wish, this enables the family to have a truly amazing time forgetting about hospital routines, doctor's appointments and the gruelling treatments that have become a daily occurrence and allowing the whole family to smile, laugh and enjoy life!
Challenge Events are all about pushing yourself to complete the distance so everyone is a winner if they can reach their target. So, in addition to your event reward, we have three prize boxes for the most accumulated donations and three lucky draw prize boxes to be won by anyone who completes their chosen distance, each worth £25!
