E.G. Lewis Group are proud to announce that we have entered a team for INVNCBL Fonmon Castle event on Saturday 6th April, 2019 on behalf of our 2018-19 charity partner Velindre Cancer Centre.
So the first challenge of the 2019 TRIAD takes us to the stunning Fonmon Castle, set in the beautiful rural landscape of the Vale of Glamorgan. This venue has everything - challenging trails, rolling fields, ridiculous amounts of the muddy stuff plus over thirty signature iNVNCBL obstacles for the team to tackle.
iNVNCBL is an OCR (Obstabcle Course Race) event like you have never seen before. Based in natural beauty spots throughout the Welsh countryside, iNVNCBL is the place to test your love for fitness, fill you with excitement and give you a challenge. Using the stunning, natural welsh landscapes as the backdrop for our races we are proud to combine nature and sport innovation.
It all started with the very first event ‘The Burn’ based in Cowbridge, Wales. Adam Jones a retired Welsh rugby player and his Lawyer wife Natasha Louca-Jones moulded the idea of challenge, fun and utilisation of the Welsh countryside. Such a success, the demand grew, as an innovative OCR, Adam and Natasha went on to create the iNVNCBL race series.
The money raised from E.G Lewis Group’s fundraising will be used to ensure the best possible support is offered to every patient, their families and carers dealing with cancer. It will help Velindre to fund ground breaking research, specialist equipment, and new developments so our staff have access to the most up to date training and techniques available.
We all know of family, friends and loved ones who have been touched by cancer. The incidence of cancer is rising by 2% each year in Wales with nearly 20,000 people diagnosed with this illness each year, and by 2020 one in two of us will develop cancer and 150,000 people will be living with a current or previous diagnosis of this disease.
This will be second iNVNCBL challenge that E.G. Lewis Group team will look to complete in a matter of months, having raised £735.00 in support of Velindre via the iNVCNBL Cardiff event on Saturday 20thOctober, 2018.
