RDT’s Clover takes on 84 miles in 48 hours

Bryan Clover, CEO of industry charity the Rainy Day Trust, is taking on an Ultra Challenge to raise money for the charity.

On 17th and 18th September he will hike from Bristol to London non-stop in 48 hours. That’s 84 miles carrying a massive amount of water and everything else that he will need along the way, only stopping to top up water. The pack will weigh in excess of 40lbs.

Clover says: “The plan is to have photo stops along the way with sponsors to get the hike out there and raise awareness for the Charity and whichever businesses want to sponsor us in trade as well as local press. Dulux are already on board.

“We would like major sponsors from all four of our main sectors – builders’ merchants and suppliers, DIY, housewares and garden centres.  Training has begun and we will get sponsors’ brands in the public eye as training gets going.

“This is the single biggest challenge that I have ever undertaken and will test me to my core.  If you want to be part of it, even if only to watch me fall in the canal, drop me an e-mail.

“My hope is that this will be the biggest fundraising event of 2021 for us and will help us to meet the ever-growing pressure for our help.”
