On 4 June, an intrepid group of Assembly Studios folk and friends will be tacking the Commando Challenge in aid of Retrak, an amazing charity working to improve the lives of street children in Africa. The challenge will take place in the Lake District, where the team will have a mere 12 hours to travel 46.5K.
The challenge comprises a 13k canoe to Ullswater, then a 10K stroll up Helvellyn via Striding Edge, followed by a 20km bike ride to Derwent Water, then, to round off, a 3.5k canoe from Derwent Water to Keswick.
The team is made up of: Matt Fairman (CEO); Matthew Jones (CG Artist); Ross Cunningham (Creative Director); Ben Tadiar (Web Developer) and our good friends Fredrik and Chris.
