ECSAC go the extra mile
A huge congratulations to Alison, Helen, Steve and Vesta on their Mayday Mile challenges for the RNLI. As many of you will know the club has now missed two trips to the Menai Run which always raises some much needed funs for such a worthy cause. This spurred the team on to try and raise as much as they could.
In total they have walked and ran over 220 miles and raised a staggering £1,512 between them.
Alison not only walked for the RNLI, but her dog Quincy walked for the Guide Dogs and they managed an impressive 95 miles throughout May!
Steve braved all weathers, including hail to make sure he could finish his 20 mile run
Helen clocked a very impressive 50miles (including 1 mile of ascent), with her last run totalling 22km!
Vesta donned the dive kit and chose the warmest day of the year (so far) to climb up to White Nancy, completing a 14.88km walk.

ECSAC takeover BSAC's Specialist Interest webinars for the return to Project Highball
Kevin Phillips and Mark Paisey recently took to BSAC’s Specialist Interest webinars to tell the story of how ECSAC along with the Navy and many others helped raise two of the Highball bombs famously known for the Dambusters raid. Visit our Project Highball page to find out more and watch the two presentations from the history to the expedition itself.
ECSAC raise over £1,500 for The 2.6 Challenge!
On Sunday 26th April, the 40th London Marathon was set to raise millions of pounds for charities. As lockdown continued and Coronavirus caused mass gathering events to be cancelled, the UK’s mass participation event industry came together to create the 2.6 Challenge to save the UK’s charities.
ECSAC teamed up with the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) and a number of our members went bonkers to try and raise as much as they could.
