Montychappers (Helen & Mark Chapman) are aiming for about 300 km hike.

Why did you decide to register to this race?

Some adventure race friends pointed it out to us and as it didn’t involve a kayak (Helen having just pulled a kayak far too far in ITERA & Mark’s dislike of kayaking) it sounded fun and a great opportunity to explore Lapland.

What kind of trip you expect LWC to be?

We expect it to be challenging but full of lovely scenery if we have enough energy to enjoy it and the weather is favourable then it will be a nice camping trip (yes we are proposing to rest every night!).

Tell something about your team. What does the name stand for?

Montychappers – we’re not very inventive so we’ve just combined our solo racing names (montyzoomer and chappers).

What is the longest distance you have traveled in terrain (by foot) in 24 hours?

We’re not quite sure as most of our endurance events have been on two wheels.

What’s your goal in LWC?

We’re aiming for about 300 km and crossing the finishing line by the cut off time but we want to try and enjoy the new experience.

Due to the travel restrictions caused by the coronavirus epidemic, Montychappers can not participate LWC 2020, but we really hope to see the team in the next chapter of Lapland Wilderness Challenge!
