At Chrome, we value perseverance and we love a challenge. This applies to what we aim to achieve as a business and as a team, and to our activities outside of the office. When someone challenges themselves to push their limits we encourage it, especially when it’s being done in support of a good cause.
Andy McGhee is a GB athlete, gym owner and coach. He’s an individual who constantly challenges himself and tests his limits. As a former solider, he’s experienced in practising the self-discipline and determination needed for peak performance.
Andy uses this experience to complete endurance challenges, testing and challenging his capabilities whilst raising money for charity. That’s why we’ve decided to sponsor Andy McGhee’s Ultra 25 Challenge, his biggest challenge to date and a world record attempt. Click here to visit Andy’s JustGiving page.
What is the Ultra 25 challenge?
Between 7th September and 1st October 2022, Andy will be facing his toughest challenge yet. The Ultra 25 is a world record attempt which will see him complete an incredible 25 ultra duathlons in 25 days. A duathlon consists of running and cycling, but Andy’s taking it to extremes. He will run 25km, cycle 180 km and then run a further 25km – not just once, but every day for 25 days!

Which charity is the Ultra 25 Challenge supporting?
Andy is doing the Ultra 25 in support of Children with Cancer UK. This fantastic charity is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to fighting childhood cancer.
Since 1988, Children with Cancer UK have been funding research, supporting families, and raising awareness for childhood cancer.
The charity funds research into the causes and treatment of childhood cancers. Their work has accelerated breakthroughs which have contributed to improving survival rates, as well as finding more effective treatments.
Their support for families includes working with other organisations to provide families with accommodation close to hospitals and grant programmes.
Children with Cancer UK raise awareness for childhood cancer by sharing the experiences of children and their families, and the side effects of current treatments which are often life-limiting. They do this in the hopes that it will reduce delays in diagnosis and encourage greater funding of childhood cancer research.
