03 May Double World Record Breakers at Everest!
ON 30 APRIL our intrepid adventurers broke a World Record for playing the highest game of rugby in history, at 6,331m above sea level. The game builds on an earlier record set by the group for the highest ever game of touch rugby at 5,119m. Both record breaking games are subject to verification by Guinness.
Taking place on the East Rongbuk Glacier, near Mount Everest’s Advanced Base Camp, at 10:15am Nepalese time on Tuesday 30th April, the game formed part of the LMAX Exchange Everest Rugby Challenge. The Challenge has already raised over £250,000, which will help fund charitable projects for children around the UK and Ireland.Full details can be found here on the Wooden Spoon website
