Sir Richard Branson defies doctor orders to take on Strive Challenge

By September 10, 2016Run

Entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson just recently recovered from a pretty harsh bike accident and was on strict doctor orders to take it easy. But, as with any die hard athlete, when another challenge proposes itself and has a good cause tied to it you sometimes break the rules a little bit.

Branson, along with some members from his family, are taking on the Virgin Strive Challenge.

From the article: And this is no easy feat – the grueling trek will see Richard, Holly and Sam, along with hundreds of sports enthusiasts going on from the base of the Matterhorn to cycling the entire length of Italy, swimming to Sicily, mountain biking to the foothills of Mount Edna, and finally finishing with a trail run to the summit of the active volcano.

Have you ever let an injury keep you from the next race, ride or hike?!
