Day 3: The One Where They Climbed!— Sport Relief (@sportrelief) February 26, 2020
Today was about extreme highs and desperate lows as the team scrambled across the great desert dunes of Namibia. The cracks are starting to show, but the finale tomorrow on the Skeleton Coast is within grasp... ☠️ https://t.co/KejIM5g6rG pic.twitter.com/7AjgEgbE8r

Day 2 : The One Where They Walked! 🥵🚶♂️— Sport Relief (@sportrelief) February 26, 2020
Tackling some of the biggest sand dunes in the world is not for the faint hearted. The team are struggling both physically and mentally, are absolutely exhausted, and emotions are running high all around... pic.twitter.com/bIzCyGgVNN
The day didn't quite go to plan for some... @grimmers was assessed by a medic and it quickly became clear that he had to take some time out due to bad heat exhaustion 🥵— Sport Relief (@sportrelief) February 25, 2020
Hopefully with plenty of rest 😴, and water🚰, he will be joining the team for Day 3! https://t.co/KejIM5g6rG pic.twitter.com/I6qWpnHGhI
So fresh-faced yesterday... Right before they actually started cycling! While 35 miles doesn't sound like much if you're a keen road cyclist, riding fat bikes across scorching hot sand is much MUCH more difficult🚲— Sport Relief (@sportrelief) February 25, 2020
Stay up to date with the challenge! https://t.co/N6Mztdpz8H pic.twitter.com/nCUFvbsAru
Over four days, the team traversed the Namib desert in Namibia, Africa by foot, bike and ski to reach a shipwreck on the notoriously dangerous Skeleton Coast. They faced exhausting days in the blistering sun and took on the highest sand dunes on earth as well as encountering deadly desert wildlife all in temperatures up to 35 degrees Celsius.
