Maghnus and David, on the Silk Roads to Shanghai

 
SAND2SNOW ADVENTURES

Since 2008 David Burns and Maghnus Collins have embarked upon man-powered adventures and endurance races across the globe. During the course of these expeditions the pair have cycled, run and kayaked for over 30,000 km in some of the most remote locations on earth.

They also organise one of the toughest single day endurance tests in the world; The Race, a 250 km test of endurance set in Donegal, Ireland.

Throughout the course of their adventures Sand2Snow Adventures has raised over 100,000 euro for charity.

Sand2Snow Adventures is the hub for all their adventure activities.
