Pritchard vs Dainton million mile Charity race

Pritchard and Dainton from Dirty Sanchez have set each other the challenge to skate from Cardiff all the way to newquay Cornwall to get to one of the best parties of the summer the Newquay board masters festival while raising money for cancer research on the way.

They will skate via A roads on the coastal route, which is 192 miles long over a period of 7 days and skating through a load of towns on the way to raise cash.

The race starts Thursday 27th of July from city hall in Cardiff and will end in newquay on headland road (hopefully) for the start of the newquay board masters festival on Thursday the 3rd of august.

Below are some of the towns that we will be skating through on the way, so if you are local, go give ’em your money and they will probably return the favour for “odd jobs”.

Keep your eyes peeled as they are coming through and will be putting on live shows, skate demos, Sanchez car boot sales, shop signings, wet tee shirts comps and trying not to kill each in order to raise cash for cancer research.

As soon as they have the dates for the towns they are going through on the way, the boys will post them up on the mtv overdrive website.

Who’s going to win the race? Who’s going to raise the most cash?

Who’s going to loose?

Its PRITCHARDvsDAINTON time again!
