Congratulations to the whole of the Virgin Strive Challenge team that have just successfully completed the journey from London to the peak of The Matterhorn in Switzerland.
The different legs of the journey saw the group complete three marathons from London to Dover, row the English Channel, cycle 900km to Verbier in Switzerland and hike seven days across the alps.
The event is raising money for Big Change, a charity founded by six friends including Sam Branson, Holly Branson, and Princess Beatrice. Other famous faces to take part in the marathon included Ben Ainslie, funnyman Jack Whitehall and singer Alexandra Burke.
