Pippa Middleton to take part in 90km ski race

Wednesday February 29, 2012

Sporty Pippa Middleton is headed off to Sweden along with her brother James to take part in a 90km ski race 

The siblings will compete in the Vasaloppet race on March 4, along with 15.800 other registered participants.

After successfully running a thriatlon last summer Pippa is ready to take on a new challenge.

She will be raising money for small charity Magic Breakfast which delivers free breakfasts to underprivileged children in thousands of state primary schools in the UK.

The Middleton siblings are following in the footsteps of their famous sister the Duchess of Cambridge, who has raised funds for children's charities in the past. 

It’s not the first time the race has had a royal connection.

Swedish royals like King Carl Gustaf participated in it in 1977 and Princess Madeleine in 2008.
