Pippa Middleton Competing In 56 Mile Cross Country Skiing Race For Children’s Charity

Pippa Cross Country

Now that’s what we call walking the walk instead of just talking the talk!

Pippa Middleton is so serious about charity that she’s willing to race across 56 miles of frozen tundra to raise money for hungry youngsters!

She’ll be competing alongside her brother, James, in the 2012 Vasaloppet cross country skiing race in Sweden this Sunday, which is not only one of the LONGEST events of its kind in the world, it’s the OLDEST!

Following a tradition started in 1922, Pippa and James will be sliding across snow and ice to benefit Magic Breakfast, a children’s charity with a mission to feed the UK’s poor children.

In preparation for the exhausting journey, both siblings were spotted training for the event this past weekend at a Switzerland ski resort. Click here for pics!
