Maidstone to Manchester on foot! over 6 days!!!!!!
Last year I got the Chance to play football at Old Trafford for a charity called Football Aid(Not to be confused for Robbie Williams celebrity Mob). This year I have the opportunity again whilst raising money for charity. As playing at Old Trafford is a amazing experience I feel I need to do something outrageous to raise sponsorship money so I will be spending a week running/jogging/walking and potentially crawling from Maidstone United Football club to Manchester United Football Club.
This is around 240 miles and I am pretty confident it will not be a pleasant experience.
Football Aid was created as a unique way of raising money for charity and voluntary organisations. Through their parent charity, Field of Dreams' multi-beneficiary grant award scheme, the funds raised from the Football Aid events are distributed to diabetes research, education and management projects plus charities nominated for funding by the Clubs that take part. Football Aid has donated over £2.3M in charitable grants since 2001.

The dates will be confirmed over the next few weeks as I am trying to arrange my support team in case I literally keel over on the M1. As soon as dates are confirmed I will post them here but it will be in December.
So I guess the bottom line is I am willing to run myself into the ground to raise money for the various charities that benefit from this great foundation and then play at Old Trafford. Please support me raise money for this great cause.

About the fundraiser
Maidstone, United Kingdom
Several years ago I ran a treadmill marathon in a gorilla suit raising £500 for children in need. My last real road race was the Brighton 10 mile, so I guess this is more a challenge of mental strength than fitness. On the upside I am a stubborn idiot so failure is not a option!
