    Story

    Thank-you for visiting my fundraising page.

    Marine Marathon from Reef to Reef

    On 30th June I’ll be completing a ‘Marine Marathon from Reef to Reef’, starting at the Purbeck Marine Wildlife Reserve and reef at Kimmeridge and running, biking and paddleboarding 26.2 miles along the hilly Jurassic Coast, to finish at Urban Reef in Boscombe.

    To help protect our blue planet

    I‘m doing this to raise money for the MAR Fund, a not for profit organisation dedicated to protecting the Mesoamerican Reef, which stretches 1,000 kms from Mexico down to Honduras. This is the second largest reef system in the world and is home to thousands of fish, manatees, whale sharks and coral, all of which are under threat from pollutants, coastal development, over-fishing, climate change and the impact of tourism. Anyone who has been lucky enough to dive coral reefs or has watched David Attenborough‘s Blue Planet series will appreciate just how beautiful, and just how fragile, these reef systems are. The MAR fund is passionate about preserving these reefs for the benefit of the communites who depend on them today as well as for future generations. I am planning to go out to Guatemala to do some volunteer work for MAR later this year to support more directly the great work they do. Check out the MAR Fund here

    In the words of our favourite naturalist

    It is clear now that our actions are having a significant impact on the world’s oceans. They are under threat now as never before in human history. Surely we have a responsibility to care for our blue planet.

    Sir David Attenborough, Blue Planet II

      What a fantastic day we had yesterday for the Marine Marathon. Sunny, 26 degrees with a sea breeze that made it much more bearable. Starting in Kimmeridge I ran 11.5 miles along the coast, stopping to try and get a signal so that I could let my support crew know how I was doing. My phone said ‘welcome to France’ but wouldn’t let me make a call! Then it was a 13 mile cycle to Bournemouth pier, and a windy paddle on to Urban Reef. Huge thanks for all your donations and support. With your help we’ve raised over £1500 towards this great cause.
