Story

The Scout movement is doing all it can to enrich young people's lives and equip them with skills for life in a global community. Part of that programme is to allow as many as possible to experience at least one International Camp whilst they are still in scouts. Something I am very keen and personally involved with. As leaders ( unpaid volunteers) we give hours of our own time to support them. But sometimes they need money as well. So I'm running to raise funds to help the. With the Manchester 10k and Half Marathon done I now have a Scout Association Charity entry for London 2019 Marathon. I'm running to help raise funds for the scouts of the UK Hopefully through scouting they will develop Skills For Life that they will share with dozens of other young people and we will all share a multiplying effect in developing our young people.

    Finished the Manchester Half Marathon as part of the build up training to next year's marathon. Still a lot of training to do as this was my slowest time ever! 2 hours 37 in the pouring rain. Back on the road again now to build up mileage and speed. Thanks for the donations already received please keep them coming in as I've got even more scouts who want to do the international camps coming up next year. I've now added hill walking as a form of training and with 5 other Scout leaders will be walking 5 big hill hikes over the next 5 months.

    Today I completed the Manchester Half Marathon as another step on my training towards a marathon next year. Sponsorship is still coming in but we need your help to get our scouts on the trip of a lifetime. Please just give a small donation because every little helps. If all my friends just gave pound we could send one scout to Uganda to help build a school. Please give as generously as you can, I promise you it will have a massive impact on these scouts and the countries they visit.

    So more training in place and waiting news of the London Marathon Entry Ballot next week. Did the Chorley Healey 4 Peaks as a long distance stamina builder last week. Walking briskly up the hills and running all the downhills and flats. We did 19 miles in all with well over 1000 meters of climbing. 5 hrs 20 mins on our feet. Training regularly now and next trial Manchester half marathon 14th October. Still raising funds for Unit 48 West Lancs Scouts going to the 2019 World Scout Jamboree. Thanks so much for your support and generosity.
