Story

Support my run.. and win the LEJOG 100 QUIZ!

I'm running 874 miles - the distance from Land's End to John O'Groats (or LEJOG) - to raise funds to support people in Wolverhampton just like me but who have been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster.

I'm in the final 100 miles so it's time for a final push to reach our target of £2,222!

In honour of the last 100 miles this BIG QUIZ has 100 questions!!

How to enter

Make your donation (suggested minimum £2) on this page. Then CLICK HERE and download the quiz! Print it out and complete, or complete it on your computer. Then email your entry to lejog100quiz@gmail.com, before 23:59 on 28 March 2021. You can also send it to LEJOG QUIZ, 7 Balfour Crescent, Wolverhampton WV6 0BJ.

The entry with the most correct answers wins! Answers will be available on request in April. If there’s a tie, there will be a draw to decide the lucky winner.

About Wolverhampton City of Sanctuary

Wolverhampton City of Sanctuary seeks to help and support asylum seekers and refugees. Until March 2020 we met weekly - offering a safe, welcoming place where people could relax by socialising, playing games and informally mixing with folk from their own and other cultures, learning english, sharing friendship and food.

These days we can only meet through the internet and phone services. We would like to offer technology and wifi to help more people take part. Our funds also help out when there is a dire financial need.

Please donate any amount you can!

I set off on 13 July and ran 100 miles in the first month... Now I'm in the final 100 miles I hope you'll support my final fundraising push!! Thank you so much.

    LEJOG100 Quiz - the results are in and I’m so very sorry that you all can’t win. It turned out to be quite a challenge but the entrants made a superb effort. The winners, after a draw to decide between the two entries who shared the same high score, are Chris and Jonathon who win the huge jackpot of £20! Well done! And another winner, Erik... ...the closest prediction for the date I’d finish my 874 mile run was just two weeks out. He wins a mini-hamper! Many thanks to all who have helped to raise £2,406 for Wolves City of Sanctuary.

My challenge is to run the distance from Land's End to John O'Groats: 874 miles. But this is nothing compared to the challenges faced by those who've fled desperate situations and find themselves here. Wolves City of Sanctuary is helping. Please help them.
