    Story

    As a church we are passionate about these kids in Africa.

    We give them an education & we care deeply for them. We just need to provide a well to save them having to travel 5kms 3 times a day to there nearest water supply.

    In 4 weeks time I will run a marathon to get that well

      We did it!! Marathon completed 5 hours 32 mins Conditions were fantastic, organisation was excellent & it was definitely worth doing. Amazing response to sponsorship - well on the way to getting the well started and turning the tap on so the children in Burkina can enjoy fresh water. Thank you to everone who supported me - I could not have done it without you!

      Final training run done - feeling good - aches & pains seem to have gone. Weather forecast is good for tomorrow! Somewhere amongst 12499 other runners I will do my best to complete the race so we are that bit nearer to digging the well & giving the kids in Burkina fresh water. It will definitely be worth it!

      3 days to the Ikano Robin Hood Marathon & really looking forward to it. Training has gone well but nursing some aches & pains. The lady at Boots has assured me that there pain relief cream works wonders. Hoping to finish in around 5 hours 30 mins and looking forward to a pint, a good meal, and no more running for at least a week. If the link doesn't work & you would like to sponsor me please transfer to Barclays account number 00553476, sort code 20 90 26, name P Edmonds. Really appreciate all your support!

    Temperatures can easily reach 40C. The nearest water is 30 mins away by donkey. We know there is water very near the school we just need to dig the well. I was not fit & hate running but this year I have entered the Ikano Robin Hood marathon & will run 26.2 miles for that well
