    Funded on Tuesday, 2nd August 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    *We have now completed this challenge.* Donations are still gratefully accepted and all of us would like to thank everyone who has contributed to our fundraising page.

    ‘Team Ford Fuels’ consists of five employees selected form Ford Fuels’ multiple depots. The athlete profile of each individual varies considerably and we have a mix of seasoned marathon runners and individuals who have never even managed a half marathon, let alone a double!

    Our team consists of two HGV tanker drivers (Rob Coles & Colin Turner), a commercial accountant (Adam Brinkworth), a depot manager (Rob Robinson) and a Director (Ryan Bowers).

    On June 25th 2022 we will start a nonstop ultra-marathon called ‘Race to the Tower’. The marathon starts just north of Stroud and then follows the Cotswold way, finishing at Broadway tower. The total distance is 52.4miles and has 7,476ft of elevation and the whole distance is cross country!

    Race to the tower - Full route

    In the past three years our business has sadly and unexpectedly lost two exceptional colleagues and the two organisations we are raising money for are in their memory.

    Jer Thompson - Nov 2019

    Richard Ford - Feb 2021

    We are raising money for two causes:

    The British Heart Foundation

    Timsbury Cricket Club

    Both of these causes are close to Ford Fuels’ heart. Timsbury is where Ford Fuels began and much of the Ford family are still living there today. Jer himself was an active member of the Timsbury Cricket Club and had a great passion for the game. Richard, who gave so much to Ford Fuels as a Director, loved the Timsbury community and had resided in the village his who life, before passing away from a heart attack in his family home in 2021.

    The funds that are raised will be split equally between the two organisations following the event on June 25th 2022.

    You can follow our training and the event on our Strava pages:

      Hello everyone! So the race was yesterday and I am pleased to announce we have a couple of ultra superstars in our team! Adam Brinkworth not only finished the full distance in 11 hours and 5 minutes, Adam came in 43rd out of 700+ ultra marathon full distance in one go runners! Incredible!!!! Rob Coles finished in just over 14 hours, another exemplary performance. Sadly, Colin, Ryan and myself succumb to injuries and finished at 40 and 35 miles, a demonstration of just how tough this challenge was. Overall almost 180 miles combined!

      Words cannot express how proud we are of you taking on the challenge to raise funds in memory of Richard and Jer. Both are greatly missed but their influence lives on in supporting these great causes.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
