Story

The official announcement has arrived!!! 
The Charity event for 2014 is confirmed and details as follows.....
6 average joes who have barely ever ran a mile are taking on the...
"COVENTRY HALF MARATHON 2014"
13.1 mile road race in and around Coventry Town Centre. One hell of a challenge even for the fitter people in this world, let alone us lot of lager drinking, cigarette smoking, junk food eating people of the world! 
This event is fully booked for us now and the main reason behind us all 
doing this is of course... CHARITY...
5 of us are going to be running for the Marie Curie Foundation & 1 for Zoe's Place charity. Both obviously FANTASTIC causes!
To follow in the coming days will be the "2" Just Giving pages for everybody to make their donations.
Please note JON FOWLER is running for Zoe's Place
PAUL FARRUGIA DOMINIC EADES JAMES ROGERS WILLIAM DUNN & DARREN VINNINGS will be running for the Marie Curie Foundation.
Please note that the Just giving page that will follow for the Marie Curie is a joint sponsorship. So please donate accordingly as one donation will be for ALL 5 OF US TO COMPLETE THE HALF MARATHON, NOT JUST ONE OF US.  We understand that financially that this is not good timing but please give what you can. Before you donate please bear in mind that all 6 of us are already involved in a 10 week intense training programme. Consisting of 5days a week training and a STRICT diet plan! :-(
Some of us have even packed fags in ;-)
To help raise STUPID amounts of money we are also currently trying to organise a CHARITY FUND RAISER. We are hoping this is going to consist of a pool knockout competition, a raffle, an auction (giving you the perfect opportunity to pay way over the odds for stuff) and ANYTHING else we can think of to RAISE RAISE RAISE!!!
Thanks for having a read and further (shorter) updates will follow in due course! 
Thanks in advance, 6 average joes :-)
