Mike Haslam's SW Coast Path Challenge

I've now run the SW Coast Path in 20 days for Christian Aid because I want to support their life-saving work.

Christian Aid

Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of dignity, freedom and hope, of power over their own lives. Christian Aid has a vision - an end to poverty - and we believe that vision can become a reality. All donations made on the main page will go to our general funds.

Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page

To raise money and awareness for Christian Aid, I've managed to (just about) run and occasionally hobble the 630 miles of the SW Coast Path from Minehead to Poole in 20 (non consecutive days).  Christian Aid works with some of the poorest people in the world; their work is life-saving, in places from Gaza to Syria to Sudan.

The SW Coast Path is perhaps  the longest and most challenging route in the country.  I hope that my attempt at it will help me to help Christian Aid.  Have a look at the stats below to see the scale of the challenge.

Overall Route Minehead to Land's End to Poole

Distance 630 miles (1,008km)

Ascent 35,000m

ALL IN 20 DAYS!

Which means...

Average daily distance 31.5 miles 

Total number of marathons 24.05

Equivalent total times up Everest 3.96

Sponsor me please...?

I'm raising money through Just Giving for Christian Aid who work with some of the poorest people in the world and help folk of all faiths and none to find life before death www.christianaid.org.uk

Thank you and God bless you.

ITALIC BUT IMPORTANT PRINT Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
