Okay Steve, you do a bit of running, they said. So how do you fancy running across Britain with us this September? Six marathons in six days - 156 miles, give or take the odd detour - starting at Robert the Bruce's cave in Scotland and finishing at Ruthin Castle in north Wales? We'll take in the Lake District and the highest peaks in England along the way to keep it interesting. We'll provide the meals, and we'll even carry your tent for you - as long as you carry the rest of your gear yourselfTell me more, I said. Like can I retire if it gets too hard?
you can, they said. As long as you don't mind letting down those
schoolgirls in the biggest slum in Nairobi, the ones whose education
you'll be running to raise money for. Kids who know the real meaning of
words like 'tough' and 'challenge' - and half of whom, statistically,
won't see their 25th birthday.
And I'll add more about Trans Britain and me as the event approaches. In the meantime, please help get my fundraising off to a flying start by donating now.Thanks.
