Harry Moseley is an incredible young man. He is 11 years old and has an inoperable brain tumour. He is utterly selfless and has raised fortunes for brain cancer research. Harry tragically died in October and we want to ensure his amazing fundraising efforts are continued.
So this began when I decided that I wanted to try and run the Circle line (17 miles) to raise money for Harry. I mentioned it to my friend Shaun who said he wanted to run it with me. We put it on Facebook and Luke Butler, Martin Chapman, Mitch Wilson, Chloe Garrard, Becky Eighteen and Craig Gallacher incredibly also all wanted to run it and wanted to raise money for Harry's brilliant charity. Despite all of us being incredibly unfit we finished running the circle line on Saturday September 3rd! Despite only having 10 days of training!
We all felt we wanted to do more. So I pitched an idea to the 'tube runners' and said we should try and run every single tube line in London, passing every single stop, over the next 6 months. That is 450 miles, 12 lines, 270 stations and 7 very unfit runners. Over the next 26 weeks or so I will be running roughly a half marathon every week. Jon Myers has since decided he too wants to take on the challenge and on the 20th October he completed the Bakerloo line with us - a massive 23.8 miles (we got lost!). Thanks to Jon for getting involved. My friends will join me for as many runs as they can.
We want runners to run some of these runs with us. We will be putting up a schedule of our runs soon. One run that is happening is on Friday the 9th December - the Waterloo and City line, at just 1.3 miles it is our smallest run but we are hoping to pack the streets for Harry so please come and join us and get involved. Our first run (after the Circle line) was the Bakerloo line on the 20th October and we will be then running every week for the next 6 months. Come and join us! Importantly we want donations, we want to raise £10000 for Harry's charity.
Update: We ran the Waterloo and City Line on Dec 9th and had 40 attendees! Thanks to all those that came, we so appreciate it. Some of the people that turned up and ran - and raised loads of money - included Paul Hill, Susie Jackson-King, Neil Eighteen, Hamid Dukali, Simon Rollings, Valerie Grimes Mark Tanner, Ad O'Connor, the whole Whyley family, Topaz Garrard, Josh Williams, Craig Gallacher, Miranda Child Villiers, Jon Myers, Jamie Dewinter, Marrianne Canty, Matt Sawyer, Rob Sawyer and Nick Jellett. Plus many more - we appreciate all your support and hope you join us for more runs in the future :)
In the final run we have runners including Gary Spencer, Sarah Stallard, Mike Whyley, Jade Barnes, Simon Rollings, Ben Castrillon and many more - thanks for all getting involved! Jade has also helped us with quiz nights and the social media part of our challenge - thanks for keeping everyone updated!
Gopalakrishna Moni and his friends from RBS - Shyam and Saravanan ran part of the Chennai rail network to raise money and awareness for Harry's cause. A huge thanks to them :)
