We help people with ME/CFS to understand and survive their illness


I am 18 years old and am currently attempting to set a new world record for the youngest person to ever run from Land's End to John O'Groats. I am wishing to complete the ultra running event in 30 days. By the end of the trip I will have run 38 marathons in 30 days. I am going to be doing this solo with various family members acting as a support crew, ferrying me from stop points to the accommodation for the night and back the next day.

I have a few reasons that are causing me to partake in this challenge. One was sparked from a Kung Fu Panda quote- 'If you only do what you can do, you will never be better than what you are.' I have always been up for a challenge climbing Kilimanjaro and cycling the coast to coast bike ride on 3 separate occasions amongst various other extreme sports and mountaineering excursions. I was thinking of cycling this distance, however, as I knew I could do it I decided to challenge myself further by running instead. 

The second reason is that I wanted to raise awareness of ME across the country, by running throughout the entire UK I do not see how there would be a more suitable approach whilst also satisfying my desire for a physical test.

Thank you very much for visiting my fund raising page. I cannot tell you how truly grateful I am of any donation. It really touches me and the ME Association knowing that there is so much support.
