Story

2 years ago Seb (camerman) and Adam (producer) almost got lifted out of this world following a massive RTA on the outskirts of Mosul, while covering the offensive to rid ISIS from the city for CNN. 

Following months of Seb being in a coma and a lenghtly recovery, we are back on the road again, this time to raise money for the Rory Peck Trust that provides practical and financial support to freelance journalists and their families worldwide, assisting them in times of crisis and helping them to work more safely and professionally.

Together we are going to drag ourselves (about all we can manage) around the Amsterdam Mizuno Half Marathon - 2 years to the day that we both almost caught it. 

Please donate what you can to reach our target of £5000.
