My Global Odyssey is to be the first known person to run an extreme  100k (62 miles) all 7 continents.  I have now successfully completed my goal.

I first started to raise funds for Alzheimer Scotland in 2013 when I ran a marathon and a 100k in Antarctica. I have continued to take on extreme running challenges to raise more funds running at the North Pole, the Atacama Desert, The Namibian desert and a frozen steppe in Mongolia.

In 2017 I got the idea for the Global Odyssey 100 - GO100 - to go on and complete 100k on the remaining continents and to make each one as hard and as challenging as I can. 

November 2013 I completed the Antarctic 100k. 

October 2017 I completed the GO100 Europe leg when I took on and the Grand Raid des Bogomiles (Carcassonne, France) event a 100k with a massive amount of ascent. 

August 2018 I completed the  Gobi GO100  challenge for the Asian leg.

January 2019 on the third attempt I completed the African GO100 challenge when I ran 100k in the Ounila valley in the low Atlas Mountains in Morrocco.

April 2019 I completed the stunning and gruelling Patagonia GO100 challenge in Argentina.

February 2020 I completed the Oceania GO100 challenge in Otago, New Zealand. 

I completed the final GO100 challenge on June 22nd 2022 is in Greenland for the North American Continent.

I am an ordinary person: a mum and wife and I work full-time. Running is my passion and I have always loved a challenge. I am also passionate about charity and often use my running to fundraise.

All the money that I raise will stay in Scotland, and specifically, is used on projects in Glasgow and the surrounding area.

All donations go direct to Alzheimer Scotland and my challenge trips are self-funded.

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.

So please consider digging deep and making a donation because every penny counts.
