Story

Building on last years epic #20420 events doing over 1000 miles and running further than the equivalent from Nottingham to Rome I’ve decided to keep the fundraising going. Why? Well we have unfinished business!! - we had a really optimistic total of 20k to raise last year, celebrating 20yrs of The Children’s Bereavement Centre, with 20 events it all ran of the tongue nicely! The more I trained and the more publicity we got it looked like we may get close, we managed to raise just over 9k which was brilliant! & I thank each and everyone who had donated their hard earned cash! - however I still have a bee in my bonnet and won’t rest until I get them 20k - so I’ve decided to keep the challenges going…….

April 20th - 21st - x2 back to back 50K ultras at the UTA - Ultra Tour Arran (The Isle of Arran of the coast of Scotland) 

June 15th The Wall Carlisle - Newcastle 115k ultra - building in last years - I’m back again to beat my time 🤞🏻

July 7th - Running from my home Town Newark to Langar Airfield, do a 16,000ft Skydive then run back - covering around 40 miles on foot.

September 14th - Gb ultras Yr Wyddfa 100 Mile race - 

Spanning Snowdonia National Park & 5788m of Ascent over 100 stunning miles and over the beautiful mountains of Snowdonia Eryri!
