Story

In the quest for a challenge I've entered a 50km "ultramarathon" (that's 31 miles for the traditionalists).  I've been running for 18 months now but have never run a marathon so this is going to be a tough effort, but training is going quite well and distances building up nicely! The route is from Manchester City Centre to Sowerby Bridge in Yorkshire,  all along canals, like a gentle stroll in the countryside really :) In case that was all sounding a bit easy, I also have to carry some basic kit so need to run with a rucksack as well.

In a second fit of madness, if my legs still work i'm planning on running the Manchester Marathon a mere two weeks later (but lets just see eh....)

I've not really collected for charity before, but thought i'd raise a little cash for the Dudley based Action Heart charity, as my Dad has been helped by their centre.  And its in Dudley aye it.
