Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The Fundraising is continuing until the target is exceeded!

It started with a very long run.....Read on for info of the Dragonrun1027 challenge that took place in Spring 2012....

On 5th May 2012, Arry completed a run of over 1027 miles within 6 weeks (over 39 back to back marathons). In doing so she became the first person ever to run the entire true perimeter of Wales on the newly launched Wales Coast Path and Offa's Dyke Path.

The challenge was carried out in memory of Arry's parents who passed away in 2007 and 2009.

The run was over some of the toughest trails in the UK and involved ascents and descents of over 40,000m (4 x Everest). It was also carried out in a period of freak weather conditions, starting with a heatwave, moving into sub zero temporatures and then running in the wettest April ever recorded. I think that kind of sums up how difficult a challenge this was!

The biggest challenge however is raising the £25K total for the two chosen charities, Velindre Cancer Centre and Gozo CCU Foundation. This page enables you to donate online to Velindre!
