Event: Race to the Stones, from 10 July 2021 to 11 July 2021
We deliver sport and activity projects to improve the health of local communities


I have run a number of marathons already, but never an ultra, so this will be my first. Sponsor me to run 100km as part of Race to the Stones. 

I’ve always wanted to test myself over an ultra marathon distance. So far I’ve completed the longest races in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff and am booked in for Belfast this September, but I know this will be a completely different beast! Since 2019 I’ve been converted to trail running, as opposed to road running and over lockdown I have been lucky enough to get to know many wonderful local routes across the East Midlands. I am looking forward to racing across hills and fields across the ridgeway in the footsteps of romans.”

He is aiming to raise at least £1,000 for the Notts County Foundation, which it is anticipated will specifically go towards supporting local projects in the Meadows area of Nottingham. Ian went on to say “Lockdown has thrown bare many wide challenges within society, none more so than recognising the importance of positive mental health and tackling isolation and loneliness. Running has been my release over the past few years, my way of staying both physically, mentally, and emotionally strong. I want to be able to use this in order to raise money for others similar challenges.”

Over the coming months we at the Foundation aim to work much more closely with members of the meadows local community in order to engage, listen and support where we are most needed. This will include working in partnership with local community members on campaigns focused in on the importance of keeping positive mental health and tackling loneliness and isolation.
