I promised that I would be running Hadrian's Wall in June 2019 but couldn't do it. Sadly, Meg and I both lost a parent each and too much time was spent in hospitals and not training. Olly and I smashed the Berlin Marathon in September for my 50th and the day was made even more special by Olly proposing to the gorgeous Catherine about 8 miles in. We have both decided to deliver on our promise of last year so will be running the 69 miles from the West coast of England to the east. Please give one more time - Ultra marathons are tough - I need the encouragement!
Please read on to see why we want to support Claire House and donate some money - please - it's 69 miles from Carlisle to Newcastle but if anyone wants to make it worth my while I'll keep going for an extra mile.
