On Sat 8th June I completed the Centurion SDW100 race, a 100 mile foot race from Winchester to Eastbourne along the South Downs Way. (https://www.centurionrunning.com/races/south-downs-way-100-2019)

Yep, that's right, 100 miles.
I'm hoping this is impressive/mad enough to encourage you to support me by donating to the Salisbury Hospice Charity. You can do this online here or by dropping some money in the collection tin at The Lamb Inn, Nomansland.
I've been supporting the Hospice Charity for a few years now and am forever grateful to them for the way they cared for my late wife Bea. I do these mad runs to make sure they can continue to provide that care in the future for others.
I'll be blogging about my races leading up to the big day here: https://forestgrumpblog.wordpress.com/
About Salisbury Hospice
It costs nearly £2.4m a year to run Salisbury Hospice. Some funding comes from the Government however Salisbury Hospice Charity aims to raise £1.5m a year to ensure vital services are maintained.
The hospice was able to help almost 1,000 people last year but would not have been able to do so without the funds raised by Salisbury Hospice Charity, funds which enable the hospice to continue to offer nursing and medical care, emotional and practical support, welfare advice, occupational and physiotherapy, complementary therapies, spiritual care and creative activities.
The service provided is free to patients and their families who may be cared for either in their own homes or through non-residential and inpatient services at the hospice. The support offered may be for up to a year or even longer in some cases.
