Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

This summer I will be taking on one of the biggest physical challenges of my life.

I have entered 'Le Grand Trail du Canigó 2018" a 38 mile race up a sacred Catalan mountain named Le Canigou. The race includes a 3500m ascent!

I am very familiar with the region, I have been visiting since I was 10 years old. I have been aware of the race for a long time and it's something I have always wanted to do.

This year I decided to do it.

Having spent 5 years training as a competitive sprinter, my body is not built for endurance. I have three months to transform my fitness and physique into something that will be able to handle a 12+ hour endurance event.

I am hoping to complete the race in around 12 hours, this would be a fairly respectable time.

I will be raising money for Mind Charity because raising awareness about #mentalhealth is incredibly important to me. I believe the modern world is making us sick, both physically and mentally. I am fascinated by methods that reset our bodies to their natural state like sleep, movement, intermittent fasting, cold water therapy and reconnecting with nature.
