Story

Hello and thank you so much for taking the time to visit my page.

In October  2019, I will attempt to break the official Guinness World Record for the most consecutive days to run an ultra-marathon distance (female). Because I'll be running my 50KM ultras on a running track, I'll also be chasing down the world record for the number of standard distance track marathons run on consecutive days.  I'll be doing both ON A 400M RUNNING TRACK!

My attempt will see me loop a running track 124 times a day, every day for 12 days.

The current official Guinness World ultra-marathon record is 9 days whilst the current record of 11 marathons on 11 consecutive days for the standard distance track marathons is held by Kayln Jolivette from Ohio.

My attempt, which will take place on the track at The Pickaquoy Centre in the Orkney Islands, is in aid of Wellbeing of Women - a brilliant charity working super hard to transform the lives of women and their families through much needed research and training.

My aim is to raise as much money as possible, so that together we can fund research into the menopause. My hope is that my 12 Menopause Ultra-Marathons will raise awareness of the menopause, the symptoms many women experience and to encourage others to think about how they can create healthy lifestyles to help them through this period of their lives - and beyond.

I'm now training really hard to make sure that I succeed in my attempt, and I will be pushing my body to the limit - all for this amazing cause. I ask you to give generously because every single woman in all of our lives will, at some point and on some level, experience the menopause. It's a given. So, please join me and Wellbeing of Women as we work to better understand this deeply personal experience.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe . Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to Wellbeing of Women. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity. Please remember to gift aid as that makes a huge difference.

Thank you!
