What began as a challenge to run and cycle across Europe has grown into a series of increasingly punishing adventures. Following a successful 5 months in Europe, raising £4K for the Bristol Heart Institute, I have set my sights on some greater challenges in Asia, and will continue to support the BHI.
In 2019 I plan to cycle across India, run 700kms across Sri Lanka, run 3,000kms across Japan, cycle through Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore before a final ride across Australia!
Between April and November 2018 I cycled over 11,000km across Europe to run in seven marathons in support of the Bristol Heart Institute - a hospital that provides outstanding care to thousands of patients each year. (I also covered the 'three peaks' challenge on the way from Bristol to Edinburgh as a bonus!).

I’m supporting Above and Beyond’s Bristol Heart Institute (BHI) appeal which is raising funds to help provide vital new equipment, the latest treatments and surgical techniques and invest in research at the BHI. The BHI supports thousands of patients every year and I am particularly indebted to the high-quality care and support the amazing staff provide. I’ve been an outpatient at the Heart Institute for almost 10 years and underwent two operations as a baby at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. I'm hoping to raise oodles of cash towards the appeal via an epic transcontinental challenge.
