Hello Everyone!

On the 25th June 2021, Ice Chick and I set off again from Sussex, UK on our quest to reach Kathmandu in Nepal! I may be 75, but these legs have got plenty of adventure left in them yet!

As you may know, Ice Chick and I originally started this adventure in 2018, making it all the way through Europe to Turkey. I was halfway across the beautiful country of Turkey when Covid-19 hit Europe meaning that my only option was to return to the UK and rethink my route to Kathmandu.

After much planning (and a quick mini adventure from Lands End to John o' Groats) Rosie Runs to Kathmandu was reborn! This time, I made it as far as Norway before having to return home to the UK due to illness and the current situation in Russia. But that won't stop me! 

Over the next six months, I'll be resting up and continuing my recovery. I will be taking it slowly, completing short training runs around the UK until I feel well enough to continue my journey to Kathmandu. The situation in Russia and my ongoing illness have made things slightly more complicated this year, but that doesn't mean I'm going to give up!

I am taking on this challenge to support the work of the fantastic charity PHASE Worldwide who work with remote Nepalese communities. 

Thank you so much for supporting me and the wonderful people of Nepal!
