Story

As I celebrate my 50th year I've decided to challenge myself once again! My goal this time around is to run 50 kilometres over 5 x 10km timed runs so basically one 10km run for each decade.

I'm doing this to support the work of Release International, a charity also celebrating their 50th year. They are a Christian ministry that helps each of us engage with those facing persecution across the world for their Christian faith. They do this through raising awareness of their situation, encouraging prayer and by responding to their practical needs.

You can find out more about their important work including their 50th anniversary video at - https://releaseinternational.org/events/50th-anniversary/

The five 10 kilometre events I've chosen are -

1. Civil Service Capital Challenge at the Olympic Park (which I completed on the 16th May).
2. The London Vitality 10k - 28th May.
3. The Richmond Summer Riverside 10k - 21st July.
4. RAF 100 year Spitfire 10k at Colindale - 2nd September.
5. Bournemouth Supersonic 10k - 6th October.
