Udall Challenge (Meon Half marathon, Portsmouth Marathon & Chester Ultra)
Running a half, full and ultra marathon for Dan's Fund For Burns because I’m honour of my close friends Jon & Ellie Udall
Dan's Fund For Burns is a registered burns charity, set up after the terror attack in Bali in October 2002. The fund aims to help burns victims, units and other burns causes e.g. burns camps and conferences in the UK.
Charity Registration No. 1098720
So as many of you will be aware our close friends the Udalls lives were tragically cut short earlier this year due to a horrific helicopter accident while celebrating their honeymoon in the US.
Both Jon & Ellie meant an awful lot to me and many people around them and I wanted to do something to honour their memory and help raise funds to support the Dan’s fund for burn charity.
I owe a lot to Jon to where I am in life, both in my personal and working life. I always looked up to him as a role model and always will.
So I’ve always been a keen runner and I’ve had a bit of time away from it recently but the challenge is -
- Meon Valley half marathon ( Sunday 16th September 2018 )
- Portsmouth Coastal Marathon ( Sunday 23rd December 2018 )
- Chester Ultra Marathon 50 Miles ( Saturday 2nd March 2019 )
This is a massive challenge but I will make it happen and would appreciate as much support as I can get from everyone!!!
I’ll keep you all posted on my training and updates after each event.
Thank you all so much
