To celebrate the 25th anniversary of TIC+, Claire and I set ourselves the challenge to run the equivalent of 25 marathons in a year. Our 655 mile challenge kicked off on Monday 1st July 2019 and will be completed by Tuesday 30th June 2020.

Why? Claire and I love to run…well most of the time. So what could be more obvious challenge for our 25th Anniversary than to run 25 marathons in a year?

We got our calculators out. OK. 655 miles divided by 52 weeks is 12.6 miles. So we each need to run 12.6 miles a week…how hard can that be? And just in case we get bored…let’s throw in the Cheltenham Half at the end of September! And so the 25 Marathons for 25 Years was born. ‘Hurrah’, we exclaimed enthusiastically, in January.

In June with the start is nearly upon us we might be forgiven for feeling slightly nervous. Through past experience I know I throw myself headlong into a running challenge with an enthusiasm defying my ability and then hobble for weeks after. And Claire….well, she’s known for agreeing to bonkers challenges and only then realising what she’s let herself in for (London to Paris bike ride? Sure! Loch Ness Marathon? Why not! You get the picture….)

Why are we doing this? At TIC+ we believe that every child and young person in need deserves someone to talk to; regardless of whether their family can afford it.

Please do support us if you are able:

£5 will let us answer a call from a young person in need

£7.50 covers room hire for one counselling session

£25 covers the cost of one online counselling platform license

£53 provides a one-to-one counselling session for a young person
