Chris Lucas Trust

We fundraise for cancer research to cure RHAB Rhabdomyosarcoma

Charity Registration No. 1085775


I'm no stranger to the Coast to Coast, having cycled it in 12 hours in 2016 and then running it in 3 days through snow blizzards and minus temperatures as the finale to my 10,000-mile walk, run, ride challenge in December 2017.

On Saturday, June the 8th 2019 I take my next Coast to Coast crossing to an all new level by doing it BAREFOOT.

The route I will be following is Alfred Wainwrights Coast to Coast route that starts at St Bees Head on the west coast of Cumbria and finishes at Robin Hoods Bay on the east coast of North Yorkshire, some 195 miles of trail and mountains away.

I am aiming to do an average of 15 miles a day which doesn’t sound a lot but given the terrain and that I am doing it all barefoot, this will be an immense challenge both mentally and physically in itself.

This route is expected to take 13 days and I will be tracking live via the satellite network throughout the whole duration so you can follow this epic and challenging adventure of mine from the comfort of your own homes.

I have supported the Chris Lucas Trust for many years as they do truly amazing work in helping fund a cure for Rhabdomyosarcoma, a truly horrible and aggressive form of children's and teenage cancer, and I am asking for your help to support me in donating the price of a cup of coffee to help make a difference.

This challenge will test me to my limits both mentally and physically and your support (and a donation) will go a long way.

My Social Media channels are constantly updated with posts and videos of my adventures and the training I am already undertaking to get my feet (and mind) ready for this, the biggest challenge of my life.



Both accounts have the promo video of my BAREFOOT challenge as the pinned post and tweet and it will be great to get a follow and like here and there, as it gives me a boost and spurs me on to continue in my crazy fundraising efforts.

there is also a wealth of information on my website at
