Story

Running Marathons / Ultras since 2009 raising money for Help for Heroes. 90+ and counting...

2015's Challenge

- 5 x 100 mile races - Thames Path, Enduroman, Mohican (Ohio), The Joust, St Oswald's Ultra

- 100th official race of marathon distance or longer

- Marathon Guinness World Record attempt (fastest marathon dressed as a boxer)

And 15 or so regular marathons / ultras. 

I'm continuing to raise money for our brave Heroes and Heroines, with every penny raised going to Help for Heroes!

Previous highlights:

The big challenge for 2014 was 'Only Fools & Heroes'. Running the Paris & New York marathons as well as a 300 mile run from Peckham to Lands End dressed as Batman!

2013's test was a 300 mile soap-inspired run in May. I set out from the Eastenders set at Elstree, running North to Yorkshire to visit Emmerdale then headed West to drop-in on Weatherfield and Corrie, before completing my run in Hollyoaks. It was great to meet so many small screen legends and receive so much wonderful support along the route!

Gavin & Stacey Marathon - 205 miles from Gavin's Billericay to Stacey's Barry Island

Stadia Marathon - Wembley>Lords>Twickenham>Wimbledon>Crystal Palace

4ootball Marathon - 100 mile solo run between 4 football league grounds

Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Thanks for your interest, and hopefully your support.

Richard
