Story

We are attempting to run the Lake District ultramarathon in aid of a Bit of a Break. This event will take place on the 8th of June and we will be running 100k through the hilly Lakes.

A Bit of a Break are a charity who source and gift holidays for people living with terminal illness, giving families a chance to spend time with their loved ones in beautiful places. This is a charity that is close to our hearts as Beth's mum has a stage 4 cancer diagnosis and when Lucy was very young, her mum passed away from the illness. Subsequently, the charity was set up by members of Lucy's family.

Neither of us have ever ran more than 30k so this is a big challenge! We would be hugely appreciative of any donations however big or small.

A Bit of a Break is a portfolio of unfilled time in self-catering cottages to offer families dealing with terminal illness. Our aim is to continue to increase the number of stays so that we can open-up the chance of a short break to growing numbers of people. It is inspired by Angela Sturgeon.
