Hi Everyone

Once a year I select an event in order to raise money for Bowel Cancer West. This charity remains close to my heart, due to the close family members and friends who have been affected by this disease.

I have decided to embark on a Backyard Ultra event in Portland starting on May the 28th.

For those who don't know anything about what a Backyard Ultra is, it entails a loop of 4.2 miles, which sounds easy right? But the aim of a Back Yard event is to run until you can't run anymore, with 24 hours being my ultimate goal!

I would love it if people could take a guess at how many loops of the 4.1667 mile course I can complete, and possibly suggest you sponsor your guess with 50P OR £1 per lap.

To give you an idea, last year I managed 21 hours / laps.

If you would like to give this a go yourself, I would love to share that experience with you in September (I will be at it again!) at THE DEVON & CORNWALL BACKYARD ULTRA.

Thank you for your support.
