Raising money for Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team and HospiceCare North Northumberland


Thank you for visiting my Just Giving Montane Spine Challenger fund raising team page.

I only took up trail running a few years ago, not just for the fitness side of things but needing something to help focus my mind mentally and nudge me out of some struggles I was having.

Hiking, Trail running and my Hiit gym classes have become a joy and helped me mentally so much.

After turning 50 I decided that I wanted to give myself a challenge, something to really focus my mind on. Having ran no further than a half marathon I thought maybe a full Marathon, until a good friend of mine gently nudged me towards joining them on the June 2022 Montane Spine Challenger, a 108 mile run along the Pennine way.

I have attempted the event twice now, sadly having to pull out in 2022 at 92miles and in 2023 at 62miles.

I have learnt so much on the last two events and with two of my good friends Paul & Nicola amazingly taking part with me ❤️with lots more hill training, weekly Hiit classes @ Real fitness in Alnwick, I am so much more better prepared, more determined than ever to not to be defeated and put this event to bed in 2024.

As part of this challenge I have also decided to go tea total for the next 12months until completing the event in June 2024

Running has helped me so much and with this challenge I wanted to give something back to two special charities.

Hospice Care North Northumberland

Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue
