Simon and Tom run the Lakes

Welcome to our page. We're teaming up this year to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research all year (almost). 

The first goal is to run the Lakes in a Day ultramarathon on October 13th, a 50-mile run across the entirety of the Lake District from top (Caldbeck) to bottom (Cartmel) over whatever happens to be in the way - in this case, Blencathra and Helvellyn amongst other things! But we don't just want to do it; we'd like to run it in somewhere around 15 hours. 

Obviously, this is going to be horrendous. So we've organised an almost year-long training programme which will take in two other achivements. 1) The Calderdale Trail marathon on June 3rd. 2) A training programme that will see us pass 2,018 k each of running in 2018. 

It's fair to say that it's going to be a challenging year, but worth it for an excellent cause (and a significant sense of achievement at the end of the year!)

If you think that all sounds sufficiently mental, then we hope you will support us with a small donation. We will update this page regularly with progress, and Simon will be writing a weekly blog to document, amongst other things, the long Sunday runs (link to follow).
