Alice's Half Marathon
Running for this fantastic Sussex based charity. Run entirely by trustees and volunteers, every penny raised goes directly to where it's needed most
Raising money for
Venkatraman Memorial Trust
Anyone who knows me, when I tell them about this challenge, replies either with ‘What?!’ or ‘Really?!’. This shouldn’t be a surprise; I am far more likely to be found running up a bar tab (or even running a bar) than doing any actual running….in fact when I started my training 3 months ago I hadn’t run at all – with the odd exception of being late for public transport – since cross country at school...it’s been a while!
So why now? Back in October the lovely @Alex Smallman mentioned she was hoping to get a group together to run this event in order to raise money for this fantastic cause and asked if I was in. Hearing ‘half’ I thought “it can’t be that hard!” and with my interest piqued I found out more about the charity, and started wondering if this was something I could do...and here we are!
Back in October I couldn't run 2 miles...so let's see shall we?!
Brighton Half Marathon 2018
The Brighton Half Marathon takes a fantastic and picturesque route…and if I can focus on that (and raising some fabulous funds!) rather than pace and breathing I will be a very happy girl! 13.1 miles along the seafront takes in the piers, the marina, the grand and the lagoon at Hove – which ought to keep me out of trouble for a couple of hours at least!
Training for this over the last 3 months has seen sleet, black ice, howling winds and lots and lots of rain. Though in fairness there has been the odd beautiful sunset or sunrise, and the knowledge of raising money for this brilliant charity to spur me on.
The charity itself is run entirely voluntarily, meaning every single penny raised with this event will go directly to where it’s needed the most. You can find out more about the children and the community that will be helped by visiting their website http://www.venkattrust.org.uk/ I will happily run as best I can - something I never thought I would say – all I ask is that you help me to raise some much needed cash for this brilliant cause.
