I am running to raise money for the Shine Bright Foundation and Cancer Research UK, in memory of my dad, Dave Rowlands, who worked tirelessly to raise funds for CRUK over many years and who we lost in May, aged 75, to cancer. 

Event details

Columbia Gorge Marathon

I will be running my fifth marathon - it promises to be the most scenic yet, but probably also the most gruelling, both because of the 2,000ft of climb and because I am getting older and unfitter all the time.

Very belatedly, well done on the marathon Charlie. And enjoy your remaining time away.

Amazing, Charlie. However this donation is not in recognition of your run, more a thank you for the many snorts of laughter your FB posts invoke on dull London work-laden days. Have an excellent recovery!
