Tall, dark, handsome.....Oh this is a fundraising site oops!

Basically, I fancy a challenge!!  And as a keen environmentalist and a running enthusiast I saw no better activity to not only challenge myself but to also raise funds for a great cause.


Event details

Running Wales for Size of Wales

This challenge, running the length of Wales will involve running from the nation's northernmost point (Llanbadrig) to its southernmost point (Rhoose).  This is approximately 193 miles across rugged and spectacular terrain in which I hope to complete in 4-7 days.

Thing is.....I won't be doing this alone, my trusty companion Stanley, a border collie cross, will also be joining me for part of the run!

I enjoy running, but my preferred distance is 6-10 miles twice a week, so this is not going to be easy!

My first attempt failed after a 1/3rd of the distance - damaged some ligaments in my foot and ankle :( Though it still stings I will do it all again!  I will succeed even if it means more walking and utilising my bicycle. Our great country deserves all the attention it gets and every penny raised will be my push to finish. I will do this!
