Dave Thornton, Harry Sloan and Andy Brooks are three aged
running enthusiasts from Derbyshire with a combined age of 174. On 27/28 June 2015 they entered the record books by completing a gruelling feat that nobody has ever achieved before. They ran the length of Derbyshire non-stop and off-road – 100 miles of mud, rocks and hills.

In addition to showcasing Derbyshire as one of the best
places on the planet to get out for a run, they aim to raise awareness of the benefits to mental wellbeing that can be gained from running/jogging/walking in
the great outdoors, and raise funds for a local charity - Derbyshire Mind.

Derbyshire Mind is an independent local charity which
delivers a variety of services to support those experiencing or caring for someone with a mental health problem – something which affects 1 in 4 people in
the UK.
