I'm James, I'm a pretty active person mostly as a competing amateur boxer but I also love to run. I tend to go out running by myself once a week or so. The furthest I've run by myself is 19 miles on a random Saturday, while that is a long way I've never taken on an actual competition or race. The company I work for, Michael O'Mara, is a great supporter of Link Age Southwark and they recently asked for volunteers to take on the Hackney-Half challenge and fundraise.  I decided to take up the opportunity to raise money for a wonderful charity doing something I already enjoy and also take part in my first race.

It's a great opportunity for me but I really need your support and donations to make this a fantastic event!
