My wife and I have had a long standing association with Ngoli village in Northern Zambia and have been able to partner with the charity FPZ to provide funds so that children from the village school can go onto High School and then, if they are good enough, to College.

Education is just about the only way that children from rural areas can break out of the poverty trap and often they go onto become teachers and technicians who help improve the social capital of the country. Please support these children to be able to get on in life.

We are looking to raise £500 to allow 1 child to be able to complete 1 year schooling at High School.

Event details

Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon

The LAMM is a 2 day mountain marathon for pairs of runners. You have to carry everything with you for both days of racing. This means packing your food, tent sleeping bag, waterproofs and clothes into a tiny sack weighing no more than 5kg and then racing in the hills until your lungs burst.

This will be my first race back from 3 months of injury (not ideal preparation) and my running partner is bursting with enthusiasm which will also be a struggle - he's a 15 year old county orienteer called Sam and this will be his first race over this distance. He's so young that I had to get special dispensation from the race organiser for him to enter, but the best thing is he's so small that he makes me feel tall and we might both have a decent night's sleep in my 1 man tent. Anyhow, please sponsor us and you can see if we make it onto the podium!
