I'm enthusiastic about running, European politics, history and communication. I'm also aware of the devastating effects of rape and sexual violence as weapons of war, notably during the collapse of Germany in WW2 and in the Balkans during the disintegration of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. And as a 'professional' communicator I understand how important the human face is to convey meaning, emotion and identity and consequently how impairing it must be to live with facial disfigurement.  These disparate interests and insights come together with Running: Me Running EU, my attempt to do some good for RSVP and Changing Faces. These two small but vital charities are each led by inspiring individuals who in turn have inspired me to create this challenge. Thank you for supporting me.

Event details


I'm going to attempt to run in all 28 countries of the European Union before Britain leaves at 11pm on 29 March 2019. In each country I'll aim to run with local running groups and clubs, taking part in organised races when I can. Wherever I go, I'll tell people about this crazy challenge, the reasons why it's important to me and about the work of RSVP and Changing Faces. Please help me support these two fantastic charities.
