So now that my 50th is creeping up on me, I have decided to hit it head on and run a few marathons for 3 charities that are close to my heart.

Having done a few runs and started this running lark a few years ago I decided as I'm now reaching the magic 50 years young to do something a bit special (mad), so from March 24th 2018 onwards in the aid of 3 charities that are close to my heart I’m going to run 12 marathons.

These 3 amazing charities are small ones but do a lot of good in the community and will be benefiting from an equal share in any donations and well worth having a look at.

Thistle Foundation

Boy’s Brigade

The entries for the marathons and the approximate 5 pairs of trainers that I'll go through will be paid for by me and not from any of your kind donations

3 of these marathons are going have running support from my amazing wife Jane, Mark Day / Moray Paterson, Lindsay Mitchell-Henry and Andrew Dancer from work and outside friends to fund raise from bake sales, bucket shaking to support me and the great causes.

It was really bugging me that your on screen total was £1 shy of a round number so thought I'd push it over. ;) Well done and good luck, you're nuts.
