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 and an ultra marathon to finish it off.

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.
