Originally from Kraslava, Latvia, for the last seven years I have lived and worked in London. I am passionate about travel, reading and running.

The entirety of the proceeds will be donated to Giving for Latvia, a UK registered charity ( that provides aid to the Latvian children and parents who have suffered from emotional and physical abuse, and to those disadvantaged by age, disability, financial problems or other hardships.

Event details

My first ever half marathon

Although a keen runner, I have not attempted a half-marathon before. Other than that, I can run pretty much anywhere and any time - pictured here is my leisurely jog on Latvian country road two days before New Year, in -10C

Three practicalities to highlight:

1. No proceeds will be used to reimburse my travel, accommodation etc.

2. My employer Barclays will match up to £1000 of funds raised which means every pound, euro or dollar you donate could be potentially doubled!

3. Those fortunate enough to be in a higher tax bracket in the UK, look for UK Payroll Giving on your employer's intranet - that way every £1 donated will result in the charity receiving an extra 66%
