Why Combat stress…


 Last year I made a decision to try and be less fat. I got on the treadmill and attempted to run. A few minutes later I was blowing out my backside. I pushed on, and thought I had achieved my goal when I could run for 30 minutes again.  Then some bright spark suggested I run a marathon.  The slightest sniff of a challenge meant I signed up for the Manchester marathon, with no comprehension of the scale of the physical challenge for a fat bastard like me. 

In October I completed that goal! Thank you to all who sponsored me. 

So why not up the game??

The same bright spark suggested an Ultra Marathon - 50ish miles.  Thanks Nick.

The event is on November 13th.


So now the important bit. I think you should share the pain with me, just in your wallet instead of your legs.


I am running for combat stress.


Combat stress is a charity who help former servicemen and women deal with issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression. 

They provide specialist treatment and support for veterans from every service and conflict to give them hope and a future.


Adam, my step son, was a Corporal in the Royal Dragoon Guards. He completed two tours of Afghanistan, and was awarded the NATO meritorious medal. After his second tour, unbeknown to Sarah and most of the people closest to him, he received counselling for a year provided by the Army. Outwardly Adam always showed confidence, spirit, and was the centre of any group he was in. 

On his 25th birthday, soon after his counselling ended, he lost the battle many didn’t know he was fighting, and took his own life. Sarah lost her beautiful son, and our girls lost their brother. 

This is why the work Combat Stress supports is so important. 

So dig deep, sponsor me, and I promise to supply pictures of a fat bloke running!
