Support my Race to Remember

This year I will be taking part in Race to Remember to raise vital funds for life-changing mental health treatment for veterans.

Combat Stress is the UK's leading charity for veterans' mental health. For over a century, they've helped former servicemen and women deal with issues like trauma, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Today, they provide support to veterans from every service and every conflict.

I’m taking on Race to Remember to help take vital steps towards ensuring veterans can get the support they need.

Thank you so much for your support.

1000 mile year

Thursday 15th Feb


I am doing something a bit different this year as I needed a change .

This is what lies ahead.

I am aiming to complete 1000 miles of races from February 11th 2024 til 11th Feb 2025. Each race must be at least a marathon or over, Ironman races can be included in the total.

My aim is to raise some money for Combat Stress.

I am not fast! But I am a stubborn bugger so will try my hardest not to pull out of any races.

 

So to the races: This year I am doing the following..

 

RACE 1: 11th Feb : Marriotts way marathon (26.2 miles) with a twist , I am running 10 k to the start and 10k home carrying a pack on my back so this will be a slow marathon…5 and half hours ish..

RACE 2: 3rd March: Hannington Hike  marathon (26.2 miles), this is a long distance walkers event so I may stop at a pub or two…

RACE 3: 13th April: Chester 100 mile ultra

RACE 4: 4th May: Pennine Barrier 50  mile ultra (hilly beast with the Yorkshire 3 peaks as part of the course)

RACE 5: 1st June: Maverick Peaks 50k ultra (starts in Bakewell)

RACE 6: 30th June: UK Ultimate Ironman

RACE 7: 6th July (1 week later!!): Odyssey Ironman St Neots (I crashed on this one last year and broke my bike )

RACE 8: 10-15th August….RACE ACROSS SCOTLAND…215 miles non stop ultramarathon with 100 hours time limit (my biggest race to date)

RACE 9: 12th October: Ladybower reservoir 50k ultramarathon

RACE 10: 19th October: Amberaid 50k ultramarathon (Peak district)

RACE 11: 9th November: Race to Remember in support of Combat Stress, 76km ultra (just under 50 miles) from Aldershot to Portsmouth

RACE 12: Jan 13th to 17th: Spine Challenger North..160 miles up the Pennine way in the heart of winter, deep snow,, ice, sub zero temperatures. I thought I’d leave the hardest one til last (time limit is 108 hours)….this is way beyond my comfort zone!!!

 

Having an incentive often helps and seeing as I've never attempted anything like this knowing that donations depend on me completing the challenge may  make the difference and help me to  keep going when it gets tough  

Thank you in advance.
