    0

    Throughout the whole of 2014 I achieved what many said was either impossible, or highly inadvisable. I ran the best part of 1,000km dressed in an extremely heavy and restrictive costume, and raised both many smiles and many pounds along the way. As I’d entered …

    Injured Trooper

    York – one of my favourite cities. I was looking forward to this run especially, although the incredible heat was once again a real challenge. Fortunately the support from everyone was amazing. Both the crowds lining the streets and fellow runners were all very helpful …
