During the coronavirus crisis, I am running my own "1,000km in 100 days" challenge fundraising for
Children with Cancer UK.
Click on this link to donate.

I am 61 and running and aiming to raise at least £5,000.
I am also trying to get others to do the same challenge, if I can.
It is quite gruelling schedule (a 10km a day average) and 1,000km is 621 miles and about:
 * London to Copenhagen or London to Berlin. 
 * Equivalent to London to Manchester (and back) twice!
 * The distance of Lands End to John O’Groats (but as the crow flies!)
 * and 24 marathons!

I anticipate I will have completed this around 22 July (100th day) subject to weather and an absence of injuries! 

Thus far, as of today 6 June I have run 549km in 45 running days (54 calendar days)
Premier League footballers (half my age!) complain about playing three matches in 7 days,  running circa 10km each game and that is over 90 minutes with a 20min break half way!

If any members of the forum or visitors would like to make a donation to this worthy charity , it will give me even more encouragement. 

Please note that all donations made via the donation button on the website will also be forwarded to this too.

Thank you.
