Up Hill Task

It's been a while since my last post (nearly a year in fact!), so I thought it was about time I updated everyone on my next challenge.

On the 24th April, I will be running The Three Peaks Race, which traverses the famous Yorkshire Dales Mountains of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside covering 24 miles including heights of 2,500 feet above sea level.

Then, on 9th May I will attempt to run the Leeds Half marathon in under 90 minutes before taking on the Full Yorkshireman fell marathon on 12th September with the aim of breaking into the top 5 pairs.

The reason I’m doing all this is to raise money for research into the causes and potential treatments for MS my sufferers. My brother Ben was diagnosed with MS nearly seven years ago now and has shown great strength and courage in dealing with the variety of unpredictable and debilitating symptoms that affect MS sufferers on a daily basis.

If you would like to make a donation, please visit: www.justgiving.com/uphilltask or see me for a sponsrship form.

I will be updating my blog regularly with training info pictures and the results of the races, so please pop back from time-to-time.

That is so nice of you. It is great that people can organize things and races to raise funds for MS. I personally believe is a very good deed and people should be encouraged by reading this. Some people Can’t stay on task and even though they want to participate in events like this, they don´t have the time or something always comes up.
Congratulations on your effort and good luck to you and your brother.
Cheers
