Running 100 miles for Chairty

As any long term reader will know I was trying to run 100 miles in 24 hours, yes I am kind of crazy, but that race has been postponed till next year.

Corey my oldest son said he wanted to do something to raise some money for our local hospitals, he wanted to get the kids some new toys etc.

I said to go away and think about it and he did.

He said he wanted to run 100 miles to raise £100 for the local hospitals.

Just to be clear this is 100 miles before he returns to school.

So I agreed and created a Just Giving page for him. Before we had already completed the first run he had already got to his target.

So I have increased that to £500.

Raising £100 £500 for charity by running 100 miles.

Third run

This was a real struggle, neither of us had any energy to run and getting to 3 miles was an achievement. 

Too hot to run, we set off in early evening around 6:30pm but the sun was still too hot to run in. 

Corey hit pause right at the start of the run. All runners know if its not on strava it doesn’t count, while he did run further we are only counting the recorded part.

Good to get out and get some distance in. Corey only thought he was running 4 miles but we got in an extra 1.23. Was nice of a woman from the village who recognised him and cheered him on
