My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

My challenge is unusual, I think it's fair to say it's unique. I am running 26 marathons, in alphabetical order, in 26 different countries. I have waited until I have progressed well into the challenge, I needed to make sure I could run marathons, before asking people to donate.

I started in Athens, the race actually began at Marathon, so it seemed the perfect way to kick off this challenge! Then came Bermuda, Cyprus, Dusseldorf, Edinburgh, Finistere, Guernsey, Hageland, Istanbul Jerusalem. Kharkiv, Lima, The Midnight Sun in Tromso, Novi Sad, Ostrava, Podgorica, Queenstown, The Reggae Marathon in Jamaica, Seville, Treviso, Utrecht, Victoria Falls, Warsaw, Xiamen and Yangon. Now there is just one to go, Zurich
