Ben's Ridgeway Challenge

Ben Pine

My page:

Welcome to my Ridgeway Challenge Charity Page!

I am going to attempt an 86 mile hilly race along the full length of the Ridgeway in August 2016. The goal will be to finish in less than 24 hours, but I have up to 26 hours if necessary. This is 36 miles further than I have ever run before.

This is a particular test for me as I was born with club feet - severely twisted feet, one was on backwards. I have been running for many years now and overcome many obstacles, but this will be by far the greatest.

To help motivate me I am going to raise money for Sue Ryder for this challenge. They are a fantastic organisation who provide help in many ways, in particular to people near the end of their lives. Please give generously as every pound will spur me towards my goal.

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.
