Soph's Marathon Double for Mind

Sophie McCurdy

My page:

In 2017 I am taking on my biggest challenge yet. I am running the Brighton AND London Marathons, two weeks apart on the 9th and 23rd April.

Most of you know by now why I run for Mind. I have Bipolar Disorder and have seen mental health conditions touch the lives of many of my nearest and dearest. I'm one of the lucky ones, but so many still need help. And as far as we've come, there is still a lot of ground to cover when it comes to mental health awareness, treatment and recovery.

I'll be covering 52.4 miles across the two races, and will be spending my time between now and Christmas building a base. On Boxing Day, my full training begins. It's a lot of hard work, time and milage, but I'm excited.

If you'd like to support me, pounds, pennies, hugs and encouragement are all welcome. I'm hoping to raise more than I've ever done before, to try and contribute in a small way to the lives of those who are struggling. You can donate here or get in touch on for other donation methods.

You can follow my journey on Twitter.

Thank you!
