Run the Coast

Elise Downing

My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/runthecoast

I'm going on a little run... around the UK coast, all 5000 miles of in fact. This journey will take 10 months and I'm running unsupported with my kit on my back.

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.
