Hi, thanks for visiting our page.

Worldwide Cancer Research fund research projects around the world  even locally at Hull, which are aimed to find a cure for all forms of Cancer. Cancer knows no boundaries and fortunately neither do we!

We decided to take on an ultimate challenge to raise the awareness & raise money for this worthy charity.

11 Marathons & 1 Ultra Marathon on 2 continents in 14 months.

 
1. Manchester Marathon, UK 10/04/16 - We achieved a 10 minute PB finishing in 3hrs 52min.

2. Liverpool Rock N Roll Marathon, UK 29/05/16 - tough conditions but achieved 4hrs 6 min.

3. The Lady Bower Trail Marathon UK 18/06/16 - 1900 ft climbed an amazing trail run completed in 4hrs 28min.

4. Robin Hood Marathon, UK 26/09/16 - 4hrs 10 mins 

5. Toronto Marathon Canada 16/10/16 - This was a tough marathon. Our flight was cancelled so we arrived 36 hours before the race. There was freak weather 26 degrees and 90% humidity. Gemma developed a chest infection on the flight going out too. We both finished the marathon Craig 4hr 3 mins & Gemma 5hrs.

6. Las Vegas Rock N Roll Marathon USA 13/11/16. This was amazing a night marathon running on the strip. We completed this in 4hrs 24 minutes.

7. The Christmas Cracker Canal Marathon Leeds 04/12/16 - We both completed this in PB times

8. Barcelona Marathon Spain 12/03/17 - First of 2017 we completed this in quite warm weather.

9. Manchester Marathon UK 02/04/17 - We both got amazing times and PB's at this marathon 3:37 Craig & 3:42 Gemma. Gemma also got a good for age for London Marathon next year.

10. Madrid Rock N Roll Marathon 23/04/17 - 32 degrees heat plus hills we sucessfully completed this under 4.5 hours.

11. Liverpool Rock N Roll Marathon 29/05/17 - We both finished in awesome times 3:51 Gemma & 3:29 Craig.


We will finish the campaign on 17/06/17 by completing The Wall which is a 69 mile Ultra Marathon along Hadrians Wall.

We are dedicating this challenge in memory of those who are no longer with us and my Mum who has just been diagnosed with Lung Cancer. Cancer has affected both our families in such tragic ways so this is our way of giving back.
Please help us make the difference & get one step closer to beating this terrible life threatening disease!
