Team Scotty's 2016/17 Challenge

Gemma Scott, craig scott

My page:

Hi, thanks for visiting our page.
Many of you are aware Craig & I's passion for raising money for Worldwide Cancer Research.
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 have run London Marathon in 2012, 2014 & 2015 as well as Liverpool Rock n Roll Marathon in 2015 raising over £7000 for this amazing charity.

We decided for 2016/17, what could we do to push the boundary and help raise even more money? We decided how about an ultimate challenge to raise the awareness even more.
We have decided to Run 10 Marathons, 1 Ultra Marathon & Various Half Marathons 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 - this is the next event.

8.Barcelona Marathon Spain 12/03/17.

9.Manchester Marathon UK 02/04/17 where we will be running with Craig's father who will be 65 and running his first marathon.

10. Milton Keynes Marathon 1/05/17 23/04/17.

11. Liverpool Rock N Roll Marathon 29/05/17.

We will finish the campaign on 17/06/17 by completing The Wall which is a 69 mile Ultra Marathon along Hadrians Wall.
We haven't stopped there though, pushing ourselves that bit harder we ran:
East Hull Harriers Hull 20 mile Race in 20/03/16 North Lincs Half Marathon 15/05/16
Dublin Rock n Roll Half Marathon 07/08/16
The Para's 10 mile Military Berker Race (Craig is running with a 35lb backpack) 04/09/16
York 10 Mile Race 08/10/16
More to be added....

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!
