My story

[p]Having turned 40, I've plunged headlong into a mid-life crisis, finally taken leave of my senses and decided to run an ultramarathon.[/p][p]I am doing so to raise money for Salmon & Trout Conservation, the leading UK charity campaigning for wild fish and where they live. Their goal is to ensure that UK waters support abundant and sustainable populations of wild fish. They fight to keep UK waters wild. It's a cause I care passionately about. [/p][p]Too much water is being taken out of our rivers, too much is being thrown into them and not enough is being done to protect our watery places. Salmon & Trout Conservation fight to change all that. They work to influence government policy, industrial practice and individual behaviour, to achieve measurable improvements to the state of the water environment, leading to healthier wild fish stocks, improved biodiversity and less pollution in our rivers, lakes and oceans. Their Riverfly Census has gathered vital, scientifically robust, evidence on the decline of insect populations across the UK.[/p][p]Protecting and standing up for life under the surface is a cause worth fighting for, both for current and future generations.
