My story

[p]I have set myself a big challenge for 2018; I plan to run all 6 World Marathon Majors in the calendar year.[/p][p]These are the biggest and most renowned marathons. They are Tokyo 25/02/18, Boston 16/04/18, London 22/04/18, Berlin 16/09/18, Chicago 08/10/18 and New York 04/11/2018. I am aiming to run at least 5, if not the 6, in under 3 hours.[/p][p]I completed Tokyo in 2 56 15. So far, so good. London is going to be a major challenge in terms of a quick time, coming just 6 days after Boston.[/p][p]Update didn't manage the sub 3 hr in Boston (brutally cold wet and windy) or London v hot a recovery not good after Boston.[/p][p]Boston 3 10 [/p][p]London 3 18[/p][p]Berlin 2 55[/p][p]Chicago 2 51[/p][p]Just New York to go[/p][p]The challenge is a personal challenge completely funded by myself, but I would like to take the opportunity to raise money for 2 charities that I have supported in the past. One medically related and one which supports the developing world. All money donated will be split equally between both charities.[/p][p]Alzheimers society supports the fight against dementia, probably the biggest health challenge we face.[/p][p]Tearfund is a christian based charity working to end poverty in the developing world and responding to disasters when they occur.[/p][p]Thank you for reading and for your support.
