My story

[p]It has been such a privilege to be invited to be a Trustee of Map Action and a very humbling experience to work with people who use their mapping and GIS expertise to help in humanitarian disasters across the world. And their expertise has never been more needed as they direct it to help fight the Covid 19 epidemic both in the UK and overseas, whilst at the same time continuing to help in other humanitarian relief activities. At the very time when MapAction is being called on to help as never before, fund raising opportunities such as the London Marathon are closed for very understandable reasons. We are so grateful as a charity for having the opportunity to join the 2.6 challenge as an alternative way to raise much needed funds at this time. I cannot pound the lanes as we are in self-isolation for health reasons, but I am going to try to complete the Marathon distance on my exercise bike. I know I am capable of doing a half Marathon distance on it: wish me luck in an attempt to complete the whole distance before the challenge closes on 1st May, even if I have to do it in bite-size pieces! [/p][p]I am pleased to be able to report that on 26th April I managed to cycle the whole marathon distance of 26.2 miles (42.4 kilometres) on my exercise bike. It took me a total of 2 hours 3 minutes 33 seconds. I took a pit stop at the mid-way point, effectively doing it as 2 half marathons. I was totally knackered but very proud that I managed to complete the entire marathon distance on the day. [/p]

Where there's a will there's a way.....and having a map - and a compass - is so important!
