My story

[p]Hope House and Ty Gobaith are amazing in the support they give to children and young people with serious illness and life limiting conditions across North Wales, Shropshire and Cheshire – But they can’t do it without our help…[/p][p]With this in mind and as a father of four, I am committed to raising money for them and will run 1,600 miles this year in marathons and other challenges to raise sponsorship.[/p][p]In 2019, this feat of endurance will see me clocking up the miles all across the UK, from the Twin Piers 10K in January, Manchester Marathon in April, Lake Vyrnwy Half Marathon in September and I am considering dusting off my Santa suit and practising my best Ho Ho Ho for the Santa Dash in Flintshire, at the end of the year to round it off.[/p][p][b]Why am I doing it?[/b][/p][p]It’s because of the outstanding support and vital services that Hope House and Ty Gobaith give to children, young people and their families. And if we can support them and can give even a moments relief – then it will be worth it.[/p][p][br][/p][vmgvideo class="ql-video" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/4IuwrWDrBW0?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="true"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p][b]My Progress so far[/b][/p][p]January – Twin Piers 10k - Completed in 41 minutes 20 seconds[/p][p]February – Village Bakery Wrexham Half Marathon - Completed in 1 hour 30 minutes 6 seconds (P.B.)[/p][p]March - Wrexham Running Festival 20 Miles - Completed in 2 hours 25 minutes 40 seconds (P.B.)[/p][p]April - Manchester Marathon - Completed in 3 hours 21 minutes 52 seconds (P.B.)[/p][p]May - Chester Half Marathon - Completed in 1 hour 28 minutes 30 seconds (P.B.)[/p][p]May - Deganwy Dash 5 mile - Completed in 32 minutes 14 seconds (P.B.)[/p][p]June - Runfest Rhyl Half Marathon - Completed in 1 hour 30 minutes 2 seconds[/p][p]July - Alderley Edge 10k - Completed in 40 minutes 37 seconds (P.B.)[/p][p]August - North Wales Half Marathon - Completed in 1 hour 38 minutes 36 seconds[/p][p]September - Lake Vyrnwy Half Marathon - Completed in 1 hour 28 minutes 57 seconds[/p][p]October - Yorkshire Marathon - Completed in 3 hours 20 minutes 53 seconds (P.B.)[/p][p]November - Conwy Half Marathon - Completed in 1 hour 31 minutes 20 seconds[/p][p]Total runs so far (including training): 217[/p][p][b]Total miles so far: 1487 miles[/b][/p][p][b]Total miles left to run: 113 miles[/b][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
