My story

[p]2020 has been thrown out of kilter, and now we're under further LockDown restrictions it's proving tough for everyone. Bigmoose are an amazing local enterprise, and have been helping people in Cardiff hugely over the past 3 years. Their work is ever more important, as they help support the mental health and well-being of those in need. [/p][p]With a lack of fundraising opportunities so far in 2020, I've decided to make the most of LockDown conditions and attempt the first known circumnavigation of the Cardiff Border on foot*. The border is circa 50-60 miles long, crosses mountains, rivers, seas and roads, and will throw up a hefty 5,000ft of climbing along the way too. I'll be attempting to run the entirety of the route in a day. [/p][p]Whilst raising money for Bigmoose, I also want to prove that we can more than survive these difficult times and we can still reap the benefits of the great outdoors even when locked down. [/p][p]With finances even tighter these days, please don't worry if you can't spare any money. If you're able to, please lace up your trainers and get outside yourself on the 1st November, I want to inspire as many people as possible to get outside too. [/p][p][br][/p][p]Oh, and as it's the first of November, I'll also pledge to dress as Magnum PI if I get within 10% of my fundraising target....[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]*based on zero research into whether or not anyone else has run it before. If it turns out they have, I'll try and beat their time...[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
