My story

[p]Hi,[/p][p]Those of you that recognise the name will know that I have taken place in the Virgin London Marathon for the past 2 years to raise funds for Twinkle Trust Animal Aid, a charity that has become close to my wife and my heart, this is a charity run entirely by unpaid volunteers who give up a huge amount of their time to help in many ways.[/p][p]We have had quite a successful 2 years having had entry places, but I did not have a confirmed place for 2019, so my kind wife Gill suggested we look elsewhere, and that's when the half marathon in the sand dunes of Corralejo popped up, so as you can guess that's the next challenge.[/p][p]This is going to be a very different type of event for me (especialy considering I wasn't even a proper runner till the London Marathon came up) and will take me off hard surfaces onto loose and moving sand and stones, this along with the heat and humidity will make this a very hard event, although it will be made easier for me knowing that I am only doing this for a few hours, not having to try and survive in this environment as a feral cat, sometimes also trying to bring up kittens so needing to go hunting for food and water[/p][p]We are looking forward to attending this event on Twinkles home ground, to raise funds, awareness and give everyone that can a chance to meet up and socialise.[/p][p]As usual we would like to raise as much as possible so that more of the feral, sick and abandoned cats on the island can benefit from the great care that Twinkle gives the cats.[/p][p]We also have a Facebook page where you can follow the build up to the event, which you can find at [/p][p] [url=https://www.facebook.com/Ryan-Christie-Dunes-of-Corralejo-12-marathon-206157963517277/][b][u]Ryan Christie Dunes of Corralejo 1/2 marathon[/u][/b][/url][/p][p].[/p][p]So if you are on the island on the 3 November please come and join us for the morning. [/p][p]We are trying to organise a get together at a location in Caleta in the late afternoon/evening, once confirmed we will post an update on location and time etc. [/p]
