Team story

[p][b]295 kilometres. 31 stages. 24 hours. 6 runners.[/b][/p][p]We did it! After 27.5hrs we finally made it to the Thames Barrier at 11.30am on Sunday 25 July, having set off just after 8.00am the day before. It was an incredible experience - exhausting, but hugely rewarding - and the whole team took a massive amount of inspiration and motivation from the generosity of everyone who has sponsored us. [/p][p]You can relive the whole thing, from start to finish via our shared album: [url=][/url][/p][p]Thank you from us all.[/p][p]Will, Dan, Will, Mark, Tim, Adam[/p][p][br][/p][p]In essence, that's it - running a long way in a relatively short space of time. [/p][p]To distract us from the challenges we have faced in the wake of the covid pandemic, our team of 6 has been putting to use the once daily outdoor exercise opportunity to train to run the length of the Thames, from The Source just outside Cirencester to the Thames Barrier. [/p][p]The plan is to complete the 295km as a non-stop relay, and do it in as close to 24hrs as we can. To make it 'easier', we have broken down the distance into 31 stages of approximately 10km and will tackle each stage in turn. Each of us will run 5 individual legs, with the hope that we are all still standing to run the final 2.5km stage together. By the time we reach the Thames Barrier, everyone will have run roughly 50km, and done so with the added challenges of having limited sleep and travelling between the start of each stage in a cramped car with 5 other blokes. Suffice to say, none of us is expecting it to be easy.[/p][p]This has been a long time coming. Conceived in 2019. Cancelled in 2020. Postponed once already in 2021, we are excited to finally get to start the run on 24 July 2021 and we would love your support.[/p][p]We know everyone has given a lot to charity over the last 12 months, and all of them worthy causes. The British Heart Foundation is a cause that means a lot to us, and whose message and work is important to a number of our families. Whatever you feel you can give us in support of this challenge, we are hugely grateful for your donation. Now we have to earn it.[/p][p]Wish us luck![/p][p]Will, Dan, Will, Mark, Tim, Adam[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
