My story

[p]UPDATE - Run completed! Thanks to everyone who supported both on the day and with messages and donations, it has been a fantastic experience and a great day's running, starting at 8am we finished 46.5 miles later at 5.30pm![/p][p]Photos below L-R top; Bridge over the River Test, running with Zoe along the river in Romsey, family photo at the finish[/p][p]L-R bottom; Me & Mum just over halfway, The Fantastic Support Crew (Kate, Ben, Tom, Kevin, Penny, Jo), Inkpen Beacon at 8am at the start[/p][p]As I won’t be running the London Marathon this year, I wanted to do something to mark what would have been my dad's (Rex) 75th birthday in May and support Lepra who are celebrating their 95th Birthday this year. So, the plan is to run the Test Way starting in Berkshire and finishing at the coast in Hampshire on Sunday 26th May (Late May Bank Holiday Weekend). The Test is one of Hampshire’s finest chalk streams and world famous for its superb trout fishing, which was one of Rex’s great passions. It will be quite a challenge to complete the 45-mile route in a day but that is my aim and it would be great to have as many people involved as possible. The Test Way is split into 8 sections ranging from 3 to 9 miles if anyone would like to run or walk part of the course with me and there are at least 9 pubs along the route providing a more comfortable spectating option! I am planning to start at Inkpen in Berkshire at 8am, finishing at Eling Tide Mill in Southampton (Totton) at about 5pm where we hope to have some celebratory food and drink![/p][p]All the best, Tom[/p]
