EQUINOX RUN - Camel Trail - Sat. 26th Sept.
My next home spun 'event' is this coming weekend I'll be aiming to do a 12 hour run along the Camel Trail to see how far I can get starting at sunrise 07.11 Saturday morning til sunset 19.08.
I'd love to be able to get 56.4 miles in = 2 marathons, but might struggle. Does anyone fancy popping out to see, run with or support me?
Schedule - Strart - Borough Arms to Wenford and back - Padstow and back - Wenford and back - Bodmin and back - This ampunts to 56 miles !!
TRURO Half Marathon - Sat. 19th Sept.
Came in 513th out of 518 finishers in today's Truro half marathon carrying my Shelterbox in a time of 3.00.08, managed to collect £114 in cash and £20 in text donations. Really pleased with that considering the nasty hills.The GREAT NORTH RUN - Sunday 13th Sept.
Official time for me and the ShelterBox in the Great North Run is 3.04.50, plus a lot of support and donations
into the bucket. Really enjoyed it and happy to have spread the word for
the charity. Many thanks to everyone for their support. - Colin.
Colin's placing was 37776th out of 57000+
achievement - considering - carrying box, collecting, stopping and
talking to supporters, spreading the word for Rotary !
Photo at the finish - looking good.
Only 690km left in my 2015km challenge to raise funds for ShelterBox, I'm still on target to complete the distance by New Year's Eve. The Great North Run on Sunday 13th Sept. 2015, is my next organised event, I'll be carrying the Shelterbox for a lot more than the 13.1 miles of the course though! - Look out for me on the Tele !!
I think I'll get a T-shirt with 'Daft not stupid' printed on it in response to how many people ask me if the Shelterbox is full or empty. I'm lucky that I do not need it to be full for me to survive.
