This year my challenge has been to try and complete the 250 mile Thames ring running race for the fantastic charity Mission Employable. The race is a 250 mile self supported/navigated running race, that loops around the major waterways of the Thames and grand union canal.
I have never ran beyond around 110 miles in one go, so running 250 miles continuously within a 100hour cut off time is going to be more than challenging! But to do it for such a great cause, always give me an extra advantage. You can find out more about the race and follow my slow progress at https://www.challenge-running.co.uk/races/thames-ring-250/

Here is their mission statement:
At Mission EmployAble, we train young adults with learning disabilities to make the most of their individual talents and help them find a paid job after their training that will allow them to lead purposeful lives and be valued as active members of their communities.
Thank you for your time and any support that you can offer.
