    I never like asking and rarely do, but here I am.

    As some of you know, I'm a runner, drinker , motorhomer ,rock singer ,meet organiser, and general bad boy:Wink:

    Which of course makes this task even harder.

    I have set the mammoth task of running 2 extremely enduring ultra marathons and a standard marathon in between in just 6 weeks.
    I am also fitting in a 3 series 5mile a go cross country series in between.

    The ultra marathons consist of a 29 mile run through the very hilly and muddy Peak District which I completed last weekend 6th April.

    Next on the 28th April comes the Shakespeare marathon, 26.3 miles around the lovely Stratford upon Avon with a very strict cut off time at half way and the end.

    Next on the 11th May is the toughest challenge of all. A full 33 miles along the sandstone trail from Whitchurch to Frodsham. Hilly muddy and tough.


    in between all of this, the toughest job of all will be attending the Peterborough show with a load of funsters.

    I have decide to do this in order to try and raise a few coins for our injured servicemen returning from active duty in war zones. Help for heroes, if you would like to sponsor me then bless you if not, that's fine thank you for looking, please click the link to my page..

    Happy touring funsters

    PS we will be staying at the Stratford race course on the weekend of the Stratford marathon if you want to join us/ support me.
