Neil Jones

Brathay 10in10 Athlete

I'm 51 and live in Hale, Altrincham. I've completed 22 marathons over the last few years, including the Brathay 10in10 in 2021 and managed to raise a decent amount for a great cause. The experience was so positive I had to come back and try the event again....and raise even more to help disadvantaged children and young people. Although, this time I won't need to propose to my other half (Danielle) when I cross the finish line on day 10 like I did last time!

Having survived a pretty bad motorbike accident in my youth, I was told I might not walk properly again. But I came through and now feel running is something I should really try to appreciate (I'm not built for running). The experience also made me realise how lucky we are in so many ways, so helping disadvantaged children and young people is a no brainer for me.

The Brathay 10in10 is an immense challenge, made even trickier by the course profile, which is a tad 'lumpy'. I can't wait to get started and raise as much money as possible for this fantastic cause!
