Brathay 10in10 Sponsor & Support Team
I am married to Trudi my long suffering but very supportive wife and together we run our own pub business which we have had for 10 years.
I ran my first marathon way back in 1998 in Sheffield, followed by three London Marathons and a Blackpool Marathon between 2001 and 2003. Hardly prolific but everyone has to start somewhere. It wasn't until 2011 going into 2012 when I completed the Brathay10in10 that I really got the marathon bug and I have been running regularly ever since.
As well as running marathons I have also completed several long distance triathlons and most recently my own challenge taking 21 days and covering over 1600 miles under my own power.
All of these madcap ideas have been taken to raise money for Brathay. A charity that does some wonderful work with young adults and teenagers who may not have the support network that many of us enjoyed when we were growing up.
As well as raising funds for Brathay, Trudi and I have supported and sponsored the Brathay 10in10 event for the last few years. We have been able to help those who have been inspired to take on this huge challenge. They in turn give us the inspiration to keep on doing daft things for Brathay.
Get up, get involved and do something good for your community.
