Cannock business man's epic run

Alastair is an ultra-endurance athlete, but he will require all his efforts to complete the 145 mile challenge he has committed to. Alastair reports,

"Going to have to push myself to the limit this time after completing a 100 mile ultra run last year in 23 hours. I am planning to run 145 mile non stop from Birmingham to Little Venice in London along the Grand Union Canal tow path on June 25th and 26th, along with my running partner Dave Hicks.

I am already apprehensive but fully committed to doing it and raising money for St. Giles Hospice where my mum and dad have been volunteers for 25 years. The care St.Giles offers to the terminally ill is suberb and I speak to so many people whose relatives have been there and they cannot praise the comfort and care they have experienced enough.


This is my biggest challenge to date and I hope you can dig deep and help me to raise as much money as I can for such a worthwhile cause. 


Many thanks for any support. Donations can be made via
