My story

On July 26th I will be taking on the Lakeland 100 ultramarathon challenge. The event starts at 6pm on Friday and consists of a single-stage 105 mile (170 km) adventure circumnavigating the fells of the Lake District. To promote the benefits of a healthy and adventurous lifestyle to our kids living in rural communities, I will be raising funds and awareness for Willowset pre-school and Stoke-St-Gregory primary school. Any funds raised will be split equally between the organisations.

So the mission has been completed... We set-off on a steady climb out of Coniston on Friday evening at 6pm and were immediately rewarded with spectacular scenery of the surrounding lakes, mountains and even the coast in the far west. Shortly after the sun disappeared, we headed out of Wasdale Head and up through the infamous Blacksail Pass. It was spectacular to look back and see a train of head torches in the pitch dark. The night session went really well and by the time I started the climb toward Blencathra, the light had broken through and once again enjoyed the far reaching views. Some early morning rain passed through, but didn't dampen the spirits. The views over Ullswater on the way to Dalemain were just spectacular. Getting to Dalemain was a real boost as we were met by all of the 50 mile runners cheering us in as they prepared to set-off on their own challenge. As I headed off and passed Pooley Bridge, the heavens opened up once again, and this time the rain stayed for the rest of the day. With 70km to go, this made the conditions really challenging underfoot and all the wet caused my feet to blister really badly underneath, and it became a mental battle the rest of the way. As I arrived into Ambleside, the light soon changed to dark and the headtorch came out once again to tackle the final 30km. The penultimate check point seemed to take forever to get to as my feet were completely battered, but once I hit the final ascent known as Jacob's Ladder, I pushed on and over the final climb before descending back into Coniston some 33 hours later having covered 170km and climbed near on 7,000m. A truly fantastic experience, and on that required real grit. Thank you to all of you that have supported this cause and I look forward to seeing how the funds get used by Willow Set and SSG School.
