My story

A world record attempt to become the first person to run Europe's Danube river – solo – from sea to source. Approximately 1,700 miles, or a marathon a day for 60-something days. I'll carry all my own kit, including camping gear.

From my research I don't think this has ever been done before. The route will take me from the Black Sea in Romania, through Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and finish at the Danube's source in Donauschingen in Germany.

I'm doing this run to raise money to support projects that can help improve the life chances of poverty-impacted children worldwide. Every child deserves the best chance at life, regardless of the circumstances they are born into. The charities I have chosen to support are a mix of global and local, with Fara working in Romania. I felt it important to support people in the countries I will visit. The charities are also at the forefront of the response to the war in Ukraine. I've also chosen one charity that does incredible work helping children in the UK start their school day with full tummies.

And a massive thanks to everyone who has generously donated so far.
