Michael and Gabs

“After doing several half marathons, we decided to step up to full marathon distance. London was set to be the first one for both of us and training was going well. Unfortunately, current circumstances meant it was postponed to October. With so many charities struggling for funds currently, we decided we would come up with a challenge as part of #twopointsixchallenge to make sure our charities would still get some money at this time of year.

Our challenge was to run 23 laps each of the farm we live on, in a relay, then run a final 47th lap together. This took the total distance to 26.2 miles and we completed it in 3 hours 36 minutes and 15 seconds between us. I’m raising funds for Lord’s Taverners as they do great work as the UK’s leading youth and disability cricket charity. Gabs is raising funds for Cancer Research UK as she lost her mum to Breast Cancer in 2015.”
