Support has been a little disappointing this year, only 54 people signing up to take part, but within that there have been some great efforts!
On our mid-term leaderboard, Mark Hicks has leapt into a commanding lead, being the first to break the 100-mile barrier.
Notable efforts also to Avril Tuohy, Debbie Godden, Frank Ilett, Gail Bennett, Nichola Difolco, Stuart Bunt and Sue Smith, all of whom have stepped out over 70 miles so far.
Top effort, everyone!
Special mention however, and my “man of the match” award so far, has to go to Big Kev – already clocked 41 miles to date, which is truly EXTRAORDINARY! Just can’t keep a good man down! Great inspiration, Kev!
We’re not making much of a dent however on the round-the-world challenge, so keep going, keep the faith, and if you haven’t yet signed up, it’s never too late! Perhaps there are some runners out there who want to try and do 100 miles before the end of May? Sign up here.
Information will follow next week about the Grand Finale walk on Sunday 28th May. The route is currently under preparation, but as last year, for ease of access for the most people, it’ll be in Central London. Hope to see you there!
Make the effort to help in making a big difference to youngsters who really need our support.
