My name is James Oldfield, I am an amature athlete competing in running and Duathlon events. I set out to achieve a dream I believe every athlete should have - which is to represent your country. My dream has been achieved, I have been selected to represent team GB at age group level at the Duathlon Sprint Distance World Championships which are held in August 2017 in Canada.
For me this is a huge personal challenge and would be a big step up in competition level. However it is one I would like to take on, for a number of reasons but mainly to inspire others within the sport, gain vaulable experience and to have the chance to represent my country.
It was only 4 years ago I was battling cancer and now I have this fantastic opportunity.
Along with this huge opportunity, comes huge finanical outlay. I am only part of a local running club Sedgefield Harriers and Atom Health & fitness gym and have a very understanding family that allow me to train. I am looking for kit sponsors as well as trying to raise sponsorship for other expenses such as travel and accommodation.
I am therefore asking for your support to help make my dream happen. So if you would like to support me and are interested in sponsoring me on a personal basis or via a business, please take a look at my page or contact me for more information.
All donations will be very much appreciated and I am happy to promote any sponsors via social media.
