250k Ultra Marathon Cornish Teaser followed by a 26 Miler Finisher for the incredible African Vision Malawi - a heartfelt charity set up in Malawi, Africa that work with and through communities to develop long-term and sustainable solutions to the welfare of orphans and vulnerable people through holistic education, health, environmental & self-sufficiency programmes 

Theses guys have been operating for 16 years and supporting 60,000 people. Including supporting 4,000. orphans in their communities along with 474 people with disabilities

They're passionate about the environment, paying close attention to ecological building, reforestation, permaculture and clean water - and I am just brushing the surface here!

My Partner's mother Heather Palmer (HP like my fav wizard) grew up in Malawi, a place that she calls home, since returning over 16 years ago she realised that her childhood home needed her help. This is when she (with the help from her family and friends) set up this awesome charity calling it 'Landirani' which simply means in Chichewa ‘please receive’ (Fun fact :D). 

Anyhow nuff said check them out @ AND... of course more than happy to introduce if wish to chat & hear more from HP and the gang themselves <3

Why the cheeky Fundraising challenge....

As many of you know I enjoy putting myself through endurance pain blasters, each new challenge requiring more physical and mental pain than the previous :D

I have always wanted to take part in the London Marathon, so I am super excited to have been given an opportunity to take part in this years Virtual London Marathon (basically meaning I can run wherever I happen to be ;)) SO HUGE Thank you African Vision Malawi!!

However to give it a spicy kick...

... And to continue my secret (not so secret) goal to run an ultra marathon every year :D - this felt like the perfect opportunity to also run my 2021 ultra 

SO my friends, I have decided to add to my London Marathon challenge with a cheeky 250km Ultra to kick it all off with, running over 5 days across the BEAUTIFUL Cornish Coast line. 

A 250km trail event is something I have also been dreaming about, since taking part in my first Ultra Marathon, Race to the Stones 100k in the summer 2019!! With Covid suspending many organised events I have become increasingly interested in creating my own challenge which 'could' be WAY more fun.... along with many more logistical 'bugger' ups ;)! 

After the stunning mountainous and arduous ascents and descents of the HK100 Ultra last January 2020 I thought the Cornish Coast would be a great match to test my limits!

Please find the route in my next post!

Thank you all and again no donation is too small, these guys are truly achieving amazing things for Malawi communities and any support is greatly appreciated 

Love ya'll...
