Started on 24th May 2020 Sittingbourne, England, United Kingdom

Having felt pretty helpless in the response to the Covid-19 pandemic over the past weeks I have decided to do the one thing I am able to do to help and that is to try and raise funds for NHS staff by running a silly distance.  I was due to take part in the South Downs Way 100 mile event in June but this has obviously been postponed so I have chosen to still attempt the distance, non-stop, on Friday the 29th May.  Having stopped training properly when lockdown hit, it is by no means a given that this is doable but I will try my best!!

I have decided to raise funds for two organisations that directly assist NHS staff. One is NHS Charities Together who offer all kinds of practical and emotional support to NHS staff dealing with Covid-19 patients.  If you are in a position to help and are happy to this please donate via this crowdfunding page.

Thank you in advance and wish me luck!!

Well done Simon! You and Steve must be absolutely bonkers - but you've raised so much money and awareness for charities that do amazing work in the process. Thank you and hope you're resting up now! Cadi
