So 2020 was a bit shite and i personally did a lot of sitting on my backside not doing much (as not a lot we could do given the circumstances). I became unmotivated, lazy and had a very much beer and crisp diet (not recommended). 

A soft launch of JMW Promotions, working with some amazing artists and putting on and supporting a few virtual music events gave me a second wind and new focus which is something that i want to take into this new year!

So.... With 'Here For The Music 2021' music festival penciled in for 3rd-5th September, i am giving myself 245 days to run the 874 mile challenge that is Land's End to John O'Groats.

It will be a short and slow start as havent even run for a bus since March BUT soon will be working towards half and maybe even full marathon distance as time goes on!

JMW Promotions have 4 projects for 2021 and this event will aim to support all of them (with many other events planned during the year).


1) Donate what you can to this crowdfunder page.

Money raised will be split between

a) Food Banks across the UK continuing the efforts of many in 2020

b) Supporting Unsigned Musicians and Small Music Venues as we continue to fight the impact of Covid on many livelihoods

2) Donate unwanted gifts and sports shirts.

a) Any unwanted gifts or top condition items you not longer require. This will be collected until Christmas 2021 and donated across several charities providing gifts to children and families that otherwise wouldn't have any.

b) Unwanted Sports Jerseys. Many underprivileged families as well as those that are homeless will otherwise never be able to afford a jersey of their favorite sports teams. By donating any that are no longer worn (in reasonable to good condition) we will work again with several charities to get these to areas of the UK that can bring some happiness to individuals and families. 

I will post weekly updates of how i am getting on directly from my Strava app so you can watch my progress and i will post videos and photos along the way too!

Thank you in advance for your support!!

Let's make 'Land's End to John O'Groats Virtual Challenge 2021' happen
