I have completed 666 miles in 100 days. That is 1 mile for every Typhoon pilot killed during WWII, in order to raise funds and awareness.

Rewards

This project offered rewards

£66 or more

£10p a mile

Technically, 10p a mile would be £66.60p, however, the platform only allows "whole £1" contributions, so £66 sounds better than £67!! 10p for every pilot killed in the Hawker Typhoon during WWII.

£20 or more

Base layer

Sponsor the cost of a base layer for the running challenge. I'm starting in February, it was snowing here at that time last year. Many of the runs will be completed during the early morning or late evening, fitting them in around work...

£20 or more

Running shorts

Normally I don't track my distance when running, but for this I need to. That means I need to take my phone, and carrying it in one hand is a pain in the backside as I've found out the last few days! Sponsor the cost of a pair of running shorts with a dedicated phone pocket to allow me to track the runs accurately and not smash my phone in the process.

£122 or more

Running shoes

Sponsor the cost of a pair of running shoes for the event. Advice is to replace running shoes between 300 - 500 miles. I am particularly keen to avoid injury on this challenge as there a no "off" days. I will replace the shoes at the lower end of the scale, around 300 miles. At 333 miles I will be half way on the challenge and will replace them then. The shoes I wear are the Mizuno Wave Mujin 8 in a 10.5. This reward covers one pair.

£666 or more

666 - £1 per pilot killed

Pledge at this level and receive either: your company name or your name on the running shirts as a "main sponsor". You will then receive that same name mentioned across all social media channels (combined audience 50k+) at least three times per week for the duration of the challenge and in any media reports on the event. Shirts will be worn in any media coverage. Must pledge by 13th February as shirts go to print on the 14th!
