I'm attempting to run 28 Marathons in 28 Countries in 28 Days, as a salute to Humanity at a time of great division. Funds raised for charity

This run was completed in February 2020 - if you are looking for details of my 2021 run please go here



I am attempting to run 28 marathons in 28 countries in 28 days, raising money for charities such as Unicef and their work with child refugees in Europe.

In our country and our world there has been far too much talk of division. We can change this by talking of unity. 

As europeans we have achieved so much since 1945, no matter how legal agreements might have changed over the years. Peace, friendship, trade, even love. A sharing of cultures without losing our identities. That is the true power of union. 

So today, let’s start to put these divisions behind us. It is the perfect day to start something I have dreamt of doing for many years: run through 28 of the capitals of Europe.

I will attempt to run 28 marathons in 28 countries in 28 days, raising money for charity.

United, not divided, we can make humanity great again.

The charities that will benefit

I am raising funds to help charity projects supporting cultural exchange, learning and understanding and promoting common humanity across Europe and the world, this includes Unicef's work with children and child refugees.

Thanks for all your support
