Hi and thanks for visiting my crowdfunder page.

My name is Sebastian and I decided on August 3, 2020 to run my first 10K with 6 weeks notice.

The run

An email had popped up with an ad for a 10K run in Kew Gardens - one of my favourite places in London. I've done a couple of parkruns but the 10K is slightly daunting - just the right challenge then.

I've put together a training plan based on some YouTube videos which is now decorating the fridge and I feel fairly positive about it.

Race day is Sunday, September 13, 2020 at 8:15 am.

My plan is to cycle there in the morning as a warm up and my dream is a time below 55 minutes, but anything under 1h would be great.

The charity

In 2010-11 I've spent a year living in Malawi and found a small charity there that needed a pair of hands to support orphans and vulnerable children: African Vision Malawi.

I worked in their head office and was also able to visit schools and community centres in the rural area they support, meeting many wonderful people and seeing first hand the amazing work that this charity is doing.

Please join me in supporting them on their mission.

Many thanks in advance and maybe I'll see you in Kew Gardens on the 13th.



PS: For every 20 pounds above my target I'll try to run 1 min faster, counting down from 60 mins. Bring it on!!
