Running 268 miles in 'Britain's Most Brutal Race'

188% Raised

I am Paul Reeve, an Ultra Marathon Runner and the senior Property Manager for the Diocese of Truro. I will be taking part in the Spine, "Britain’s most brutal race", a 268 mile, non-stop, uncompromising winter challenge encompassing the entire Pennine Way. The idea of running 268 miles through waist deep snow doesn't appeal to many people, but it does for me! And I am doing it to raise money for St Petroc’s Society. I love running and take part in races regularly, but this will be the biggest yet. I want to use my efforts to support St Petroc’s Society as a way of giving something back. In doing these marathons there’s a sense of personal achievement but Ultra running is so selfish. You only do it for yourself and it takes you away from family and friends for long periods of time and it’s not cheap. It really is about personal gain, so I thought it was important that others should benefit from my efforts. Working as a Senior Property Manager, I often think of those without a home, and particularly at this cold time of year. I will be running in the middle of winter in waist deep snow and in places I’ll have to wear snow shoes and ice spikes while also carrying everything I will need from my sleeping bag and clothes to a gas stove! Or you could sponsor me 10p per mile = £26.80 in total £10.00 Provides a personal hygiene pack to include essential toiletries, etc £25.00 Provides cutlery, crockery, small electricals for a resident to move on £35.00 Provides all meals for one week for a supported resident Why don't you sponsor me just 1p per mile I will run = £2.68 every penny helps this cause. I am being sponsored by At Your Pace, a specialist running shop in Helston who also support St Petroc's Society with their Street Feet Campaign ending trench foot. And I am being sponsored by South West Building & Maintenance who are partners in my work. I wish to thank these organisations for their generosity, enabling me to do this.
