Tonne Run Challenge 2020

Running 1000km in support of Education for the Children…

EFTC is an international NGO that operates the School of Hope in Jocotenango, Guatemala, where two thirds of the population live on less than £1.50 a day and 80% of children will never attend high school. Throughout 2020 I aim to run 1000km and raise at least £1 per kilometre. Please support me on this year-long adventure!

Keep up to date on my progress…

Not Quite to Plan

Both my blog and Strava feeds have been very quiet in recent weeks. Safe to say my plan of reaching the 800km mark by end of July has not happened. In fact I haven’t been for a run in more or less a month now which has definitely had a major impact on my physicalContinue reading “Not Quite to Plan”

Hurry Up and Wait

I really am a bit useless at blogging. It’s been six weeks since I’ve written anything, during which time we’ve continued to wait for a reprieve from lockdown. Alas, nothing too material as yet. The current situation has left inspiration levels a little thin on the ground, and to a certain extent the same appliesContinue reading “Hurry Up and Wait”

April Update

I’m now up to 373km of the 1000km total target, comfortably caught up with the 100km per month sub-target I set myself at the start of the year. I’ve now moved ahead of this in trying to hit 30km each week, which Strava tells me I’ve managed for the last seven weeks. If I can keep this up I’ll hit the 1000km target at some point in September!

Where are we now?

Since my last post a grand total of twenty days ago the entire world has turned upside down. We Brits have quickly moved on from the unspeakable B-word (Brexit – what was that?) to the C-word, Coronavirus, or Covid-19. At time of writing the nation has been advised to socially distance/self-isolate by remaining in ourContinue reading “Where are we now?”

What Happened to February..?

All in all, February was reasonably successful on the running front. I put up a total of 82km so still a little short on my monthly target of 100km but not bad considering it’s the shortest month of the year AND I took a week off for moving house in the middle…

January Check In

Started strong, hit an early wall but pulled it back a little… When setting yourself such a big overall target you really want to get out of the blocks as quickly as possible and take a decent chunk out of the number. That was my intention come 1st January as I looked to get aheadContinue reading “January Check In”
