Ex Gunner running 100 miles in one day

I'm a recently retired Gunner, so I hope you don't mind me posting this here.

I am going to be running the Sri Chinmoy Self Transcendence 24hr ultra marathon in Oct 2009 in aid of the Down's Syndrome Association.

My aims are to:

1. Raise £10,000 for the Down's Syndrome Association
2. Run over 100 miles in 24hrs. Yes. 100 miles in one day.

My nephew, George, has Down's and I wanted to do something special to help families with Down's lead full and rewarding lives.

I would be really, really grateful if you might consider sponsoring me/donating. Even small amounts will add up.


It is very, very easy:

100 miles in one day

If you feel that it is appropriate, I would be in your eternal debt if you would forward the link to your friends, family and acquaintances - I need as wide an audience as possible!

Thank you so much for your time!
Go for it, you should eat 100 miles in 24 hours running, here in the Isle of Man there is a walk, The Parish Walk, it covers all the Parishes in the Island, and is 85miles long, with a "Time Out" of 24 hours. This year there were 121 finishers within the 24 hour time limit.

Check out the site, including photos and stats at:


Good Luck.
Many thanks to those who have offered support.

Fundraising got off to a good start, but has now slowed down rapidly.

Please, please, please could you spare a little cash to help families who have to live with Down's Syndrome?

I'm only asking you for a few quid in recognition of the months and months of training that I will be putting myself through in order to get into shape to run over 100 miles in 24hrs.

Please be as generous as you are able.

Many thanks.
