Rather than beat around the bush I'll cut to the main info, I ran the Mallorca Ultra Trail last Saturday. It's best you first watch this video. At the very least you can have a chuckle at my expense.
Then, here's the information you need to know:
1) I'm running three off-road mountain ultramarathons this year, the Mallorca Ultra Trail (40 miles - did it last weekend - you just watched the video), The Ultra-Tour of the Peak District (60 miles - 21st June) and the Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc (100 miles - 30th August)
2) With a combined distance of 200 miles I'm asking people to consider donating a penny-a-mile to help me fund raise for the charity RP Fighting Blindness (a charity supporting medical research into treatments for a type of eye disease, click here for more info). A donation of £2 is less than a latte but, with enough peoples help, I think your donation could be part of something much bigger.
Please feel free to forward this onto anyone who might be interested - you never know this could be the next viral email :)
Being a modern-type of bloke you can follow me on Twitter as @LukeMoseley3
Crucially you need to know how to donate. My JustGiving page is up and waiting for your donation, go on, make its day!
Finally, I know you all give money to charity in lots of different ways. If this isn't for you, no worries :)
