Penny-a-mile Ultra Challenge

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 :)

A Slaymaker Special...

We had a great Easter day out with the Slaymakers in Chepstow today.  Charlie loved the castle, especially the medieval toilets, and the grassy hills for biking...

I loved the Mez-special of lasagne with crumble for pud. Mmmmmmmmmmm.
