Online Author Event

Covid-19 may mean that in-person events have had to be cancelled, so we’re heading online instead… I’ll be sharing parts of my book Sickbed To Summits, the story behind it, my motivation and what I’ve learnt along the way. Staying in is the new going out, so to register for this FREE event complete the contact form below:

The Spring Fling 2021 – CLIC Sargent

When a fellow brain tumour survivor asks you to join them on a challenge, well it would be rude not to! From 10,000ft we will be flinging ourselves out of a plane into the skies above Whitchurch to raise funds for this really great charity. Cancer shatters young lives.

CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly to stop cancer destroying young lives. They recognise everyone is different, so they work hard to help when each child and young person needs it most.

Fundraising details to follow…

12th/13th June 2021

Lake District Ultra Challenge

This should originally taken place in June 2020, but was cancelled due to Covid-19. This will be my longest ultra event, covering a total distance of 100km around the Lake District, with 2650 meters of ascent. Training with neuro fatigue is not easy, and so I have enlisted the help of Jon Fearne to come up with a training programme that helps to build stamina and endurance, whilst not leaving me wiped out in bed after each session. So far, so good! You can find out more about Jon and his approach to endurance and adventure sports coaching here.

If you would like to support fundraising for either, or both of these charities, you can do so by clicking here on either BANA or Brain Tumour Research. Thank you so much for your support.

Tatton Park Half Marathon

This will be my first post op half marathon… To say I’m a little nervous is an understatement! After a year of cancelled events, I felt like I needed something to aim for as we head into Autumn.

***Update*** This was cancelled, but ran the distance anyway. Whilst there were no medals, there were a few new personal records made!!

25th July 2020

Sandstone Trail Solo Challenge

Given the impact of Covid-19 on various sporting events, I have taken the plunge and devised this event, which will be my first ever ultra distance event.

I will be using this event and others this year to support The British Acoustic Neuroma Association (BANA) and Brain Tumour Research charities. I hope to highlight the vital work they do and raise funds to help them continue their work.
