Land’s End to John O’Groats

On 5th September 2022, I will begin my run from Land’s End to John O’Groats to show others that despite life throwing curveballs our way we can still achieve. I will be covering a distance of 40-50 miles a day for 20 days, a total of approximately 855 miles. I aim to become the world’s fastest female, with single-sided deafness, to complete this journey by foot.

Below you will see my planned route – obviously, this may be subject to change so if you want to join me for any section, or just keep up to date with my real time location, check the map above!

Yes, I have my concerns. Running, however, is the least of them! I wonder how much of a problem my tinnitus will be with having road noise around me for approximately 10 hours a day. I worry about not hearing traffic around me (as I have no direction of sound). I’m also apprehensive about how I will cope with fatigue and the nausea associated with it. I have good support around me though, and we’re working hard in training to overcome these issues as best we can.

Throughout the challenge, I aim to raise funds for the British Acoustic Neuroma Association and Manchester Skull Base Foundation (FBT). Both of these organisations have been a great source of support and this is my way of giving back to them in some way.
