Running away from 40, Jonathan's 10 in 10 challengeI hope so too! I think it's just grumbling, I've not done anything about it as yet other than resting it.

For a while now I've been plotting to organise my own marathon; now, with the help of the 'Grim Up North Running team', I am one step closer.

Who's up for a mixed terrain marathon and half marathon in June next year, probably the 18th June to be exact in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside? The race will start in Keighley and head over Ilkley moor and back. It will hopefully be chip timed with a wristband dibber system and will have a bespoke individual medal.

Any profits from the event will go to the Brathay trust, with donations to the local Scouts and a local school as they will be supporting the organisation.

Please share this post with any running clubs or groups that may be interested in the race.

Thanks for your support folks :-)

If you're looking for a fabulous Race Photo, we had James "Jumpy" Kirby out on the course. Here's a link to all the photo's he took. www.21cphotos.com/i_event.php?event_id=795 James was at Mile 2 for the Marathon & Half Marathon, then Mile 11 for the Half, and finally Mile 24.5 for the full. As you can see from the images in this post you'll get a cracking shot for just £8.75 - half the price of last years photos. Nice one James.

Back in 2007 Sir Christopher Ball, a Fellow of Brathay Trust, suggested that the Brathay Windermere Marathon incorporates a 10 marathons in 10 days endurance running event – 262 miles over 10 days around England’s largest lake! In its first year eight dedicated athletes established benchmark times and developed a model of support required to complete 10 marathons over consecutive days. This distinctive event, now approaching its tenth year, is now regularly described as “….the UK’s ultimate endurance running event.” We catch up with the now 81 year old who was about to run a Half Marathon & joined the 2016 lap of honour runners for his and their start. Please support his fundraising for Brathay: www.justgiving.com/Sir-Christopher-Ball
