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

What an incredible end to the 10 Days. It has been truly wonderful to see our 10in10 heroes complete their Lap of honour. We will post some video footage on Monday, but for now, here's the fantastic group on the podium celebrating their achievement. This is the 10in10 Class of 2016. Incredible runners, raising money for a superb cause. Please donate to their JustGiving pages to show your appreciation of their untiring efforts to help disadvantaged youngsters. www.brathay.org.uk/runner-profiles1

Three of our heroes have now started Day 10 their Lap Of Honour. Jack, Paul & Kaz. It's a beautiful day for running today & we wish them luck out on the course. They'll get lots of support and a huge welcome they return. It's been an honour to watch their journey so far & will be a delight to see them cross the finish line later today. The runners following them are all previous 10in10'ers running a special Lap of Honour as part of Brathay's 10th Anniversary celebrations. You can donate to their JustGiving pages here. www.brathay.org.uk/runner-profiles1

Day 9 ended well for our runners. All safely back at Brathay, with just one Marathon to go, the Lap Of Honour as it is called. Rob came in at 3:36, with Malc, then Jonathan, Adrian, Chris & Helli, followed by Sonja, Donna, Kaz, then Jack & Paul. Day 10 beckons, a day that the runners will remember for the rest of their lives. Please support the runners by donating to their JustGiving pages, you can find a list here. www.brathay.org.uk/runner-profiles1

Wet & wild for the start of Day 9 but the suns going to do its best to dry the runners out on the second half of the course. Just a few more miles before the runners line up for the Lap of Honour, as day 10 is named. Please support these runners, they are battered, bruised, tired & emotional but somehow still dragging themselves around what now seems a brutal course. You can find their individual JustGivingpages from this link. Please donate what you can, it really helps keep them going. www.brathay.org.uk/runner-profiles1

From BrathayRunning: Day 9 and another day of awesomeness for Jonathan! Please support his fundraising for Brathay and our work with disadvantaged young people:

Day 9: Lots of familiar faces seeing the runners off today - many previous 10in10ers who've come to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of this epic challenge. Have a good day out there class of '16!

The shuffle brothers, as they are affectionately known, started off early on Day 9, it's blustery & wet, but forecast to clear up. We also catch up with Aly Knowles and find out what its like supporting the 10in10'ers in their challenge. Please donate to the fantastic cause that these runners are raising money for.
