Great North
Run (+++)

The Great North Run, then all the way home
12th - 15th September 2021

On Saturday 12th September 2021, I ran the Great North Run, to fundraise for Mental Health Research UK.

However, realising that no-one who knew me would be likely to sponsor me for a (mere!) half marathon, I decided to make it more difficult ... by running home again afterwards. This means that I ran over 100 miles, or four marathons on four consecutive days, and eventually arrived back home on Wednesday 15 September.
