au suivant...


The May the 4th Be With You virtual run has now completely sold out.  Two batches of 500 medals sold out in a matter of hours, raising £2000 for the MS Trust and making a huge dent into our fundraising for the Marathon... before we've even really started.

This was humbling and exciting.

It gets better though: Virtual Runner have announced that they will be hosting another run on May 6th: The Revenge of the Sixth.

Once again, all money raised will be donated to the MS Trust.

This vastly exceeds my expectations and left me completely speechless and left C. in floods of tears when we heard on Friday evening.  This race goes on sale on Tuesday evening at 7pm.  If you fancy the look of that glow in the dark Darth Maul medal, then you probably need to be quick if you want to get yourself entered, as I imagine these will sell out pretty quickly too.

Sometimes people can be amazing.  I know these races are selling out because of Star Wars, but the races are being put on by some very special people who are doing everything they can to help us hit our fundraising targets for a small but very worthwhile charity that is very close to our hearts.

Sometimes, 'thank you' just doesn't seem like enough.
