As you probably remember because my knee injury I was not able to participate to the previous challenge
I choose this one which is called "Pony Express" New Forest Multistage Ultra 2014 60 Miles, 2 Days
Help me to support the hard work of St Christopher’s Hospice in Sydenham, London.
Their vision is of a world in which all dying people and those close to them have access to the appropriate care and support, when they need it, wherever they need it and whoever they are.
They support a population of 1.5 million people covering the boroughs of Croydon, Bromley, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark.
It costs them £17.5 million to run the hospice each year, only one third of this is provided by the NHS.
All our services to patients and families are free.
I found this extremely inspiring us to me and to my family, as we didn't have a great deal to help when my dear groundmother passed away.
For these reasons, I'm going to participate at the event, called The Pilgrim Challenge North Downs Way Multistage Ultra 2014 (website: http://www.xnrg.co.uk/pilgrim2014.htm) and is 66 miles running in 2 days
If you are not familiar with the distance, is like a trail marathon and a bit every day for two days
